The Benefits of Brazilian Bee Propolis in Skincare
Lately, you may have heard of Propolis in your local health food or supplement store. It's becoming more and more popular due to its antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties and also helps to stimulate the immune system.
We at Epicuren Discovery have been using Brazilian Propolis in our skincare products for decades. What is Propolis you ask? Well, it is a compound produced by bees to help coat and build their hives and packs quite the punch with its many benefits. We have included it in 3 of our favorite products, mostly used for problematic concerns, but also a great beneficial ingredient for all skin types. Below we are going to talk about our 3 products that contain Brazilian Propolis. In the video below, you can learn a bit more about our Brazilian Propolis Mist and Brazilian Propolis lotion. Note: No bees are harmed when sourcing Propolis.
Epicuren Brazilian Propolis Mist
Our Brazilian Propolis Mist is a toner rich in bioflavonoids and Bee Propolis Extract. It also contains witch hazel and grapeseed oil. After cleansing, you mist it onto your skin about six inches from your face, make sure you shake well first, or you can apply to a dampened cotton pad and then apply over your face. You could also spray onto your hand and press in, but I like to just spray it on and then give a little press afterward. After applying this mist, we recommend using our Brazilian Propolis Lotion.
Brazilian Propolis Lotion
The Brazilian Propolis Lotion is a lightweight moisturizer that leaves you with a dewy finish. You will cleanse and tone your skin and then add any other serum or booster you like. Once you have finished with these steps apply your Brazilian Propolis Lotion as your moisturizer prior to any SPF application. The Brazilian Propolis Lotion also contains olive fruit oil for added moisture.
X-Treme Cream Propolis Sunscreen SPF 45+
Epicuren also carries an awesome sunscreen with Propolis in it. X-treme Cream is a moisturizing formula enhanced with Propolis; providing UV protection while helping the skin appear supple and more radiant.
