About our female owned and operated business


BeesButter is a line of natural skincare handmade in small batches in Toronto, Ontario. BeesButter uses local beeswax and sources pure and natural ingredients as close to home as possible.

We are on a mission to provide sustainable skincare that is eco-friendly and plastic free. Made with a short list of ingredients that you can actually pronounce, you can feel good about what you are putting on your skin and your environmental impact.


The story of BeesButter begins on the Big Island of Hawaii where founder Dorothy Saulewicz joined a volunteer program after finishing teacher's college at UofT.

Immersed in nature and holistic living, Dorothy witnessed firsthand the medicinal benefits of wholesome ingredients with minimal processing. Dorothy learned the recipe of the Coconut Body Balm which became the foundation of BeesButter Canada.

Upon returning to Toronto, Dorothy continued her career in outdoor education taking students on canoe and hiking trips in the Canadian wilderness. All the while, BeesButter continued to grow and in 2016, the business was established in the ethos of natural ingredients, sustainable packaging and honouring nature.


We source our beeswax from a small family farm in Mulmur, Ontario. All other ingredients are sourced as close to home as possible including our packaging which is eco-friendly and plastic free. Every product is handmade in our Toronto Studio.
