Hipbees began as a family business. Clayton and Jill handcrafted every batch of their skincare products and sold them at farmer's markets.
Honey farming taught them a lot about the benefits of both raw unpasteurized honey and beeswax. Hipbees started with Jill making a non-stinging lip balm for her sweet boy, Robbee, that would solve his persistent chapped lip predicament. While finishing her yoga instructor training, Jill put the other aspiring yogis to work, testing her multiple balm formulas, finally settling on the one solved the issue.
After Robee's bespoke lip balm was developed, Jill set about solving other skin issues for her friends; moody skin on the face and body, dry hands and many others. Each product began life as a custom designed skin care solution for someone she knew. Usually with the help of a loving friend.
Thus, a mission was born: to promote self-care as a means to an end, not an end in itself. At Hipbees, we are doing our part to help the industry shift from an overly self-indulgent culture and move from using self-care practices based on only end goals. We know that completely taking care of yourself 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 keep giving if the resevoir is replenished. We believe in promoting self-care routines that help you replenish your source of light.
Our mission to simplify your skincare routine and bring practical, effective solutions to your moody skin, is based in the belief that feeling beautiful in your own skin is a right, not a privilege.
To bring her products to the world, Jill has partnered with Volero Brands. Now, her team is bigger, and Hipbees is ready to come back with a refreshed look and renewed energy. At Hipbees, we still make natural personal-care products, designed for moody skin.
We kept the formulas and the way we handcraft all the products, with LOVE.
Jill is still running the show and Hipbees still loves hearing from people, so please, don't be a stranger. Let us know what you think, and tell us what we can make to help your body feel better :)
