Our Story of Bees & Natural Skincare 


   

       

Honey Bee Beautiful is a sustainable honey skincare business that was created to share the amazing power of honey to heal, particularly for problem skins such as those prone to eczema, psoriasis, rosacea & acne, offering a natural solution for glowing skin for those who care about the environment.

Spreading the word as to how amazing and important these little creatures are is a very important part of the business.  We are committed to supporting and sustaining our local honey bee population and for every £1 you spend, 1p gets donated to the awesome Bumble Bee Conservation Trust.

'What a fantastic company! Beautiful, ethical, natural products. Wonderful eco packaging with tonnes of product information included and a personal touch of handwritten note and flower buds making it even more extra special than I knew it already was! Thank you Cath and the bees xxx '

My name is Catherine  Clark.  I grew up in a small village in the Welsh countryside with home grown food and a sustainable style of living at it's heart where nothing was ever wasted.  As a result I had a close connection with nature, animals and the natural world.  Having a life long  passion for this along with natural therapies and natural health, it was a given, that, when inspired by my Dad to start keeping bees, I was inspired to not only learn more about our amazing bees but also to share these precious resources and create my own range of natural skincare now having access to the healing power of raw honey and pure beeswax.   

So, after a 20 year career in law, I gave up my life of commuting and office life for a more relaxed lifestyle and a return to country living and Honey Bee Beautiful was born. I now live on a farm in the rolling hills of Monmouthshire surrounded by my menagerie of chickens, dogs, cats and of course the bees.

At HBB, we only use ‘Raw Welsh Honey'. 'Raw' honey is not heated to high temperatures or micro filtered, thereby retaining all of it's natural vitamins, enzymes and pollens to help nourish and heal the skin.  Because we use ‘raw’ honey, on occasion, the honey can crystallise causing small lumps to form.  The quality of the product is not effected, however, if you want to remove the crystals you can by simply warming the product with gentle heat.

We also only use 'Beeswax Cappings'. The cappings are the wax made and used by the bees to seal the honey comb containing honey stores. It’s the purest form of beeswax with no possible chemical residue which might be present in other beeswax where the bees have needed treatment for disease.

The last product from the hive that we use is 'Propolis' which is used by bees to sterilise their hives. It’s made from buds and sap of trees and is a potent antiseptic and natural anti-inflammatory. It also contains minerals like magnesium and zinc which help skin regenerate.

Both honey and beeswax attract moisture and lock it in and the beeswax acts as natural breathable barrier protecting the skin from damaging environmental factors such as sunlight, pollution, harsh weather and moisture loss.

We also only use 'Pure Essential Oils' rather than synthetic fragrances which mean that you get the added therapeutic properties to our products which help to relax, uplift, and soothe the senses!

Honey Bee Beautiful have featured on the internationally successful BBC2 series, Escape to the Country, where you can see me beekeeping and making natural products from the hive. Read all about it in our blog HERE.
