Abeille Beauté started humbly in a small kitchen in southwestern Pennsylvania...
Alyssa Fine- then a high school student- began to experiment in her kitchen with small quantities of beeswax and honey, both supplied by her father's local beekeeping business. While that first batch of lip balm wasn't quite up to par, it inspired her to continue creating homemade cosmetics with natural ingredients.
A few years later, a recent college graduate fascinated by the beekeeping world, Alyssa received the honor of serving as 2011 Pennsylvania Honey Queen, sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Beekeepers Association. During her reign, she traveled extensively throughout Pennsylvania educating the public about the importance of honey bees. In addition to her presentations, she sometimes drew on her background to give beeswax cosmetics demonstrations, much to the thrill of her audiences.
The following year, Alyssa competed among Honey Queens from across the United States and spent another season traveling the country as 2012 American Honey Queen, sponsored by the American Beekeeping Federation. Throughout her reign, she had the opportunity to reach a much larger audience, and found that people were similarly fascinated with her homemade cosmetics background.
After returning home, Alyssa began to wonder if she could somehow marry her interests in natural cosmetics and beekeeping with her public speaking skills and business management degree. She wanted to provide top-quality natural cosmetics to people all across the country.
Abeille Beauté was exactly what she had hoped to create.
Translating directly from the French, Abeille Beauté means "Honey Bee Beauty" and it's easy to understand why. Abeille Beauté uses one of two main ingredients from the hive in each product-
Alyssa's vision for natural skincare- direct from the hive- is reflected in each Abeille Beauté product.
