Skin Soothing Lotion Bar
Is the lotion bar soap? How do I use it?
No, the lotion bar isn't soap! It is to be used in the place of lotion and works best if used after washing the hands/face/body but before drying off to lock in the moisture and provide a barrier of protection from the elements and environment. Rub in hands to disperse over skin as needed. Use for your primary skin conditioner/protectant or use in addition to your normal skin care hygiene routine.
What’s so great about the lotion bar?
Our lotion bar contains a compound that honey bees collect and process from tree resins called propolis. They use it to sanitize the inside of their hive and seal cracks.
Propolis has confirmed antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, anesthetic, and healing properties. It has also been effectively used in treatment of dermatological, laryngological, and gynecological problems, neurodegenerative diseases, in wound healing, and in treatment of burns and ulcers.
Check out our Skin Soothing Lotion Bar! We are plastic free and PETA certified cruelty-free. Comes in personal use metal flip top tin packaging that is reusable and recyclable.
A Brief History Of Propolis
The history of bees and their products can be traced back to c. 13,000 BC. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians were aware of the healing properties of propolis and made extensive use of it as a medicine. Scientists recently have been able to prove that propolis is as active and important as our forefathers thought.
What is Propolis?
Beekeepers Secret - The Bee Resin (Propolis) is a nutritious, powerful antibiotic, antiviral, and antifungal agent that sanitizes the interior of the hive and has been used by humans throughout millennia for its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. The word propolis is derived from Greek, in which pro stands for “for/or in defense” and polis for “city,” which means this natural product is used in defense of the hive (1 Ghisalberti, 1979).
Propolis also contains 21 different flavonoids and antioxidants to help control free radicals. It is high in B-complex vitamins and contains vitamins C, E, and provitamin A. It is rich in amino acids, fats and minerals such as zinc, manganese, copper, and iron.
