FROM Bernard CHEVILLIAT,founder of Melvita


« As a biologist and beekeeper I was fascinated by traditional wisdom and knowledge about nature and beauty. I founded MELVITA in 1983, with reference to life and honey, that extraordinary product of flowers that sits at the confluence between the plant and the animal worlds.

Faced with the combined assaults of industrial chemistry and parasites, the world of bees was already, in my eyes, a reminder of the wider world’s increasing fragility, because a world without bees would be a world without flowers, fruit, beauty… This was why, from the outset, I wanted to place “nature at heart” in all that we do: in our approach to beauty and skincare and of our ecological and humanistic concerns.

MELVITA is a pioneer in organic beauty and has grown to become one of France’s leading brands of natural and organic cosmetics. Resolutely organic. Because we are convinced that an organic commitment is one of the keys to the future of the planet.

In addition to effectiveness and pleasure of use, I hope you will find here the authenticity, the ethical approach and, above all, the passion that makes us so different today! »
