Hipbees began as a family business, run by Jill and Clayton, who handcrafted every batch of products and sold them at farmer's markets. They both spent a lot of 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 honey-based, non-stinging lip balm. 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.
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 on from using self-care practices that are merely based on end goals. 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.
Our 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.
