06/17 12-4pm Cire D'abeille SkinCare Pop Up Shop

Little Button Craft will host a unique pop-up event featuring local Fairport based maker Ashley Monney on Saturday June 17th, from 12-4 pm.

Cire d'Abeille Skin Care Products started as a DYI by Ashley Monney in May 2016. She wanted to create a lip balm that was free of parabens, artificial colors, and chemicals. Her lip balms contain naturally based ingredients. Cire d'Abeille has been recognized by the Coalition for Consumer Information (Leaping Bunny) as cruelty-free. Her products have never, nor will ever, be tested on animals.

After her friends, co-workers and family tried the prototype of lip balm, they encouraged her to make more and start selling them at local businesses. Monney partners with local businesses by using their products in her lip balms. She uses beeswax and honey from local Upstate NY beekeepers. Monney works with Union Place Coffee Roasters, Black Button Distilling, Casa Larga Winery, The Winery at Marjim Manor,Belhurst Castle and Winery, Deer Run Winery, 810 Meadworks, OSB Ciderworks, Dolce Cupcakery, The Waffle Factory as well as other wineries from western upstate New York.

Cire d'Abeille Skin Care products has branched out from lip balms, to also produce sugar scrubs, body lotions, and salt soaks.
