Meet the Moksi Creator: Marielle from Bee-utiful Botanicals
Marielle is the passionate Creator behind Bee-utiful Botanicals. Hailing from Pretoria, South Africa, Marielle is a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach who has dedicated her life to promoting well-being and helping individuals with chronic health conditions find balance.
Marielle’s journey towards creating Bee-utiful Botanicals began when she faced her health struggles a few years ago. Determined to regain her vitality, she embarked on a journey to live as organically as possible. She started buying organic food, prioritised stress reduction, and sought organic skincare products. However, as she delved into the world of skincare, she became increasingly perplexed by the ambiguous terms on product labels—organic, natural, and their often misleading use in marketing campaigns.
Driven by her curiosity and the desire to unearth the truth, Marielle conducted extensive research. Her findings were eye-opening: many products on store shelves contained minimal natural ingredients, and some even harboured endocrine disruptors, phthalates, chemicals, fragrances, and unnatural preservatives. Once absorbed through the skin, these harmful substances could accumulate in the body, overburdening the liver and potentially wreaking havoc on internal organs.
Motivated to make a difference, Marielle decided to develop her line of clean skincare products. Her primary goal was to ensure that every ingredient used in her formulations was free from harmful chemicals. Over time, her product range expanded to include body care products, all adhering to her steadfast ethos: 100% natural, so pure that you could even eat them!
Bee-utiful’s skincare products are a testament to Marielle’s commitment to creating a nurturing experience for the skin. Packed with essential fatty acids, minerals, vitamins, and healing herbs, they provide the skin with the nutrition it craves. Every item is carefully handcrafted in small batches, with ingredients sustainably sourced to minimise the ecological footprint. These products are free from chemicals, colourants, and perfumes, making them ideal for individuals with sensitive skin or specific conditions like eczema and acne. Moreover, Bee-utiful’s offerings have no side effects, which is a boon for those seeking natural alternatives.
Bee-utiful’s products incorporate naturally sourced bee products, such as raw honey, beeswax, and propolis. Marielle maintains her beehives to ensure the purity and quality of these ingredients, which boast remarkable healing and beautifying properties. Additionally, Bee-utiful Botanicals harnesses the soothing and healing gel of South Africa’s Bulbinella plant and other natural and essential oils rich in vitamins and fatty acids. This thoughtful combination of ingredients visibly enhances the skin’s health and radiance.
As an advocate of functional medicine, Marielle believes in addressing the root causes of health problems rather than merely alleviating symptoms. This holistic approach extends beyond skincare, as she emphasises the importance of “Root Cause Treatment” for physical and emotional well-being. Functional medicine has become Marielle’s driving passion because of its proven effectiveness in helping individuals achieve optimal health. After all, why settle for feeling only 50% healthy when you can experience 100% vitality?
