What are buttersuckles?

Our founder loves honeysuckles and buttercups. That's how we got our name, "h. honeycup". Wait, our name could have been buttersuckles! These flowers now appear on our packaging and we love it!

We like that it sounds fresh and fun, like an outdoor adventure. Our name comes from nature and so do our ingredients. Plant-based just feel right.

It turns out that creating natural and organic skin care products is as much fun as using them. How many samples do we try before we select our final product? Too many to count!

We try to keep things light in order to enjoy what we're doing. Whether it's a photo shoot of our products and everyone is laughing, or we're giving feedback on formulas in a relaxed, respectful way.

It's important that our attitude about natural beauty shows through in the products we create. Please have fun with them just like we do!

What about the "h"? Well, that's a mystery, isn't it.

There is no official definition of “natural” skincare so be careful of these claims. Remember, the label reveals the true ingredients so always review the label. Ingredients are listed in descending order of concentration.

I used to be focused on the facts: black and white. Then after my corporate career, I discovered lots of other beautiful colors. The yellow that peace of mind can bring. The orange of relaxed confidence. All brought out through a commitment to self-care.  

I really wanted to help other women get excited about self-care by treating their bodies with respect. It needed to be something you could see AND feel. There were more colors out there for everyone to explore. You could close your eyes, smell and touch something beautiful. A guilt-free way to feel good about yourself. It was so simple and I knew everyone could do it!
