Hey everyone! How's it going? I'm testing out a brand that's new to me called Silk Bee. It's a brand that makes moisturizers for the face, body, feet, eyes, and lips. The company prides itself on the use of natural ingredients. I love getting the chance to interact with company leaders, really getting "inside" the brand and passing along their information straight to my readers/viewers. That's part of what's so fun about makeup- so many different brands to learn about and enjoy! You can expect a full video review form me on the the Silk Bee line in the days to come, but first- learn more about the brand in this exclusive Q & A.

Thanks to Omar with Silk Bee for taking the time to answer my questions!

1. What makes Silk Bee different from other brands?
Silk Bee stands out not only for its top quality and service, but also for its unique approach to skincare. We begin in the natural world. Instead of relying on mineral oil and glycerin for the base ingredients, at Silk Bee, we turn to luscious green plants for the basis. These green ingredients provide a rich source of vitamins to naturally nourish the skin. Also, unlike many other companies that outsource production into factories that manufacture in mass quantities, Silk Bee products are handmade in the U.S.A. We create each product from scratch in small batches, and proudly send fresh to clients all across the globe. Our products are fragrance-free, and suitable for all skin-types, even the most sensitive.

2. What's the difference between the Classic Silk and Elan Vital formulations? (the two versions of almost every Silk Bee product) What skin types are best for each one?
The fundamental difference between Classic Silk and Elan Vital lies in their inherently different formulations. The balance of the ingredients in each product line varies, and the Elan Vital formulations are enhanced with additional ingredients for further moisturizing benefits. In general, the Classic silk formulations are best for normal to oily skin, whereas Elan Vital is better suited for dry skin types.

3. Where are your products made?
Silk Bee products are made in the USA on the outskirts of the nation's capitol under controlled, rigorous, and sanitary conditions.

4. A lot of natural products are used- why is this so important?
At Silk Bee, we proudly derive our most important ingredients from the natural world. These all natural extracts represent the timelessly proven harmony of humanity. As we accept nature’s gifts and use them to protect, improve, and moisturize our skin, we begin to play our part in also protecting our surroundings. In addition to working gently to provide powerful skincare benefits, our natural formulations work well with multiple skin types, and ultimately are much friendlier to the environment. Natural ingredients mark a new way forward —one that also embraces the traditional balance of the past.

5. Your products are unscented- will you ever come out with scented products or will this be the extent of the brand?
Our formulators at Silk Bee are currently looking into developing scented products, while maintaining our commitment to using all natural ingredients. We are focusing on essential oils, which provide not only pleasing scents, but also powerful skincare benefits. As we expand and develop further product lines, we envision a panorama of Silk Bee products in both scented and unscented versions.

6. What are your most popular products?
Our customers continually return for refills on all our products. So far, the Classic Silk Face Cream and Elan Vital Lip Balm seem to be the most popular.
Thanks again, Omar! And thanks to all the readers for stopping by my blog. Again- look for a video review on this brand soon! :D Have a great day everyone,
Emily
