Please welcome 'Bumblebee distinguendus' (Bombus distinguendus
) more commonly known as the Great Yellow bumblebee; we have tried to keep the colouring of this lovely bee as close to its natural colouring as possible. The background colouring reflects the striations of Lewisian Gneiss, the igneous bedrock that forms outcrops in the areas where the bee lives.
As with our other bumblebee soaps, 20% of the sale price goes directly to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust
. Thee Great Yellow bumblebee is one of our rarest bumblebees; once widespread across the UK, it is now restricted to just a few areas in the far north of the country, notably Orkney and the Outer Hebrides where its last stronghold is on the machair.
As well as our usual lashings of olive and sunflower oils, shea and cocoa butters, we have added beautiful organic golden jojoba oil and given the soap a lovely unisex earthy-citrus aroma, courtesy of bergamot, grapefruit, cypress and vetivert essential oils. Additionally, Bumblebee Distinguendus is vegan-friendly.
