Nourish your skin and soul
PAGOSA SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- 1.1 billion people worldwide go without clean water supplies; another 1.5 billion don't have adequate sanitation facilities.
WaterAid, an organization giving the world's poorest people access to safe water and sanitation, heads one of the largest water projects worldwide. Ghana, Africa, is an area WaterAid recognizes as a country of particular need:
-- Ghana's northern regions are acutely deprived, with one in ten children
dying before their fifth birthday.
-- Inadequate water supply and sanitation services contribute to over 70%
of diseases experienced.
-- 44% of the rural population has access to safe water -- 11% have access
to sanitation facilities.
Projects financed in Ghana include building community pump wells and ventilated latrines, and facilitating good hygiene education.
Queen Bee Sauce sources their fabulous raw shea butter from a U.S company teaching sustainable farming and eco-friendly practices to women of Northern Ghana, thus feels a particular connection to the Nasia Village in Northern Ghana, where their shea is made.
Raw shea butter, a thickened oil extracted from the nut of the Shea tree, is an extremely versatile product containing both carotene and alantoin for excellent moisturizing, anti-aging and healing. With enormous potential to treat almost anything that ails the skin, raw shea butter's common uses include:
-- Dry or rough skin
-- Visible signs of aging
-- Peeling after tanning
-- Tattoo hydration
-- Skin cracks
-- Wound healing time
-- Insect bites
-- Chapped lips
-- Diaper rash
This holiday season, Queen Bee is giving back to the African community from which their raw shea is procured. Queen Bee will donate $1 from every Tub O' Raw Shea sold ($26.00, 4oz tub of 100% unrefined shea butter) to WaterAid, with a goal of donating $10,000.00 by January, 2008.
Queen Bee Sauce offers simple, natural skin care products to health-conscious consumers. The Queen Bee motto 'Made with Love' represents the philosophy of founder Lynne Killey that "each bottle or jar of product is made with attention to quality of ingredients, harmony with nature and care for the person who will be using the product."
