Liesa Helfen and Michael Sedlacek parlayed their passion for bees into a line of handcrafted lotions and balms made from raw honey, beeswax and other natural ingredients. The two hive enthusiasts founded Worker B after Liesa noticed how soft her hands were when she worked with beeswax. Local bee farms supply all the honey and propolis (a powerful antibiotic/antifungal agent that sanitizes the interior of the hive), so that Liesa and Michael can ensure it comes from chemical-free hives.
There are no fillers in Worker B’s skincare products. The ingredients from the hive -- honey, beeswax and propolis tincture -- provide natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities, complemented by almond oil, olive oil, avocado oil, and essential oils such as chamomile, rosemary, lavender and bergamot. The Rescue Putty is Worker B’s strongest and thickest formula, intended for severely dry or damaged skin. Liesa and Michael also offer creams, lotions (scented and unscented), and their signature Lotion Bar, which looks like a bar of soap and incorporates loads of propolis to create an overall body conditioner that you can rub on all your dry spots.
Our skin takes a beating every day, and Worker B helps us fight back with highly concentrated, naturally healing skincare products, straight from the hive.
