An Interview with Zoe Bee Beauty!

4I am the creator of Zoe Bee Beauty. My mission?…

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body and it readily absorbs many of the things it comes in contact with, whether bad or good? This is why some drugs can be administered via a patch! It takes a mere 26 seconds for your skin to absorb an applied substance. It is pretty hard to find a commercial skin care product that is devoid of harmful chemicals these days.

Thankfully, this is where I can help.

I have always been a maker at heart. Even when I was a little girl, making things always brought me joy. I also chose to become vegetarian. I adored animals. As an adult, I find an extreme amount of happiness from not only making things but creating good things for my body, home and family.

My friends and family always came to me for advice regarding issues with their skin or their hair. They knew how I loved to treat my ailments naturally. I was always whipping up potions. My mum often laughed because when I was a teenager, if I had a spot on my face, I’d disappear into the bathroom for an hour with one of my potions and come out spot free!

The idea occurred to me one day to start a Facebook page and offer free beauty tips and advice. It has been running since 2012, I’ve received wonderful feedback. I was often asked if I could make a product that would help a particular beauty dilemma. Eventually, I decided to give it a go.

After I had my baby boy in 2014, I brought him up as a vegan. That’s when I decided to take the extra step and make my entire beauty product range 100% raw, natural, vegan and healthy. Because of this, my little boy Alexander has never had any skin issues, not even nappy rash.

Everything is connected. When I eat well, exercise and use natural beauty products, I look and feel so much better as a whole. I believe there is no point looking great on the outside, but applying unhealthy beauty products and eating unhealthy food. It’s equivalent to keeping a car clean on the outside and never changing the oil. No matter how nice the exterior is, it’s all going to break down on you at some point!
