Our Credentials (Why Buy From Us)

Welcome to the HBB Family

We know that when trying a new brand it can feel like a leap of faith: will it work, will it be a waste of money and is it worth the investment?

If you are unsure about whether to take that leap of faith, read on and we will hopefully answer all of your queries.

Will our products work for you?

The most important thing to know is whether the products will work for you and your skin. 

This is why we have created sample sizes of our entire range so that you and your skin can try before committing to the price of a full size product.

We have also collated tester feedback, product reviews and testimonials from our 'bee-utiful' customers so that you can spend time getting to know our range and how they perform.

Reading experiences from real life people who have similar challenges and concerns with their skin and hearing about the relief that they have experienced, can help to provide the reassurance and information that you need before taking that leap of faith so please do go ahead and scroll to the bottom of each product page and read through these testimonials and reviews. 

Also, did you know that we have a full money back guarantee if you find that your skin does not get on well with your new HBB product?

Are our ingredients natural? 

The next most popular concern is whether the ingredients really are natural and whether your skin will react to them? 

This business was founded on the principles of simple, natural and effective so you can rest assured that every product we make has that as its basis.  We are completely transparent about what goes into our products and each product page lists the ingredients in plain English, making for easy understanding. 

If you are unsure of anything or wish to obtain specific advice on a product for your skin type, simply email us at info@honeybeebeautiful.co.uk and we will get back to you with your personally tailored recommendations. 

Why do we charge what we do?

Then there is the price!  Why do we charge what we do and is it worth the investment?  Get ready as this is a long but hopefully very useful answer. 

Hand Formulated 

All of your honey goodies are lovingly hand made in small batches to ensure that when you receive your package they are at their optimum scent and freshness. We are not a factory with machines to do our making in bulk (nor do we want to be), nor are we a homecraft business with little or no overheads.

Premium ingredients

Your products are made from pure natural ingredients which come at a premium, such as our raw Welsh honey and pure UK beeswax cappings (the purest beeswax from the hive). We choose these ingredients as not only do they help you support our Welsh and UK bees but they deliver on performance for your skin every time.

Sustainable & plastic free

Helping you to 'bee' as green as possible is very important to us so we do not sell or pack in plastic -  you can be sure that your HBB containers will never need end up bobbing about in the sea causing a hazard to our precious marine life.  

Every product is either a zero waste product or contained in recyclable or reusable card, glass or tin.  The way we send your orders also helps you to be plastic free - we use recycled paper, tape, jiffy bags, boxes and eco bubble wrap.  Point of sale leaflets, cards and paper are recycled and even what we clean with and wear in the lab are reusable or biodegradable including our cloths, hair caps, lab coats, gloves, bin bags and cleaning products so you can be sure that each purchase really helps reduce pollution of our environment. 

This all comes at a cost but is something that we know is very important to you.

'Bee Green' Return & Reuse Scheme

To help you reduce waste and the energy needed for recycling, and the transportation and manufacturing of new containers, we also operate a freepost 'Bee Green Return & Reuse Scheme' for all of your glass and tin ware. 

Again, this does come at a cost, including the free post service, along with the time it takes to prepare and sterilise the returned containers for reuse, but, again, we know this is something that you care about.

Supporting Bees!

Your purchase supports bees with every purchase.  We only use local raw honey and other products from the hive where the welfare of our 'bee-utiful' bees has been put first.  We personally know every beekeeper who supports HBB, we know how they care for and love their bees and that they always prioritise the welfare of the bees over anything else. 

We also spend time sharing information and education about how to help our bees so that many more can join the movement to #sharethebeelove and #saveourbees! 

Cruelty Free

Loving nature and animals is something that runs through your core and we share that passion.  We love and care for all of nature, including our beautiful bees, and try to work in harmony with it in every action we take. 

Animal cruelty is probably the thing that angers you the most.  We care deeply about all animals and would never entertain any kind of cruelty, mistreatment or testing on them.  In fact, we are proud to say that some of our most loyal customers are vegans who have taken the decision to buy based on how we love and care for our bees.

Trust in a small and independent Welsh brand

We know that supporting small, UK based businesses is important to you and we can confirm that we definitely fit that bill!  We are two nature loving ladies who are passionate about formulating raw honey skincare in the rolling hills of Monmouthshire in South East Wales.  We love our customers like members of our own family and know how important it is to feel supported, included and listened to. 

To become involved in our family and keep up to date with what we have been getting up to -  including new products launches, health and wellbeing tips, honey recipes, garden advice, the latest in everything skincare and much more - 
'bee' sure to sign up for our weekly emails. 

We hope that this has helped to ease any doubts you may have but if you have any further queries please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are always happy to help however we can.
Also, if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve, please do not hesitate to get in touch and share with us; we are only here because of you and any suggestions of  improvements in what we do for you is what we want to know about.

Much love and Welsh cwtches, 
Cath, Bec and the bees
