The Story of Bullenbees
The Story of Marie Smith and the start of Bullenbees
I am a 50+ year old medical engineer who has had a lifetime battling skin issues. My frustration with my skin issues reached a peak when I experienced an allergic reaction to my second pregnancy that resulted in a full-body, poison-ivy-like rash. The dermatologist gave me the same old standard - a steroid gel in petroleum jelly that I had to smear on my whole body! What a nightmare to wear petroleum jelly all over my enormous, pregnant body, and then to put on clothes, and go to work!
Well, necessity is the mother of invention - I was driven to research how to make a cream from natural ingredients, vitamins and plant oils that could calm a rash; and that would be safe during pregnancy. I am a research scientist at a medical device company, so this type of investigation is in my wheelhouse.
My plant-based, vitamin-rich formula worked as successfully as the steroid cream! So, I created a few additional formulas for my other skin issues and successfully resolved those issues too. Soon, I had doctors, friends, family, and co-workers requesting I make products for their skin!
And so, out of necessity, a skincare business was born!
