Who Creates Our Natural Body Care Products?
I’m happy to introduce our skincare formulator and manufacturer, Kevin Parker. Even though he’s my husband, it’s been so much fun working with him to create my natural body care products. I help with formulas and production but Kevin has been formulating personal care products for most of his career. He knows the science, regulations, packaging options, and ingredient suppliers. Phew! He’s really been there to help me implement my vision.
What’s he like? He’s the athletic one in the family. A natural athlete, he moved from rugby to compete in triathlons. He started with short sprint races and gradually moved up to the Ironman level. Wow. I love to go out and support him at the shorter races BUT I’ve had breakfast, lunch, and dinner while he’s still doing an all-day Ironman race!
Kevin is a great dad to two beautiful daughters who both tower over me. What can I say? It’s a tall family! And they are ALL athletic. Where they have the natural ability, I have sheer will. Hah!
He’s also really fun and we have a great time together. A sense of humor is a big part of how we live. There is also a huge amount of mutual respect. I wouldn’t want to be on this journey with anyone else. Thank you Kevin!

Upcycling creates less trash by reusing and transforming the containers and other things you already have. Brilliant! The examples below save you money and if your items are biodegradable at least they don’t end up floating in the ocean.
- use old fabric and towels as drop cloths or rags
- reuse paper in packages you receive for future packages you ship
- get a refill on liquid products
- repurpose skincare and cosmetic containers
Upcycling bottles, jars, paper tubesFirst try to get refills of your products so the original container lives on. Afterward remove the label from glass using rubbing alcohol, sterilize and use for countless things. The possibilities are endless.
- DIY skincare ingredients
- organize craft materials
- store tea or spices
- portable water spray
- a vase
- DIY bath oil blends
- row of vases
- travel size toiletries
- store sand from fave beach
Paperboard tubes (sanitize first)
- plant seeds
- use it as a little gift box
- battery candle holder

Our founder loves honeysuckles and buttercups. That's how we got our name, "H. Honeycup". Wait, our name could have been buttersuckles!
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 feels 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!
