France's Leading Organic Beauty Brand 'Melvita' Makes US Debut
Founded in France in 1983 by beekeeper and biologist Bernard Chevilliat, organic beauty brand, Melvita suitably means "honey and life" in Latin. Made with ingredients derived from nature: sunflower, green tree extract, the royal jelly of honey bees, lime tree sap, etc., the Melvita collection boasts the ECOCERT certification, for making products that are 100% organic and for holding social and ecological values in the highest regard during their manufacturing process.
November 4, 2009 Melvita products will be available for purchase in the US via their website, followed by the opening of their first retail store in San Francisco in January 2010. With the tagline "Nature at Heart" the brand has truly blossomed from its humble beginnings as a bee farm. Featuring collections of organic products in ranges including floral waters, plant oils, Bio Excellence, Essentials and Shea Butters, and a buzzworthy offering of Beehive products, Melvita has every corner of the home covered in the pure essence of nature, responsibly crafted and delivered.
I have had the privilege of using Melvita products and here are several of my favorites:
Extraordinary Day Cream literally brightened my complexion and contains antioxidants and natural age-defying ingredients including butterfly lavender, plum and apricot supremes and cranberry and raspberry flavonoids to name just a few. *The only thing I wish Melvita day cream had is an SPF factor! Then it would be perfect.
Moisturizing Body Milk has a subtle, clean and fresh scent and provides deep moisturizing while absorbing thoroughly and leaving no residue.
Micellar Water This toner with a refreshing rose scent left my skin feeling clean and detoxified. I have never had luck with toners due to the fact that many of them dry out my skin to such an extreme, but this toner worked beautifully and actually softens my skin.
Orange Blossom Floral Water is known for its soothing, softening and refreshing properties, and it does all of the above. You may either spritz it on your face to help set your make-up or use it as a toner by applying with a soaked cotton ball.
I highly recommend Melvita and I know their products will be staples in my personal beauty regimen for years to come.
