Earth Friendly & 100% Cruelty Free
The Professor Fuzzworthy & Beauty and the bees philosophy is to harvest, create and provide purely natural products, without chemicals, animal tested ingredients or products, plastic or hype… done with care since 1993.
Here is how we care for you and the environment:
Our products, and importantly all ingredients, are virtually all edible or foods, tested only on humans (not animals) and have been since people began using these natural ingredients to care for their bodies.
We support wherever possible local producers, small raw material supply businesses.
We do not use synthetics. We use no petrochemicals, harsh chemical scents or chemical preservatives, so that you can be absolutely sure that no animal has suffered to produce your product. Herbs and honey have been used by humans for centuries without the harmful side effects increasingly evident in today’s chemical-laden world.
We ourselves only use earth friendly packaging – with plastics used only as a very last resort if we cannot obtain a glass, paper or tin alternative container.
Recent research has shown that the use of phthalates (a chemical softening agent) implicated as an endocrine system disruptor in the manufacture of plastics can leach into oil based contents. Plastic is also the number one environmental pollution curse. Beauty and the bees do not use plastic containers except for bottle caps and inserts, where we have no choice. Packaging is in amber glass (not plastic) and we use recycled paper materials/boxes.
HAL 9000 - OUR PACKAGE RECYCLING
We proudly produce the cardboard that is used for packing your orders in-house with our own shredder (we call him Hal 9000) from cardboard generated by ourselves and other small business : repurposing waste that would have otherwise gone to landfill.
Yay for the environment! We ask you to add to your own recycling bin or repurpose again for gift wrap etc:…we think it’s kinda pretty!
And yes, all other packing materials are biodegradable including cornstarch spoons ( included with creams) and bubbles are recycled (again from other small businesses so they get a second use) edible cornstarch or wheat.
Feed them to your chickens if you have them!
- Where bags are required ( for free samples of soaps, etc in mail orders) we use biodegradable cellophane bags, and only kraft recycled paper bags in store.
- We use only recycled/earth friendly shipping materials to pack mail orders - aside from USPS required shipping boxes.
- Packing boxes are all recycled Kraft card.
- The spoons/spatulas provided with our moisture creams are not plastic but also biodegradable made of cornstarch.
We use only recyclable clear or brown glass where necessary to prevent light damage to the vitamin-rich contents.
Where possible we use only recycled paper pulp packaging/printed matter
All our products are handmade in a chemical and detergent - free environment.
As a small, environmentally sensitive, local producer we do not create mega factory waste. We recycle wherever possible. Our original store in Bellerive was built entirely from re-cycled materials from a local Resource and Waste Management Co-operative.
