Bumblebee Lucorum

£6.25£7.30

Bombus lucorum, the white-tailed bumblebee, is one of the more common of our native UK bumblebees.  It is also one of the first to emerge from hibernation in the Spring.
‘Bumblebee Lucorum’ is scented with an essential oil blend that includes lashings of lavender supported by cedarwood and mandarin, and a lilac/purple swirl beneath the bees to represent fields of lavender. With local cold-pressed rapeseed oil, olive oil and sunflower oil, shea and cocoa butters and creamy coconut milk (which means that Bumblebee Lucorum is now vegan-friendly).

A large percentage of the sale price of each bar will go directly to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.

There are two options for packaging.  Please choose one of the options from the drop down list further down the page:

Basic packaging:

All mineral pigments we use are laboratory-purified, nature-identical oxides, hydroxides and ultramarines.  Legislation now prohibits (thankfully) the use of mined sources of these minerals as they may contain harmful contaminants such as arsenic and toxic heavy metals.  The mineral pigments we use have exactly the same chemical formula as the mined version, but are 100% pure, non-irritating and thus totally safe for cosmetic use; EU labelling directives requires that each one be listed according to a specific universally acknowledged code number, the ‘ci number’.
We do NOT use any synthetic colours or pigments such as F&DC lab colours.
Our supplier for mica has assured us that it is not mined using child labour.

Price is for one bar, 95g approx / naked bar.

Packaged product weights (NB these weights are an approximation only)
Basic packaging – 100g approx

Please note: as this is a handmade product there will be variations between individual bars; the product images displayed are only examples of the design although the overall theme will be the same.  Generally speaking, no two bars are exactly the same and may have slightly different dimensions owing to their hand-cut nature.
