Ives and Bees
St. Petersburg, FL
We are two sisters, Vanessa and Ivy. It all started when Vanessa’s oldest daughter got the family into handmade natural soaps. They noticed the difference & loved the many benefits of the natural ingredients in their soap so they started using natural soaps on a regular basis. But they soon found out that it can be very expensive to buy handmade natural soaps regularly. So, Vanessa decided to do lots of research & tried making soaps herself at home. After much trial & error, she finally found the perfect balance & started giving some away to family & friends. Thankfully, they had positive feedback & enjoyed using her soaps. In fact, Ivy loved using them so much she encouraged Vanessa to share them with the world! Since then, Ivy has learned & developed a passion for candle making herself. With plenty of doubts & hesitations, frustration, testing, paperwork & everything else that comes along with starting a new business, Ives and Bees was born.
We both have two girls; these cousins LOVE spending time together and luckily our husbands enjoy hanging out with each other too. We live 4 hours away from each other so it is a bit of a challenge but we love getting together & we really have fun working with each other. We are so happy we found something that we both enjoy and are passionate about.
We truly believe in the benefits of natural products that is why we decided to embark on our goal to make them more accessible to more people. Therefore, we try our best to find ways to make them affordable, and at the same time, we also want to make them in a way that preserves our environment.
