Save the bees with Melvita Argan Bees Project

For a buzzing good cause

RM5 from every purchase of products from Melvita's Argan Range will go to a beekeeping training project that will help support Moroccan women

Start your 2016 with a charitable gesture by participating in Melvita's Argan Bees Project. If you didn't know already, the French beauty brand's Organic Argan Oil is sourced from fair trade, allowing Moroccan women the opportunity of fair employment to improve their family's wellbeing and social status. These women will gather Argan nuts to help them develop their own beekeeping activities as an additional income-generating activity. This actually supports beekeeping by young people within the most isolated local communities. The disappearance of bees in the last three years has caused a 40% decline in honey production in Morocco, hence Melvita Foundation was formed to protect bees, working alongside French and Moroccan non-profit organizations.


From now to March 2016, purchase any product from Melvita's Argan Range and Melvita Malaysia will donate €1 (approximately RM5) to the non-profit organization Man & Nature. All proceeds will fund a beekeeping training project for these Moroccan women. Here are our top picks from Melvita's Argan Range that we're loving:

Melvita's Argan Range is available online and in Melvita stores nationwide.
