Bees collect resin from buds, leaves and tree bark to make propolis. In the beehive, the resins are mixed with wax and pollen and made supple with a special saliva secretion.
For the production of our propolis solution, raw propolis is dissolved in pure, undenatured alcohol of pharmacist quality in a process lasting several weeks. In order to achieve the propolis content of 40%, we use propolis extract for production, not raw propolis.
Our propolis solution is of the highest quality and is professionally manufactured. For external use, our propolis solution has been dermatologically tested in an independent institute.
Many of our long-standing regular customers are enthusiastic and would no longer want to do without the propolis tincture in their medicine cabinet. Test yourself!
Application: Particularly suitable for cosmetic use on the skin with skin impurities and problems or in the mouth for tooth and gum care. The application in the mouth and the targeted application to skin areas (e.g. warts, wounds, etc.) can be done well with a cotton swab. Please make sure that the propolis solution applied to the skin is always completely absorbed and dried.
• Propolis is not soluble in water. Nevertheless, it can be mixed with water, e.g. for gargling. This results in gray streaks that do not represent any loss of quality. Please note that the vessel used will turn brown.
• Attention: Do not bring propolis into contact with clothing or other objects. It can only be removed from smooth surfaces with alcohol. Alcohol also helps with clothing, but only for yourself, because you cannot remove propolis from clothing. Only scissors will help. Therefore, always make sure that the propolis solution applied to the skin is always completely absorbed and dried.
Important note on PAHs in propolis
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs for short) generally appear in fine dust and are considered to be potentially carcinogenic. Therefore, despite the lack of a statutory maximum amount regulation for bee products, they should also be kept as low as possible in propolis. Among other things, through the use of smokers, the so-called PAHs get into the beehives and thus also increasingly into the propolis and beeswax.
In cooperation with our manufacturer, the extractors and the authorities involved, we began some time ago to optimize the production of our propolis tinctures. The aim was to minimize the PAHs in our solutions. This includes stricter purchasing controls with regard to the PAHs for raw materials and extracts as well as optimized processing and cleaning of the propolis solutions.
Our extractors achieve this, among other things, by means of innovative filtration techniques, which make it possible to filter out insoluble fine dust, sometimes containing PAHs, from the solutions even better than before.
As a result of this significant improvement in quality, however, the aroma and color of the propolis tinctures may differ slightly from the qualities you are familiar with up to now. The color is sometimes a little lighter and the aroma a little softer. However, these changes do not in any way affect the amount of propolis in our tinctures.
Result: Our tinctures / solutions are, simply put, cleaner or purer with the same propolis content! With these quality improvement and assurance measures, we make trading this valuable product even safer. We are of course at your disposal for further detailed questions on this topic at any time.
