OUR BEE-BASED APPROACH
Gisou is borne out of six generations of passion for honey bees. Negin, her father, and the generations before them have always taken a bee-centered approach in their Mirsalehi Bee Garden. Starting Gisou wasn’t meant to change that for the Mirsalehi honey bees.
That is why we continue to let the bees guide our sustainable beekeeping practices and derive Mirsalehi Honey and Mirsalehi Propolis, our key ingredients, in a cruelty-free manner. Aside from taking care of them by giving them the right environment to thrive, we let the bees be and only take the leftover Mirsalehi Honey, if and when appropriate. The Mirsalehi honey bees are at the core of who we are and what we do at Gisou, and we strive to give to them as much as they give to us.
Altogether, we are committed to a sustainable and cruelty-free production method that puts the Mirsalehi honey bees first, not only for the sake of the Mirsalehi honey bees but the greater ecosystem as well.
OUR SUSTAINABLE APPROACH
At Gisou, we are just as passionate about our Mirsalehi honey bees as we are about our products. Just like Negin’s mother set out to do 30 years ago, we wish to develop effective haircare with as many natural ingredients as possible. To complement the natural key ingredients from the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, we choose supporting ingredients in Gisou formulas based on our belief that the effect and quality of our products are just as important.
To allow our passion for the Mirsalehi honey bees and the greater ecosystem to carry further than the Mirsalehi Bee Garden, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and looking for ways to improve our packaging by working with more recycled, recyclable, and biodegradable materials.
