poltos On the skin:

  • Provides quick and visible firming of the skin.
  • Slows down the effects of aging (main benefit)
  • Has proven antibiotic and anti-inflammatory effects.

The most valuable of beehive products, the most difficult to collect, the more expensive. Royal Jelly is at the apex of natural nutritional supplements which assist in the acquisition and restoration of physical health. The list of its effects in edible form is long. Here we only refer to those effects of its direct application to the skin. All the amino acids essential for humans are present in Royal Jelly in sufficient proportions. Of the 29 amino acids which have been identified, the most important is the aspartic and glutamic acid.
An illustration is provided by its content of vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B4, B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B7, B8, B9, B12, and smaller amounts of vitamin C, D, A and E. The main minerals contents : K, Ca, Na, Zn, Fe, Cu and Mn, with a strong predominance of potassium. Royal Jelly is rich in acetylcholine and globulin. Acetylcholine (more than 1 mg / g) dilates the blood vessels when applied to the skin and helps with improved blood flow and thus oxygenation of tissues.

propoli

The marvelous product of the bee’s labours and the least known by the general public. ma.beez collects propolis from the hives of a special way and utilises its invaluable properties in the production of cosmetics. The use of bee products for therapeutic purposes was widespread in all the great civilizations of antiquity. Nowadays there is hardly any information worthy of the products of the hive, given their healing properties, nor are they widely used, especially in our country, even though we live in a botanical paradise.

Scientifically proven properties of propolis 

Used in conjunction with antibiotics, propolis covers a wide range of bacteria reducing the damage they cause to the body. Propolis acts on staphylococcus and streptococcus, both responsible for infections of the oral cavity. Cinnamic acid, certain flavors and many flavonoids are among the substances which make propolis act as an antibacterial. Japanese researchers have shown that propolis inhibits the proliferation of bacteria.
The activity of propolis against viruses is also very important, and the flavonoids it contains is also responsible for it. Its action against the herpes and glands-virus type has been fully explained. Other ingredients such as esters and caffeic acid are as well involved in the activity of propolis against viruses. Finally propolis acts as protective against influenza, hepatitis B, oral herpes and herpes zoster.
Propolis proves effective against attacks of pathogenic fungi in the epidermis. In dermatology and cosmetology it ensures brilliance and luster of the skin by reducing candida and microsporum. It activates the immune system and produces large numbers of macrophages, essential for the extermination of fungi and bacteria.
Propolis heals damaged tissues mainly thanks to the essential oils it contains. Studies have demonstrated the protective effect of propolis on tissues exposed to radiation. Furthermore, thanks to its flavonoids, the antioxidant action of propolis binds free oxygen radicals.
The anaesthetic properties of propolis are due to its volatile oils (essential oils) and is recommended for local anesthetic action (e.g. insect bites).
Propolis is effective in combating pests such trichomonada, tripanosoma etc. This it achieves by inhibiting the formation of the proteins of these organisms.
One possible explanation for this action of propolis is inhibition of the formation of prostaglandin, which is responsible for the onset of inflammation.

meli

A completely raw product of an arduous physicochemical process and a complete food. Its immense nutritional value has never been disputed. The benefit of its direct application on the skin is equally beyond dispute.

Honey ingredients: The components of honey vary according to its type, but are on average:

  • Water 17%
  • Natural sugars  79,5%
  • Vitamins: A, beta carotene, thiamine B1, B2 Riboflavin, Niacin B3, B5, pantothenic acid, B6, pyridoxine, biotin B8, B9 folate, C, D, E, K
  • Metals: calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, sulfur compounds, phosphorus, zinc
  • Amino Acids
  • Antioxidants

Honey contains many substances with antioxidant activity, such as flavonoids and other phenolic compounds, peptides, enzymes (e.g., catalase), organic acids, minerals and trace elements. It has been shown to have significant antibacterial activity, due to the high concentration of sugars, the low pH, and the content of the antimicrobial substances. Honey inhibits the growth of many harmful microorganisms: streptococcus, staphylococcus, listeria, etc.

Ingredients: : The complete chemical composition of beeswax is unknown. Substances that have been identified are:

  • Fatty acids
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Various esters

Properties of wax relevant to its application on the skin are:

  • Conditioning
  • Antiseptic
  • Healing
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Moisturizing
  • Soothing
  • Regenerating

It creates a protective film on the skin surface without clogging the pores, allowing latent breathing and preventing dehydration.
