Our organic and natural ingredients...
In the right blend of oils, HONEY becomes a natural and gentle anti-septic and anti-bacterial, keeping skin clean and healthy. The same reaction also produces a natural alpha hydroxy acid which fights wrinkles and signs of aging. Honey also keeps skin nourished with an array of vitamins and amino acids.
Bees harvest the most biologically active tree resins and sap available to create PROPOLIS. The natural germicidal properties of these raw ingredients are amplified as the bees combine them with their secretions (bee secrets) before it is used to line and seal their hives and combs.
BEE POLLEN, or ‘bee bread’, is nature’s multi-vitamin and a staple food for bees in the hive. Swedish dermatologist Dr. Lars-Erik Essen notes, “external use of bee pollen stimulates cell renewal with its high concentration of nucleic acids RNA and DNA.”
ROYAL JELLY, the food of the Queen Bee is also the perfect source of nourishment for the skin. Royal Jelly contains generous amounts of gelatin, a vital catalyst for collagen production and wrinkle repair. It also includes a natural antibiotic that is a quarter the strength of penicillin, more than enough to keep skin free of harmful bacteria.
BEESWAX creates a protective coating that locks in moisture while allowing skin to breathe and rid itself of harmful toxins and waste. At the same time, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergenic and germicidal properties in beeswax keep skin healthy and strong.
The hive products work best when they are delivered in an oil, helping them absorb into the skin. Our favorite is organic OLIVE OIL, a powerful source of moisture and nutrients.
