Propolis is a resinous mixture that honey bees produce from tree buds sap flows. When they combine the sap with their own discharges and beeswax, they create a sticky, greenish-brown product used as a coating to build their hives. as well as function as a natural disinfectant against bacteria.Using Propolis in skin care products provides a similar defense for our skin.
SCIENCE &HEALTH BENEFITS
Propolis is the focus of many scientific research projects surrounding it’s healing properties.
As an antimicrobial, preliminary scientific studies show that some types of propolis have in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity and that is why it may be very effective when fighting acne. Propolis is also known in science as an antioxidant, an emollient and is being studied for skin cancer treatment and cancer prevention. Our innovative process of propolis keeps up to 98% of its natural features and uses its properties to naturally restore and maintain skin structure.
Propolis is commonly used for its healing, antiseptic and restorative capabilities. Propolis will assist in balancing, healing and soothing problematic skin. It also accelerates the rate of cell growth and decongests pores. Propolis protects against bacteria and functions as a great anti-inflammatory agent.
Propolis has been used for medicinal purposes since before 350 BC.
The ancient Greeks used propolis to treat abscesses, Assyrians used it to help heal wounds and tumors, and Ancient Egyptians used propolis for mummification.
Alongside enjoying the great effects of honey & milk baths, the gorgeous Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra started using propolis, a mystic, powerful ingredient that was used during the embalming process. Propolis was known for its preserving abilities and effective treatments, and she applied these traits to her skin.In ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most admired figure in the history of medicine, would use propolis to heal infections and wounds.
It’s no wonder propolis is one of Hey Honey’s foundation ingredients!
**Cassia Obtusifolia seed extract- it’s primarily used as a skin conditioning agent because of its high content of polysaccharides.
