In the awards November series of blog posts, we get to know the brands behind the nominee products of the European Natural Beauty Awards 2023. In this post, we are proud to share more about the French natural cosmetics brand Melvita, as told by the brand:

It all started in Ardèche in 1983. In a unique region where spectacular nature has been preserved from all pollution. MEL for honey and VITA for life. Melvita is above all a story of passion. It was here, in 1983, that a passionate beekeeper decided to look for ways to reconnect the skin with the living world. He drew inspiration from bees (naturally), but also from flowers, fruits, trees, and the seasons. And he created skincare products made with active ingredients that replenish the skin, repair its natural mechanisms, and regenerate its very own ecosystem. 40 years ago, this was a revolution in the world of beauty. Nature and beauty had suddenly become one.

For the past 40 years, we have constantly been observing the wildness of nature, the energy of its ecosystems, its mutual-aid strategies, its resilience, its strength. When the time is right, we select the very best ingredients – organic, of course. And they are always harvested in ways that ensure nature will continue to regenerate. We want to keep nature alive – and make it even more alive! Inspired by nature, we create products whose active ingredients, formulas and textures work together to regenerate the mechanisms of all skin types. Products that do more than moisturize, nourish and protect. Products that breathe life into your skin… and bring out the life in your skin.

Special ingredients of the participating product Hydra Plumping Cream is resurrection plant, rose and macro hyaluronic acid that plump, moisturize and keep the hydration level of the skin.

Melvita is suitable for everyone! Melvita is created for people who want to have the best care for their skin and who want to limit their impact on the environment by choosing a natural brand that is taking care of the planet. The efficient formulas, patents, and organic certification are proof that the formulas actually work.

We continuously innovate and perfect our formulas, developed from our vegetable oils and floral waters. We have also just recently been B Corp certified. As a pioneer of organic cosmetics in France, Melvita has always been committed to protecting biodiversity and people. So it was only natural that we should become a B Corp. Why B Corp? Because this certification is one of the most comprehensive certifications existing. It covers every facet of Melvita’s 40-year commitment to people and the planet.
