Propolis is a mixture of resinous substances, beeswax, balms, and essential oils with lovely aromas. It’s a substance made by bees from a resin they collect on plants and trees. No wonder the ancient Egyptians valued the regenerating effects of propolis – it contains more than 300 substances with antioxidant effects, plus B vitamins, minerals, tannins, and other helpful ingredients.

Cosmetic Products with Propolis
Propolis is most often found in products designed to maintain and regulate the natural flora of the skin. It is also widely used as a natural fragrance in various products, because many love its refreshing aroma of a meadow in full bloom.
Propolis is virtually non-toxic, suitable for all skin types, and can be used for long periods of time. However, if you’re allergic to bee products, it can cause unpleasant skin reaction.
Propolis is mainly popular in natural and organic cosmetics – whether it’s already part of other natural substances, or as one of the main ingredients (as propolis tincture). Notino.co.uk carries for instance a line of propolis acne creams and cleansing toners for oily and problem skin.
Propolis has beneficial effects on mouth ulcers and cold sores. It’s also often used in oral hygiene – for example propolis toothpastes are very popular. If your lips often crack and develop sores in the colder months, get a propolis lip balm and use it whenever you need to. A propolis ointment is fantastic for cracked skin on your hands, and a propolis shampoo will be amazing for dandruff.
Scientists still believe that some of the benefits of this amazing natural substance are yet to be discovered. Bee propolis will always surprise you with its powerful and universal effects. Try it today!
