What about the rest of your home and lifestyle?
Beeplenish - providing 100% natural yet effective polishes for your favourite home and lifestyle things.
In recent years awareness of the health and environmental issues from chemicals has improved and it is now a trend to look at one's complete way of living, food, skincare, and home and lifestyle. There is an abundance of healthy eating information and healthy food options these days. Likewise there are now good options for natural and chemical free skincare.
However when it comes to the home most people are still using toxic and petroleum and chemical laden products. This is not good for both people's health and the environment. While there are some notable and good natural products available for certain aspects of home life (eg Ecover range), many other areas of caring for home items are short of non-toxic and sustainable options. Adding small amounts of Lavender or Aloe or other good natural ingredient (even beeswax) may look appealing on the label, but doesn't really change things if the remainder of the product includes petroleum and chemical ingredients.
Introducing the new Beeplenish natural beeswax polishes.
The 100% natural Beeplenish beeswax range is non-toxic and safe for your home and family.
Beeplenish waxes contain no turpentine, silicon wax, neuro-toxic petroleum distillates, naptha, synthetic dyes, polpylene glycol or petroleum solvents, parabens, artificial fragrances or any other harmful chemical preservatives.
Beeplenish beeswax polishes contain natural vitamin E and a premium blend of natural plant oils, sustainably sourced beeswax, carnauba wax and manuka honey.
To replenish your natural wood or leather, Beeplenish is naturally antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiviral containing 100% pure gold certified essential plant oils of Sweet Orange, Manuka, Lemon, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus.
Beepenish is 100% pure and natural so it will not irritate your skin or cause any serious health problems. Easy to apply, you can use your hands without fear of harshness or toxicity to your skin (with many users reporting that there hands feel softer afterwards).
With concern for the environment and the movement away from synthetic products, Beeplenish is a natural choice when you require products based on traditional recipes using only pure and natural ingredients, tried and tested over generations.
Every ingredient is renewable, biodegradable and earth-friendly.
Having beeswax as a base has the added benefit of it spreading well, so that a pot does last. While there are other products available that may make use of beeswax, most of these are still mixed with various other non-natural ingredients and use a much lower amount of beeswax.
Using a good quality natural wax or polish on your furniture and other items provides them with proper care and extends their life. Particularly relevant in current economic times, you can replenish rather than replace.
Soft launching in the UK with an initial range of products to replenish and care for wooden furniture, leather, and your favourite leather shoes.

Some Product Summaries:
Beeplenish Natural Beeswax Furniture Polish & Preserver With Orange & Lemon
Beeplenish is simple and solvent free. Regular use of this polish will create a beautiful and protective finish. It will also bring back the beauty of the wood on neglected pieces. Regular use brings out the fine patina of the wood and gives it a silky finish with a gorgeous lingering smell of pure beeswax, honey, orange and lemon. Perfect for replenishing any distressed wood. Beeswax has been used for centuries to preserve finishes and paintings. On furniture, beeswax naturally puts a barrier coat to protect and repel water and enliven the existing finish. There is NO neurotoxic petroleum by-products, no solvents, turps and no artificial fragrances. Using only pure virgin plant oils, unrefined beeswax, carnauba wax and 100% pure essential oils of sweet orange and lemon.
Beeplenish Finisher's Formula For Antiques & Restoration
Manuka oil is anti-microbial and highly effective against bacteria, fungi, yeast and mould, naturally ensuring eating areas are free from microscopic bacteria and fungal colonies which may occur in wood. This is a perfect choice for restoring antique dining tables, recently sanded raw wood surfaces, or for use on antique kitchen surfaces in older homes with out using any nasty and highly toxic synthetic chemicals. Beeplenish Finisher's Formula is food grade, so it can also be used for wood turners and burnishing projects. The base of beeswax and carnauba wax will also add a natural barrier protective coating, to protect and nourish your treasured furniture for life.
Beeplenish Natural Beeswax Leather Polish & Conditioner With Tea Tree & Eucalyptus
While commercial silicones may indeed give your leather that quick lustrous sheen and make it look brand new, it does nothing to keep moisture out or protect your leather long term. Synthetic sprays or chemical polishes will eventually destroy your leather. Commercial leather conditioners can also contain a dangerous cocktail of neurotoxic and harmful chemical ingredients that will also be absorbed in the home environment. When applied to leather, Beeplenish deeply penetrates the surface, coating each individual fibre with a balanced application of pure natural oils, feeding the leather and making the leather much softer, providing a soft satin finish. the wax revives older leathers that have become very hard, brittle and dried out. Tea Tree and Eucalyptus oils prevent stitching from breaking down and prevents mould and mildew on leather. Note, not for use on suede.
