So what is Bee Propolis?
What’s all the “buzz” about the benefits of Bee Propolis for you skin and where does this ingredient come from to begin with?
Apart from making honey, Bee’s also make a sticky substance known as Bee Propolis. Collected from the flowers, tree leaves, and leaf buds of particular plants and used to coat the interior of their hives for self defense, its acts as a natural disinfectant and antioxidant for the bees, and it just so happens that Bee Propolis offers similar benefits for our skin.
How Does It Affect Your Skin?
- Packed with antioxidants.
- Rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
- Known to help prevent acne and aging.
- Can help decongest pores and stimulate cell renewal.
The list of benefits for Bee Propolis in skincare is extensive, yet it’s just now finding it’s way into organic and natural skincare products such as our Bee-Radiant Organic Face Oil.
The Many Advantages Of Regular Use
Help your skin look and feel refreshed.
Aside from the fact this super-antioxidant was a favorite of the legendary Egyptian beauty, Queen Cleopatra, Bee Propolis has been heralded as a natural healer and restorative compound for over 5000 years. Egyptians had been turning to this powerful ingredient for its purification and preservative abilities in the embalming process when Cleopatra - needing to look rested and refreshed after ruling Egypt of course - began incorporating Bee Propolis into her daily skincare regimen as an organic face serum.
Powerful healing properties.
It turns out that in Ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most admired figure in the history of medicine, also happened to be using Bee Propolis as a topical organic skincare treatment to heal infections, abscesses, and wounds due to its ability to boost the performance of superoxide dimutase - a powerful natural antioxidant found in the body that promotes healing by enhancing cell growth and increasing blood circulation, while preventing scarring.
Helps fight acne and bacteria on the skin.
When used as an active ingredient in natural skincare like our organic face oil, Bee Propolis is capable of doing things like repairing damaged skin and removing bacteria which can cause the clogging of pores. It contains antiseptic properties such as flavanoids and caffeic acid which help fight inflammation, and it has also been shown to kill most strains of anaerobic bacteria, such as P. acnes which is responsible for acne infection - making it one of the best sensitive skin care ingredients on the market.
Many medical benefits are being discovered.
At the University of San Diego, Dr. Seema Patel of the Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics Research Center conducted numerous tests and found the benefits of Bee Propolis as a highly effective skin treatment for the removal of rashes and pimples. Perhaps most remarkably, her scientific research concluded that the benefits of Bee Propolis as a super-antioxidant has been found to contain over 300 active compounds which help fight against cancer, so it is now being incorporated into certain cancer treatments.
