Shea Butter For Skin

Cleopatra's love for Shea butter is perhaps the earliest known historical reference to the usage of a beauty product.  This terrific moisturizer brought a hefty price in the barter economy of her time.  Even though it came from the another corner of the continent she came to rely on it in the arid climate of ancient Egypt to help keep her skin moist and youthful.  It was a regal commodity that was stored in the highest quality clay pots for maximum protection. Jump forward over two thousand years later and the term Shea butter is now a big piece of...

CDC recommends Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) for repelling mosquitos
 One of the main reasons for using Eucalyptus Lemon in our initial testing was that it is the only organic compound recommended by the Center For Disease Control (CDC) as being effective in repelling insects such as mosquitos.  Our testing is consistent with their findings and we feel it is the perfect natural ingredient to use as an alternative to harmful chemicals such as DEET.      Applying our Catskills Gold Bug Repellent every 60-90 minutes in bug ridden areas provides natural protection against mosquitos and other annoying insects.  We use the highest quality USDA certified organic Eucalyptus lemon oil for maximum effectiveness....

Clorox Owns Burt's Bees?

   Yes, that fun looking product branded as being made by an old beekeeper from Maine is now owned by a multi-billion dollar chemical company.  Burt Shavitz was a true naturist.  Born in New York City, he eventually decided to move to Upstate New York where he became a beekeeper.  Much like our story, vastly preferring the tranquility of the mountains to city life.  As big fans of Burt's life story, we are very happy with the fact that the bees who provide us with our Catskills Gold Lip Balm beeswax are direct descendants of the same honey bees Burt became a...
