Melvita is one of the world’s largest certified organic beauty brands. Founded by natural and organic beauty-pioneer, Bernard Chevilliat in 1983 in the South of France Melvita offers beauty care top-to-toe. Bernard was a bee-keeper and biologist who left the city and moved to the Ardeche to settle in the middle of one of the purest and unspoilt landscapes in France.
Made using over 900 organic ingredients, the brand harnesses the power of plant oils, floral waters and honeys to create gentle and effective skin, body and personal care products certified organic by EcoCert and supported by Cosmebio. The products contain a minimum of 95% natural ingredients and are created by a 25-strong Research and Development team using cutting-edge green-science. New patented complexes, such as the 3-Honey Complex and the White Flowers Complex deliver measurable results on the skin, and most recently the team pioneered the application of UHT technology in beauty-care resulting in a 100% preservative-free formula.
All Melvita products exclude all ingredients of petrochemical origin such as paraffin and silicone, ethoxylated or glycolated products (PEGs), and preservatives including formaldehyde generators, parabens and even phenoxyethanol.
Made sustainably in an Eco-Factory with some of the highest possible standards of ethical manufacturing and certified with the ISO 14001 standard the site has everything from solar-voltaic panels to provide sustainable energy for power and water heating, to a living ‘green' roof helping the building blend into the natural landscape: proof that, even on an industrial scale, we can still work together to look after the planet. Furthermore the brand created the Melvita Foundation, independently governed, to donate funds to charitable projects world-wide that a support bee populations and habitats, including working with Friends of the Earth in the UK on their Bee Cause Campaign.
