For more than 25 years, Melvita has been a pioneer in the field of organic beauty products. What started as a beekeeper paying tribute to his beloved hillsides has grown into one of France's leading purveyors of natural skin care products. Today, Melvita launches in the United States with a full-service e-commerce site. In celebration, Melvita will offer free shipping on orders of $25 or more for the first two weeks (Nov. 4 - 17). Organic living loyalists will immediately fall in love with Melvita's lines of indulgent face care, body care and hair care, hygiene products and eau de toilettes as well as floral waters and plant oils.
Melvita offers women's, men's, and baby collections, as well as nutritional supplements and its own line of organic honey, that retail between $6 and $48. Founded in Ardeche, France by beekeeper and biologist Bernard Chevilliat in 1983, Melvita (meaning "honey and life" in Latin) has always been a passionate advocate for the complete organic lifestyle. Each of Melvita's products are made with a unique blend of nature's own treasures, such as sunflower, lime tree sap, green tea extract and the royal jelly of honey bees. They also all carry the prestigious certification by ECOCERT, France's leading organic certification organization, certifying its products organic, including packaging and company practices.
The new year will ring in another exciting new beginning for Melvita, with the opening of its first retail store in the San Francisco Centre in San Francisco, California in January of 2010.
"We have always believed that organic living is the key to a healthy future," said Frederic Stoeckel, Managing Director for Melvita. "With our certified organic products, we aim to make this lifestyle simpler and more practical. Our ingredients bring you closer to nature with every use."
