Our Story

ūüíõ¬†ROOTS

Hipbees began in 2011 with Jill and Clayton handcrafting every batch of products and selling them at farmer's markets. They had spent some time Honey farming, which taught them about the benefits of both raw unpasteurized honey and beeswax. 

Their very first product was inspired by their son Robbee, who persistently struggled with chapped lips. Jill created a solution - a bee's wax-based, non-stinging lip balm. In 2011, while completing her yoga instructor training, Jill put the other aspiring yogis to work by giving them various balm formulas to test. Finally, Jill was able to find the winning formula, which solved Robbee's problem.

After Robbee's bespoke lip balm was developed, Jill set about solving other skin issues for her friends such as moody skin on the face and body, dry hands and many others. Each product began its life as a custom designed skin care solution for someone she knew. 

ūüíõOUR MISSION

Thus, a mission was born: to promote self-care as a means to an end, not an end in itself.  We know that completely taking care of yourself is the path to showing up as the best version of yourself. Every day.

Humans are vessels of love and care. Giving is in our nature, but you can only give if the reservoir is replenished. We believe in promoting self-care routines that help you replenish your source of light.

Hipbees's mission is to simplify your skincare routine and bring practical and effective solutions to your moody skin. This is based on the belief that feeling beautiful in your own skin is a right, not a privilege.

ūüíõFRIENDS & ADVENTURES

In 2018 Jill partnered with a company in British Columbia in order to share Hipbees with the world. Her travels took her to California, New York, and to BC many times. She learned a tonne and made some great new friends along the way.  As some plans tend to do....some unexpected twists and turns did not land things as intended. All is well that ends well, and has made for some great campfire stories (be sure to ask her about the vault of lavender weed ;).

ūüíõPRESENT DAY (2021)

Jill has officially parted ways with the crew in BC and is again running the show:)  Hipbees is still making natural personal-care products, designed for moody skin. We've preserved the formulas and the ways that we have always handcrafted LOVE into all the products.
