Nina Tverskikh is the beekeeper and apiarist behind Nina’s Bees. Based in the Blue Mountains of NSW, this small business produces beautiful artisan skincare products for the body and face.
The company follows national organic guidelines for beekeeping and is actively involved in the rescue and rehoming of wild bees from public spaces. Nina educates children on the importance of bees to our ecosystems by conducting bee talks at local schools, offering tips on how to grow bee-friendly gardens.
Nina’s Bees works closely with Native Oils of Australia to source single origin, Australian-grown native essential oils and natural ingredients for their products, creating zero waste in the process.
The company chooses 100% recyclable packaging for all Nina’s Bees products, including cardboard boxes, paper tape, aluminium tins and paper.
We have selected Nina’s Bees as the recipient of this year’s Award in the Body category not just because they create beautiful products that are safe, ethical and sustainable, but because of their outstanding efforts to give back to society and create change. Nina’s Bees is a leader in their field and they deserve to be recognised and celebrated!
