The Beekeeper’s Naturals Origin Story
Founder Carly Stein started her career at a hedge fund and then moved to Goldman Sachs – but her passion had always been wellness, and in particular the importance of bringing ethically made, healing products to a mainstream audience. The inspiration for Beekeeper’s Naturals occurred when she contracted tonsillitis studying in Italy as a college student. She faced the prospect of returning to Canada for emergency surgery (she couldn’t use antibiotics due to an autoimmune condition), but was fortunate enough to be offered a bottle of propolis – a bee-powered ingredient – by a corner pharmacist. Carly never lost sight of this dream, and soon started beekeeping – even while working in finance as her day job. Setting up Beekeeper’s Naturals has enabled her to marry the two worlds of science and nature to deliver remedies from sources that can be trusted.
