Bee Simonds, founder
Aging gracefully is not about fighting signs of aging, but honoring our bodies with what we eat, avoiding toxins wherever possible, and giving our skin the supplemental nourishment that only unrefined, organic, luxuriously natural skincare can provide.
H IS FOR LOVE was created to fill a need for highly effective skincare grounded in plant wisdom. Operating from a belief in the body's innate ability to balance when given the proper tools, Bee Simonds has created a minimalist luxury skincare line that brings every skin type to a place of harmony. The name H IS FOR LOVE stems from Bee's lifelong connection to the number three. Composed of three lines, H is a symbol. Nature has a deep affinity for this number: three dimensions of space, three laws of motion, three types of galaxies; from the tiniest atom to the heavens, the number three represents balance in design and perfection in nature. H IS FOR LOVE is a nod to the divine as it reveals itself through the natural world.
"Stirred to contribute something redeeming to the world of beauty upon finding myself in an industry which tends to promote denial, an age rife with false promises and toxicity, I put my career in cosmetology on the back burner and chose to focus on something that could promote purity; a clean option which would work with a person’s chemistry rather than covering it up or stripping it down. Instead of promoting a negative outlook on aging and creating services and product lines that aim at little more than idolizing the fleeting ‘perfection’ of youth, I have drawn wisdom and inspiration from cultures throughout history who have looked to nature for health and wellness, healing, nourishment and prosperity and have discovered that nature is enough.
I honor the value of what they knew in practical ways which are relevant in my life – from choosing locally grown foods for my family to the fibers we use to furnish our living environment. I do, however, believe in balance and let loose to indulge in some delightful artisan chocolate, even when at times it may contain a bit of refined sugar (gasp!)
I find that my body and spirit seem most harmonized when I choose to avoid foods grown with pesticides, furnishings and clothes made with fire-retardants, toxic cleaning products, and processed foods etc. You are the beneficiary of my high standards in the form of products you can trust to be pure, natural, fresh, and teeming with biodynamic efficacy for skin, spirit and life."
