Our story

FROM LOCAL BEEHIVES TO SKINCARE BRAND

Read how the enthusiasm for skincare and the tradition of beekeeping intertwined in the story of Beesmetic honey skincare, as told by the brand’s co-founder, Rebeka Udvanc.

LOVE OF BEES IS IN THE GENES

The love of bees has been in our family for 4 generations, since my great-grandfather was a beekeeper.

MY ROLE MODEL AND INSPIRATION

My great-grandfather passed on his values to his daughter, my grandmother. She taught me to respect all living beings and nature, which later inspired the story of Beesmetic.

WHY IS BEEKEEPING IMPORTANT?

Bees are the main pollinators of plants, pollinating almost 80% of flowers. They are responsible for providing one third of the world’s food. But they are increasingly threatened by pesticide use, pollution, climate changes and diseases. That’s why beekeepers’ mission to protect the bees is so important.

BEESWAX OINTMENTS

Every summer during primary school, I spent holidays with my grandfather and grandmother. They taught me how to make marigold ointments with beeswax. I believe that is when the idea of using bee products for skincare was planted into my little head.

THE POWER OF BEE PRODUCTS

Did you know that honey was used by the ancient Egyptians to heal wounds? Cleopatra also used it in her skincare routine to keep her skin youthful and glowing. Honey has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, hydrates and nourishes the skin. Beeswax restores, protects and gives elasticity to the skin. Propolis is antimicrobial, reduces redness and stimulates collagen production.

BUZZING WITH IDEAS

Growing up, I struggled with itchy, dry skin every winter. In the attempts to solve my problems, I returned to my almost forgotten knowledge. I started making skincare from bee products and it help tremendously. I shared some samples with my friends who spread the world and as the demand was growing, so did my passion.

BUSY BEES

But, as they say, “Two Heads Are Better Than One.” That’s why I joined forces with my current business partner and great friend Maja. Together, we transformed honey, propolis and beeswax from local beehives into soothing skincare formulations.

PROMOTING BEEKEEPING

One of our missions from the beginning is to support local beekeepers and their efforts to preserve bees. We do that by buying the honey we use in Beesmetic products from them. We always prioritise the welfare of the bees and only work with beekeepers who are bee-friendly, responsible and only take surplus honey.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Product development started in our home kitchen, which soon became our laboratory. It always smelled of beeswax and plant extracts. In 2020 we moved the production to a professional laboratory in Slovenia, with the aim of ensuring the highest quality standards and offering people the best that natural cosmetics has to offer.

THE START OF BEESMETIC

After months of preparation, effort and challenges, we founded our company in 2019 and put our nourishing honey products on the virtual shelves of our online shop. And so, Beesmetic brand was born.

The solution for multiple skin problems is hiding in almost every kitchen. Hey honey, it’s time you give it a try!
