Brand overview

L’abeille (which means ‘The Bee’ in French) is a story of Karen Potgieter’s heritage and her home country. Having French decent, but being born and raised in South Africa, she decided to combine her love for both by creating L’abeille. Her formulations combine exquisite African oils with some outstanding high performance actives, some being harvested off the breathtakingly beautiful coastline of Brittany, France. The floral extracts and honey used in L’abeille would not be possible without Karen’s bee colonies, which are so important for the sustainable existence of all their beautiful flowers, hence the use of L’abeille as Karen’s brand name.
