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.
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.
• If necessary, this solution can be mixed with water and used as a facial emulsion for skin problems such as acne.
• 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.
• This propolis solution is viscous. It can therefore take about 30 seconds for the drops to come out of the bottle for the first few uses. Please keep the bottle upright and do not shake.
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!
Ingredients (INCI): glycerin (vegetable), propolis (contains 12mg/ml polyphenols from propolis). Without alcohol. These Propolis drops, also called Propolis Tincture, are made based on vegetable glycerin. It is used to keep the propolis liquid. The vegetable glycerin is derived from the fatty acids of soy, coconuts and various cereals. This propolis tincture without alcohol does not contain allergenic substances.
Alcohol-free Propolis drops can contain max. 10% to 15% propolis due to the poor solvability of the pure propolis. This Propolis solution includes 10% pure Propolis.
Our Propolis Tincture Tip: Particularly suitable for cosmetic use on the skin in case of skin impurities and problems or in the oral cavity for dental and gum care. Can be diluted with water if necessary.
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.
All products are manufactured under strict control and, of course, are not tested on animals. Do not use in case of allergy or intolerance to propolis. Do not store within reach of children.
