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. 

APIVITA is the first Greek company that has been using propolis since its very beginning. Its long experience in bee products, and the fact that it has its own beehives, ensures that the company has access to propolis of high biological value and cleanliness, thus guarantying the high effectiveness of its products.

The first and most important rule for the prevention of viruses and microbes is the correct and thorough washing of our hands.

The bee teaches us that propolis can help protect us from viruses, microbes and bacteria, while at the same time keeping our skin healthy.

For the effective hygiene of our hands, APIVITA proposes the following products, offering a natural solution with the antimicrobial and antiseptic properties of propolis to help protect ourselves, just like it protects the beehive:

In 1972, in a pharmacy in Athens, 2 pharmacists, Nikos and Niki Koutsiana, began making the first soap with propolis, which was a black soap with very special smell. It was against all trends of the era, which at the time proposed white imported soaps with very attractive smells. However, thanks to its unique formula, this soap became the motive in 1979 to start the story of APIVITA.

Today, 40 years later, this same bar soap continues to be loved worldwide for its unique effectiveness. Enriched with propolis, with organic thyme oil and with organic soap mass, it is known for its mild antiseptic action and for deeply cleansing the skin without causing dehydration.

Mild hand soap with a pump, which gently cleanses the skin without causing irritations, thanks to its mild cleansing system and the saponaria. It leaves the skin soft and maintains its natural moisture with organic Greek olive oil, thyme honey, organic shea butter and panthenol. It offers mild antiseptic action with propolis extract, leaving the skin lightly fragranced with organic grapefruit essential oil. Suitable for the whole family.

For more complete hand treatment, especially during periods that require frequent hand washing for the protection from viruses, it is necessary to effectively hydrate our hands.

The hand cream with jasmine and propolis moisturizes the skin while maintaining our hands naturally hydrated with organic aloe vera juice, organic olive oil, thyme honey and organic jasmine oil. It nourishes and boosts the skin and the nails with shea butter, avocado oil, biotin, vitamin E and panthenol. Moreover, it offers extra antioxidant protection, thanks to the patented extract from 3 types of organic mountain tea and propolis.
