In the awards autumn series of blog posts, we get to know the brands behind the nominee products of the Nordic Natural Beauty Awards 2023. In this post, we are proud to share more about the Norwegian natural cosmetics brand BeeKi Skincare, as told by the brand:
Tone Bryn (Founder) is a pharmacist, has a PhD in the immune system and has a long and broad experience in research and development of pharmaceuticals. Tone is a certified beekeeper and is trained in “Sacred Beekeeping Secrets”. Her interest and fascination with bees was created when she discovered the many health-promoting effects of the bees’ many products.
In 2021, she quit her dream job as clinical research director to do what she really wanted to do; being a full-time beekeeper and develop healthy and unique skincare products of high quality with ingredients from her own bees. Tone is focused on healthy and natural skincare and is very conscious in her choice of ingredients. In addition to functionality, she seeks organic and sustainable high-quality ingredients that are ethically sourced.
In the summer, Tone is a full-time beekeeper. She is concerned with the health and well-being of the bees and runs beekeeping in harmony with her bees.
BeeKi = Lifeforce from Bees (Ki = Chi = Lifeforce)
Empowered by Bees (containing beeswax produced by our own bees).
BeeKi was started with respect and love for the bees, and a deep desire to create healthy and functional skincare products with nourishing oils and ingredients/lifeforce (Ki) from our own bees. Healthy Bees, Healthy People, Healthy Planet.
Handmade luxury produced in our own lab in Norway
Tone is the product developer, producer, and the beekeeper. She makes all the products by hand, in small batches in our own laboratory (small batches ensure “fresh” products).
The products contain natural and carefully selected ingredients – for the best for you and the planet. With respect for nature, Tone carefully selects ingredients/oils that, in addition to provide maximum therapeutic benefits, are certified organic, wildcrafted in their natural habitat, or grown using organic practices in cases where organic certification is unavailable.
The products are carefully composed of as few ingredients as possible and with properties that complement each other optimally to create the desired effect/function. Key ingredients in all products are beeswax from our own bees.
In the summer, Tone is a full-time beekeeper. By looking after the bees and extracting the ingredients for the skincare products herself, she has full control over the quality and knows that the bees are in the best possible condition. We produce healthy and natural skincare with sustainable and skin-friendly ingredients. All BeeKi products are 100% natural.
BeeKi skincare products are created to provide deep nourishment and care for body & mind:
- For the whole family, also young children* Cosmetic Product Safety Report
- Suitable for all skin types, including dry and sensitive skin
- Products to improve skin condition
- Simple skincare routines – Multifunctional products – Simple living
With age, the skin’s natural production of fat decreases. The skin becomes less elastic, drier, and less able to retain moisture. By applying BeeKi skin oils, the skin receives nourishment and fatty acids, and the skin’s aging process can be reversed. A protective layer is formed which helps the skin retain moisture.
Regardless of skin type, the skin needs a supply of essential fatty acids to be in a healthy balance. Choosing the “right type” of oil is essential. Clean and good oils have many advantages; reduces wrinkles and fine lines, reduces large pores in the skin, treats acne, has a calming effect, increases skin elasticity, protects the skin, increases regeneration of skin cells, protects against UV light, etc.
The beeswax in the oils provides a natural protective layer and helps keep the skin moist, soft and smooth throughout the day and night (without clogging the pores).

The beekeeping season is coming to an end. We are now focusing on the launch of new anti-aging products that will come on the market during the autumn.
Our main goal in the future is to reach as many people as possible and make BeeKi Skincare available to new customers and markets. We are looking forward to celebrating our 1-year anniversary on 11.11.
We produce all the products ourselves, in our private lab with our own beeswax. All our products are manufactured according to quality standards that meet the requirements of ISO standard 22716:2007 (GMP) and the cosmetics regulation. We primarily choose external suppliers that carry certified organic ingredients. The suppliers must be ISO 9001 (quality), must meet relevant requirements for GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and should be ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 (working environment) certified.
We believe in “Beauty in simplicity”, and by providing natural, multi-purpose products for the whole family we can contribute with environmentally healthy skincare products that take care of both you and the planet.
Vine of the soul
“Every tree, every plant, has a spirit. People may say that a plant has no mind. I tell them that a plant is alive and conscious. A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit in it that is conscious, that sees everything, which is the soul of the plant, its essence, what makes it alive…”
