PROPOLIS (PROPOLIS CERA)
Nourishing and rejuvenating
Propolis is a resinous substance that bees make by collecting tree resin, adding substances they produce naturally and chewing vigorously. Due to the resinous property and the actual purpose (as a joint seal in the hive), propolis is often referred to as bee putty or putty resin. At first glance, it is a sticky, resinous sealant that only reveals what it can do at second glance: with propolis, the beehive not only protects itself against microorganisms penetrating through cracks and crevices, but also against the spread of infections inside, propolis provides protection. To sum it up in one sentence: Propolis is one of nature's richest sources of bioflavonoids for natural germ defense in a beehive.
What does propolis do on the skin?
Propolis is rich in organic compounds such as caffeic acid and long-chain wax esters. It contains minerals such as magnesium, calcium and zinc for a well-groomed skin.
But one of the most important benefits is its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are chemical compounds that slow down cell oxidation. This causes the skin to age faster. However, propolis can naturally restore and maintain the skin's structure and even have a rejuvenating effect on the complexion.
