Ask Naturally Queen Bee
Why choose Naturally Queen Bee?
Originating in the heart of Staffordshire, here at NQB we are passionate about providing good quality skin care products at an affordable price. After researching the potential benefits of using beeswax and other natural ingredients our founder, Rachel, decided to create skin care products that are formulated using natural and organic ingredients.
Where do you source your ingredients?
The ingredients we use are sourced responsibly from one of the UK's leading suppliers. As a small independent producer we can order small quantities of quality ingredients, we only order what we need, when we need it, this means our products are as fresh as possible when you receive them. Our creams are hand made in small controlled batches, this enables NQB to pay close attention to the detail. We do not hold excessive stock, we are virtually 'making to order'
What does Organic mean?
Organic means that the ingredients have been harvested without the use of synthetic chemical compounds. Our organic creams use the best natural plants and flowers, so that our creams work in harmony with your skin. You can be sure you are purchasing a quality skin care product. Our skin care products contain at least 90.75% organic ingredients, which is hard to beat!
What does Natural mean?
Natural means - the ingredients are found in nature, for example Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Sunflower oil and Cocoa butter. This also covers naturally occurring minerals, like mica, kaolin clay and beeswax.
Can Essential Oils irritate the skin?
Essential Oils have long been used for their benefits to the skin and general well being. We use a range of natural essential oils in our creams, and we are careful to use safe percentages as to not irritate the skin (Less than 1% in our skin creams and less than 2% in our foot products). We would advise if you have very sensitive skin to do a 'patch test' first.
Are your products tested on animals?
You can be assured that NONE of our products or ingredients are tested on animals.
Cosmos Creams and Soil Association
We are delighted that our base creams conform to the COSMOS (COSMetic Organic Standard), we then add Organic Natural Essential Oils to enrich our creams further.
By trusting in our creams, you can be certain they are Organic and Natural.
Soil Association, we have also ensured that our supplier conforms to the Soil Association for ingredients with organic content.
This ensures that organic agriculture should sustain and enhance the health of soil, plant, animal and human as one and indivisible.
Eliminating Single Use Plastic
We are passionate about NOT using single use plastics, we use either Aluminium or PET1 grade plastic, both are fully recyclable.
Recycling aluminium saves around 95% of the energy needed to make the metal from raw materials. eg. what you recycle today could be made into a new can, filled and put back into use in just 60 days. In a whole year, that one can could be recycled six times, saving enough energy to make 160 new cans.
PET1 - Lightweight for transport and packaging, strong and flexible, minimising additional packaging required, fully recyclable, low energy input in recycling, the plastic does not leach harmful chemicals if placed in landfill.
Recycling and Re-using
All our packaging is recyclable, (if you can, please re-use it) If we use any packaging that is not considered recyclable eg. plastic bubble wrap, you can be assured we are re-using what we have been sent.
