‘02 Alum Launches Sustainable Skincare Line
Spruce + Bee, a sustainable skincare line launched by Queen Bee and owner, Britt (King) Sanders ‘02 is the newest thing in sustainable beauty.
Last fall, Britt set out to create a line of simple, sustainable products as good for the skin as they are the earth. She handmakes products like lip balm, rose toner, salve, tub tea and Man Hands, a cracked skin balm for hands and feet. Britt has also created a non-aerosol dry shampoo with the sweet scent of coco and lavender.
“I have horrible skin, I have my whole life. I spent years making products for myself that really, honestly worked. I took out all the artificial stuff, chemicals and parabens and just started simple with things like shea butter, coconut oil and essential oils like sweet orange and lavender,” she says of her products. “I was so excited scale these products so I can share them with those who struggle with their skin and others who just want to treat themselves to rosemary lip balm, or toner that smells like a rose garden."
While Britt is busy hand-pouring salves and balms, her business is giving back. A portion of all sales are donated to Bee Public, an Indianapolis based organization working to educate the community on the importance of saving the honeybee population.
