Our Favorite Artisans Are Coming With Us to Geneva!

We are thrilled to carry products from artisans who share our hypervigilance and understanding of what we consume, inhale, and use in our daily lives is especially crucial for those with allergies and/or autoimmune conditions. Unlike big box candles, we are gluten-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, vegan and soon 100% soy-free rather than a limited selection. Our collaboration with these small businesses means that we can bring you an even wider selection of non-toxic, natural, handcrafted personal care products.

Allow me to introduce to you who we will be carrying in our Geneva, IL shop

Simply Kirious Soaps, Batavia, IL

We first met Kira of Simply Krious Soaps when we were a vendor at The Batavia Boardwalk Shops Pop-Up Shop in the 2023 season. We quickly learned that she was as passionate about the craft of providing her family & community with healthier skin care options as we were for educating everyone we meet about non-toxic candles and the importance of using clean wax and non-toxic oil choices.

Crafting all-natural soap and bath products, using ingredients like coconut oil, rice bran oil, olive oil, avocado oil, shea butter, castor oil, paraben-free and phthalate-free fragrance oil, Kira of Simply Kirious Soaps discovered her passion for creating artful gifts. Now, she is expanding her product line, and we are eager to bring her bar soap and beard care products with us to Bee Coco Candle in Geneva!

Try her products for yourself. Your body will thank you!

The Noble Soapery, Bartlett, IL

Passionate about soap making, The Noble Soapery in Bartlett, IL was born from a need for gentle products for sensitive skin due to the founders long list of allergies and eczema. With a second child on the way, they were horrified by the harmful chemicals in traditional soaps. This led to the creation of natural, creamy lathering soaps that cleanse without drying.

They take pride in being open and honest with their customers about what's in their soaps, and work with local suppliers to ensure they know where their raw materials come from. With their oils and fragrances, they try to use as local a source as possible. The Noble Soapery uses RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) palm oil instead of animal products for a long lasting soap. Olive and coconut oils are unfortunately not native to Illinois, but they work with a woman owned company out of Des Plaines, IL to source them. 

The Noble Soapery strives to keep plastic out of the environment as much as possible by utilizing recyclable materials whenever feasible. We are proud to announce we will be their first liquid soap refill station! You can bring us your own empty bottle or their beautiful amber bottle, we will weigh it and fill it while you wait!

We can't wait for you to get bubbly with The Noble Soapery.
