Mark & Catherine started Bee Natural in 1992, with the first sales being in the Byron Bay markets. The mission to always bring the best of nature into a high quality and affordable range has seen Bee Natural grow over the last 23 years to be sold in health food stores and specialist honey outlets as far afield as New York & Hong Kong.
Honey – Propolis - Beeswax
Incorporating the by-products from the beehive with the finest of natural oils is a successful formula that stands the test of time.
Ancient civilizations have used this natural formula to successfully care for their skin. Its traditional use has been cited over thousands of years in documents from Asia, North Africa and Europe for both external and internal purposes.
In more recent times modern science has also been rediscovering the beneficial moisturising, soothing and healing properties of honey, beeswax and propolis.
Our future is dedicated to that same basic philosophy that continues to be the key to our success.
Still True To Its Origins
Bee Natural is available at the:
- Byron Bay, Bangalow & Channon markets

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Bee Natural products really natural?
Honey, beeswax and natural vegetable oils are sourced directly from nature. Other ingredients are plant derived and we avoid the use of colours and fragrances.
What are the beneficial properties of honey and beeswax for the skin?
Honey's healing power is believed to be due to its hygroscopic nature (ability to draw moisture). It is able to draw moisture from the air to help re-hydrate the skin. Beeswax is rich in protein and propolis, which is also high in natural healing properties, particularly for burns and scarring.
What is propolis?
Propolis is produced by bees to help seal wax and the honeycomb together and is well known for its strong healing qualities.Propolis offers antiseptic, antibiotic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. It helps to maintain clean skin preventing bacterial build up which can lead to blemishes.
Why do Bee Natural products work?
Drawing moisture from the air, the creams re-hydrate the skin, leaving it supple and soft and preventing signs of ageing.
Are Bee Natural products safe for sensitive skin or babies?
We have had very positive response from people with sensitive skin. Bee Natural products are very natural (see above question for explanation) and often provide relief for sufferers of skin complaints such as eczema or psoriasis. We always encourage customers to try a little bit on a small area of skin initially to see if it is suitable.
