About Us

I am happy that you have found us and I would like to tell you about my motivation for introducing my products to introduce.

My name is Melania and I was born in the beautiful city of Naples, where I lived until 1998. Today I live with my family in Weitersburg, where I am currently training as a naturopath.

Since puberty, I have been suffering from seborrhea (disruption of the hormonal balance), which is an overproduction of sebum in the glands. After every mask, cleaning or any other kind of care my skin reacted with boils of the size of 1 euro coins. These remained on the skin for at least three weeks until they healed. They also left unsightly scars. 

I was so embarrassed that I always let my hair hang on my face or put my hand over my face so that nobody could see my issues. In school there were phases in which I did not want to attend classes, and after pregnancy everything got even worse.

When I couldn't handle it anymore, I went to the doctor and he diagnosed seborrhea. At the pharmacy they mixed for me some cleaner, toner and cream against the outbreaks. The products consisted of salicylic acid, parabens and silicones, which were supposed to close the pores. After using the products, a very uncomfortable and painful feeling always remained. 

I tried other products with a similar structure and finally even suffered from neurodermatitis as a result. The conclusion: The Products didn't work and were far too aggressive. Thus, the first idea was born: 

 

"Free yourself!" Free yourself from too many products and questionable ingredients

 

I bought lexica about cosmetic raw materials, did a lot of research and, being my own test person, mixed the first oils. Now I look back on 2.5 years on developping an oil that has changed my life sustainably and positively. My acne has decreased to 90% and my skin very rarely breaks out. Yes, I finally have a normal skin! 

The idea that many people suffer from similar skin problems motivated me to create my own skincare. I questioned myself: Can I help these people with my oil so that they can leave the enormous stress behind? After all, I found a product that cleanses my skin absolutely reliably, that is able to supply my skin with important nutrients at the same time and ultimately free from parabens, alcohol and silicone.  

I am proud and happy to be able to introduce and offer to you the Bel Raphael product range together with my team. We hope that you will be inspired and convinced by the valuable ingredients and the awesome effect of our natural wonder. Free yourself from too many products, questionable ingredients and long care routines and enjoy the real beauties of life self-confidently and mindfully!
