Honey & Life


Did you know? Melvita means Honey (MEL) and Life (VITA) in Latin

Melvita started from a passion for bees and their invaluable role as sentinels of nature. Bees are facing a major environmental crisis with colonies declining year on year due the increasing usage of insecticides, of uncontrolled urbanisation or pollution.

Today, Melvita does its share by:

  • Supporting organic agriculture throughout the world by formulating beauty products with organic ingredients.
  • Raising awareness of the bee crisis.
  • Using organic Honey, organic Royal Jelly, Pollen and Propolis not only for their cosmetic properties but also to promote this agriculture. 
Bernard Chevilliat, Beekeeper and Biologist

"because a world without bees would be a world without flowers, fruit, beauty..."

Bernard Chevilliat, Founder of Melvita 


Honey bees form nectar into honey by regurgitating and storing it as a food source in wax honeycombs inside the beehive. Melvita only uses the excess honey so as not to endanger the bee colony.
