the BUZZ - Nourishing Skincare that repels insects naturally. Products inspired and created by the people who use them.
Behind the BUZZ.
Hi, I'm Lisa Jean Walsh, AKA Muffin, Mom and Founder of the BUZZ. After moving our family to Charleston from NYC a few years ago, I quickly realized how ubiquitous the insects are down south! Finding that both of my young boys are allergic to mosquito bites that resulted in oozing, swollen sores, and days of itchy unhappy skin and kids, I was determined to create a skincare line that could protect + hydrate the skin while repelling the insects NATURALLY. I did not want to use harsh chemicals or DEET on my children's skin, nor did I want to on my own aging skin.
I set off to develop all our products LOCALLY. I wanted MORE from every protect, combining beauty and innovation.Dual purpose / MULTI-tasking skincare that is powered from our PLANET and SAFE!!!
I joined up with South Carolina Plant Society to learn more. We source locally, produce in Charleston and use only the best plant powered super-herbs, flowers and extracts in every product we produce.
I wanted to streamline my daily skincare routine with hydrating, easy products that also repel insects. Multi use products that so more, take less time, and reducing our carbon footprint.SHOP
After visiting over 20 national factories I found a wonderful LOCAL factory to formulate our patent-pending hydrating spray that checked all the boxes and made my skin feel great. Now we cant wait to share it with you.
The BUZZ has gone through a transformation. I first launched with the name 'Bite-Me Bug Free' designed for my children with colorful, pop-art playful packaging, but after our first year we got a Cease & Desist for use of the name and had to reposition the brand. I believe with every challenge a new opportunity blooms and we pivoted the brand to target ALL ages & skin types. I designed unisex packaging and scents to appeal to a broader consumer.
Our relaunch has been exciting and full of discovery.
