Propolis is a miracle product produced by the bees themselves, which is known for its antimicrobial, antifungal, antibiotic, antiseptic, healing, antiviral and antioxidant properties. The word propolis stems from the Greek words "pro" and "polis", meaning "before the city" because it is used by the worker bees to sterilize, protect and preserve the hive. Moreover, the bees use it to seal cracks, as well as to protect the hive from infections and external enemies.

The bees collect resins from plants, combine them with wax and pollen, enriching them with enzymes and trace elements to create this substance. More specifically, propolis includes an average of 55% resins, 30% beeswax, 10% essential oils and 5% bee pollen, flavonoids, phenols, and aromatic substances as well as trace elements.

At least 180 different ingredients have been certified in propolis. The most important ones, from a pharmaceutical point of view, are at least 38 flavonoids that it contains (kaempferol, quercetin, pinocembrin, etc) Moreover, its antioxidant action has an important impact on the regeneration of destroyed cells, because of the flavonoids it contains, which hold the free oxygen radicals. Finally, it accelerates the healing of wounds.

Propolis extract has plenty of applications in our daily life, on the skin, the body and the hair, but above all, it is precious for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties for our hygiene and our body.
