Summerbee Products was started in 1991 by Duncan Summers, who had spent the previous 25 years at a high level in the pharmaceutical industry. Initially Summerbee focused on honey bee products and food supplements but soon branched out into essential oils, other products associated with essential oils, and a range of health products.
Over the years Summerbee has supplied a wide range of pharmacies and health shops, practitioners such as podiatrists and reflexologists, and has always supplied direct to consumers, both by mail order and latterly concentrating heavily on the internet.
Some of these products became very successful, such as sea buckthorn cream and lemon eucalyptus skin spray, both of which featured highly on several websites including amazon and e-bay, as well as our own site summerbee.co.uk.
Duncan retired in 2017 and his son, Ken Summers, has now taken over the reins running Summerbee products. After graduating in architecture, Ken had a successful career in distribution before taking up his own business in the outer Orkney Islands some years ago which is where he is based now. He has now added Summerbee Products to his portfolio. He uses exactly the same formulations that his father developed.
The main strong points of Summerbee Products have always been high quality of products, and customer service including prompt delivery of product. This will continue under Ken’s management. He will also look to continue to provide services to health professionals such as podiatrists, reflexologists, and aromatherapists.
