In it’s purest form it’s suitable for all skin types even sensitive, and assists with perfecting, cleansing, and protecting the skin. Naturally antibacterial, it helps to balance hormonal skin and is full of antioxidants that collectively contribute to the slowing down of skin ageing. Importantly, honey is a natural humectant so not only does it attract water it retains it in the skin so that the skin remains supple and elastic. This makes it extremely moisturising, soothing and able to protect against fine lines, wrinkles and dryness. It really does help to deliver a ‘honey glow’ to your skin!
The word propolis is of Greek origin, stemming from 'pro' meaning 'in defence of' and 'polis' meaning 'city'. As the name suggests, propolis is a product involved in the defence of the bee community and as such, it possesses well known 'healing' and ‘antimicrobial’ properties, which have been used for centuries in medicinal and health-related ways. Overall propolis helps in the maintenance of a strong immune system and the body’s resistance to viruses. For the skin this means it’s strong anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties make it one of the best ingredients for balancing problematic skins. It stops bacteria spreading and enhances skin renewal. Rich in vitamins B, C and E it’s a natural skin healer.
Beeswax is another 'miracle-worker' in nature's arsenal of skincare ingredients. Beeswax is a natural protector. Acting as a surfactant in skincare it creates a barrier on the surface of the skin protecting against bacteria and acting as a natural skin strengthener. It’s perfect when incorporated in products like lip and hand elixirs, designed to help protect against harsh weather. When used as an emollient and humectant, beeswax will help to soften dry and parched skins. Rich in vitamin A it can support cell rejuvenation and re-hydration.
