Our Honey’s The Bees Knees!
We believe The Body Shop® Community Fair Trade honey is something extra special. We source it from the remote Sheka rainforest in the Ethiopian Highlands, a biodiversity hotspot that’s protected by UNESCO.
– Our Sheka honey has a very distinctive taste and smell because of the fragrant rainforest flowers that the bees collect the nectar from. Its light floral aroma makes it distinct from any other honey.
– The African honey bees that produce our honey are free to roam the rainforest. Every day, the bees communicate through ‘dancing’ to direct each other to the tastiest flowers.
– The honey selected for use in our products is of the highest quality – in fact it’s good enough to eat! It’s sold by high-end brands as table honey.
Wild About Bees
The bees that produce our Community Fair Trade honey are wild; they choose to colonise the hive and thenmove onto a new home after harvesting. In contrast, standard commercial beekeeping is closer to factory farming, with bees living in the same hive year after year. Their diets may be may subsidised with sugar to make the honey sweeter. This method of farming often requires the heavy use of veterinary medicine to treat the illnesses that result from dense hives.
Ensuring Exceptional Quality
We work with the highly skilled Beza Mar beekeepers who practise ‘barefoot beekeeping’ or ‘bee whispering’.They work in harmony with the bees’ natural cycles using traditional techniques that have been passed downfrom generation to generation. These methods support the sustainable use of the Sheka rainforest and also meanwe can be assured of fir st-class honey for use in our products.
You Won’t Bee-lieve It!
You might think The Body Shop® puts a lot of effort into creating the amazing Honeymania™ range… but it’s not nearly as much work as the bees put in! To gather enough honey to make one of every product in our
Honeymania™ collection, it takes almost 100 bees travelling over 2,100km so they can harvest the nectar from nearly 50,000 flowers!* Don’t worry, the bees don’t miss the honey that we use. A strong bee colony can produce two to three times more honey than bees need! *exact figures: 95 bees, 2184 km, 48540 flowers
Step 1: The hives are handcrafted from sustainable forest materials such as grass, bamboo and wood.
Step 2: Groups of beekeepers go into the forest for up to 15 days at a time to hang the hives. This involves climbing the trees using a rope made of vines – a specialist practice that requires strength,
skill and knowledge of the trees.
Step 3: The bees are left undisturbed to make their honey. The rainforest flowers provide the nectar and, in return, the bees pollinate the flowers, so they continue to reproduce and multiply.
Step 4: After four or five months, the beekeeper returns to his hives & collects the honeycombs from the trees, sometimes using a few clouds of smoke to gently drive the bees to the other end of the hive. Only the ripest, richest combs are selected for The Body Shop®.
