Editors Notes

Inspired by a passion for bees and named after the Latin for “honey” (mel) and “life” (vita) certified organic skincare brand Melvita was established in 1983 by French beekeeper and biologist Bernard Chevilliat.

After moving to a farm in the Ardèche which had beehives, Bernard became interested in beekeeping and the significant role that bees play in nature. Together with his wife and brother, they developed their own natural and organic range, with their first product being a hexagonal soap made from honey from their hives.

With an ethical and sustainable approach to beauty, Melvita’s range is certified organic by ECOCERT and uses plants and products from the hives to create effective, innovative products that respect the environment.

Melvita's products are formulated without:

  • Paraffin
  • Silicone
  • PEG (polyethylene glycol) and PPG (polypropylene glycol)
  • Ethoxylated products
  • Parabens
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Formaldehyde or chlorine derivatives
  • Synthetic fragrances and colouring agents
  • Di-ethyl phthalate and nitromusk


By means of their Ecological and Organic Cosmetic standard, ECOCERT sets a compliance level superior to conventional regulations governing cosmetics, which guarantees respect for the environment in production, respect for the consumer and natural products of a superior ecological quality.

Q & As

Melvita Extra-Rich Hand Cream, 150ml 1 5 1 1
Disappointed! Unfortunately I never got to try the product. When I received the hand cream, which was excellently packaged, I opened the tube and squeezed and nothing came out. I tried again and nothing. All of a sudden, the cream spurted out at the other end and went all over my black jumper. There was a split in the tube (which certainly didn't happen in transit) so must have been in a faulty batch. I took it back to the store for a refund. So far my only disappointment with online ordering. 18 February 2014
