Hi, I’m Lucy, the person behind the brand’s name.
Lucy Bee is a small, UK-based, privately-owned family business, and it was named after me due to the fact I was diagnosed as a celiac at 18 months old. This meant that my parents had to completely change the way we ate. They had to constantly check labels and cooking from scratch became the norm in our house. This naturally made us interested in our health and wellbeing, from the inside out.
I am a CIBTAC Beauty Therapist and have always been interested in not only what I put into my body but also what I put onto it. Working in spas and salons meant I was introduced to many different products and all sorts of ingredients I had never heard of or could pronounce. It made me realise what was actually in a lot of products we use and to question the fact that these were being absorbed into my body, through my skin.
I started to create my own products and I loved the fact that I knew exactly what I was putting on my skin and that the products were completely natural. The skincare range followed on from this so that I could share these products and my passion with others.
An emphasis on being ethical and caring for the environment is at the foundation of all that we do, so a major point with developing the skincare range was to make sure that the products would be free from palm oil. This has taken time and perseverance, but I believe in sticking to our values and am so happy that we have finally achieved our goal.
We promise to be certified Vegan, Cruelty Free and COSMOS Organic where we can. Not only are ethics important, the effectiveness of the products are too, we are creating a range of innovative results driven products, which are ethically made and using the best sustainable options available.
Additionally, our Soap bars are certified Fair Trade. It’s these ethics that are at the foundation of everything that we do – including using recyclable packaging and minimising our use of plastic.
Our entire range of skincare products are manufactured in the UK and I really hope you love them as much as I do,
