In this episode, I’m Hive Talkin all things cosmetics with UK-based specialist Dr. Sara Robb. You’ve seen the products on the shelves and probably noticed that so many of them contain beeswax and honey and that’s not just for marketing purposes. Both are proven to have amazing health benefits and you could be making your own sustainable small-batch products in no time - with just a little guidance from Dr. Sara!

Dr. Sara Robb began making honey soaps and beeswax creams back in 2003. With 20 years of formulating experience and numerous books and journal articles under her belt, she now writes a regular column in Bee Craft Magazine and provides cosmetic recipes and guidance to small-scale producers.

Listen as we talk through why what we put on our skin is as important as what we put in our bellies, the benefits of real honey, how to use bee products to make cosmetics and what the legal requirements are to actually turn your bee craft into a small (or global!) business.
