As a mother of four, using natural products whenever possible is very important to me. Using products made from natural organic ingredients for my family is extremely important to me and finding products for myself that are all natural is an added bonus. Finding a company whose commitment to organic and natural ingredients is always refreshing and one such company that I recently had the pleasure of learning about is Melvita!
MELVITA is a company that was founded on one mans love of the French countryside and his passion for beekeeping.
From the Melvita website:
In 1977, Bernard Chevilliat, Biologist and lover of the open countryside, moved to the Ardèche. Located in South-central France, it is named after the Ardèche river, and is known for its wide-open spaces, limestone cliffs, and stone arches. Soon after arriving, beekeeping became his main passion. With help from his Wife and Brother, they grew this hobby to over five hundred hives, on an isolated farm in the middle of the countryside.
In 1983, they founded MELVITA and developed their first natural organic beauty product based on ingredients from the hive. Starting with Melvita’s famous hexagonal soap, they moved on to shampoo, milks and creams, floral waters, plant oils, etc.
In 2002, Melvita was one of the first companies in the world to earn the ECOCERT certificate for organic products. Becoming the global trend-setter for natural organic beauty products.
Today, Melvita has over 250 employees, is available in over 20 countries, and is the number one certified organic beauty brand in France. Having previously served as Chairman, Bernard Chevilliat is now Vice-chairman of the COSMEBIO Inter-professional Association.

I’ve been a fan of organic skin care products for some time now, I feel that the products are better made with an attention to detail and quality that most national brands don’t seem to have. I love knowing that I’m using a product that is all natural and organic, with ingredients that I can actually pronounce…that goes a long way in making me feel good about what I’m putting on my skin! Melvita has a whole line of natural organic skin care products, from organic sunscreen and baby care items to beehive products and even all natural organic products for the man in your life! My mom always swore by honey and it’s ability to give you amazing skin, I suppose she was really on to something!
I’ve heard for years now how effective oils can be for skin care, but never realized that there were so many natural oils that did amazing things for the skin, until I checked out Melvita. One such oil is one of Melvita’s best sellers, organic argan oil. “Indigenous to the Moroccan forest, Argan tree kernals have been harvested for centuries for their many miraculous benefits. Rich in Vitamin E, this oil is ideal in protecting skin and hair from premature aging, UV exposure, and other environmental factors. A true regenerator, Argan Oil is often used as a moisturizer for dry skin and to smooth dry, damaged hair.” I don’t know about you, but anything that helps promote young, healthy looking skin and hair is definitely worth looking into!
Of course, Melvita has many more natural and organic products to help you maintain healthy, beautiful skin and hair. If you’re as committed to using natural organic products as I am then I definitely recommend that you check out Melvita…you’ll be so glad that you did!
