Stonesfield Soap Company - Bumblebee Distinguendus


Please welcome ‘Bumblebee distinguendus’ (Bombus distinguendus) more commonly known as the Great Yellow bumblebee; we have tried to keep the colouring of this lovely bee as close to its natural colouring as possible.  The background colouring reflects the striations of Lewisian Gneiss, the igneous bedrock that forms outcrops in the areas where the bee lives.

As with our other bumblebee soaps, 20% of the sale price goes directly to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.  Thee Great Yellow bumblebee is one of our rarest bumblebees; once widespread across the UK, it is now restricted to just a few areas in the far north of the country, notably Orkney and the Outer Hebrides where its last stronghold is on the machair.

As well as our usual lashings of olive and sunflower oils, shea and cocoa butters, we have added beautiful organic golden jojoba oil and given the soap a lovely unisex earthy-citrus aroma, courtesy of bergamot, grapefruit, cypress and vetivert essential oils.  Additionally, Bumblebee Distinguendus is vegan-friendly

Saponified olive oil and coconut oil, water, glycerine, saponified sunflower oil, saponified shea butter, saponified castor oil, jojoba oil and cocoa butter, cypress, bergamot, grapefruit and vetiver essential oils,  sugar, french pink clay, french yellow clay, kaolin clay, charcoal, mica, (limonene and linalool – natural components of essential oils)

Nature-identical colours: titanium dioxide, yellow iron oxide

Please note: as this is a handmade product there will be variations between individual bars; the product images displayed are only examples of the design although the overall theme will be the same.  Generally speaking, no two bars are exactly the same and may have slightly different dimensions owing to their hand-cut nature
