Handmade, natural skincare featuring bee propolis.
At Simply Bee we are just like you. We want to feed our skin with the best quality natural products. So we’ve created a handmade, natural skincare range we know you’ll love using nature’s precious and luxurious Bee Propolis - nectar for the skin. We blended Propolis gently and carefully with beeswax, honey and various essential oils. Nature’s very own antiseptic and preservative, Propolis is a natural source of anti-oxidants such as flavonoids and has been used as a beauty treatment for thousands of years to purify, heal and smooth the skin and to help treat skin ailments such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and age spots. We use the minimum processing possible and responsibly source our ingredients to ensure only the most natural products.
Our ingredients are made by happy, healthy bees foraging in one of the world's most diverse floral kingdoms -the Cape Fynbos Kingdom- in a nature reserve far from commercial agriculture and enjoying long hours of bright sunshine. None of our products are tested on animals and our hives are badger friendly. Our products are free from parabens, petrochemicals, PEGs, sulfates, artificial colorants and fragrances.
Simply Bee is a family business growing organically from 40 years of beekeeping experience in Hopefield – a small town outside Cape Town, South Africa. In 2013 we started importing Simply Bee to the UK from South Africa through Natural Trade Limited - who are as passionate about our products as we are. Natural Trade Limited was set up by a team of friends and family united by their commitment to support small South African natural and organic cosmetic producers to sell their products in the UK. Natural Trade’s management team consists of Geoff & Tersia Starke and close friend and partner Nicola Lloyd in the UK. Nicola is responsible for all our UK customers from the ground up! Tersia sources the best all natural products that she can find while Geoff looks after importing, business systems and accounts. Together we bring over 60 years experience in business and sales. Our mission is to bring you exceptional products and outrageous customer service.
We are very proud that in our first year of trading in the UK, our Propolis Serum was voted a finalist Best New Beauty & Spa Product at the Natural & Organic Awards 2014. In addition our Propolis Serum, Anti Ageing Cream and Heel Balm have been commended by the Free From SkinCare Awards.
