Today, I would like to share with you another skincare hero of mine, it is the SBC Propolis Skincare Gel.  Last year, I introduced you to their Collagen range which is still a firm favourite, and yet, at this time of year, I am repeatedly reaching for Propolis.

What Is Propolis?

Propolis is the “bee glue” that protects and holds together the hive but this sticky substance has many health benefits as well!

Propolis is thought to have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties and appears to provide protection from some bacteria, viruses, and fungi.  More than 300 compounds in propolis have been identified and the majority of these compounds are forms of polyphenols. Polyphenols are antioxidants that fight disease and repair damage in the body.  Propolis, specifically contains the polyphenols called flavonoids. Flavonoids are produced in plants as a form of protection. They’re commonly found in foods thought to have antioxidant properties, including: fruits, green tea, vegetables and red wine.

Preserve, protect and repair skin with SBC’s Propolis Skincare Gel, for healthy-looking skin that feels as good as it looks. This skincare gel is infused with natural propolis to care for your skin and nurture stressed or sensitive skin. It is a light weight, water-based gel which absorbs effortlessly into the skin, and can be used on the face and body. Versatile and easy to apply, it can be used as a mask or primer, as well as a face and body moisturiser. Absorbs quickly for instant hydration. Recommended for all skin types, including skin with minor complaints and is beneficial for sensitive skin.  It smells divine, a woody base is always a winner with me.

For teenage and problematic skin, apply to any areas of breakouts and can be applied to the chest and back.

Heat rash – apply a thick layer and allow to absorb.

Cracked heels – massage into the feet to help soothe and hydrate.

Cuticles and nails – apply to hands and feet.
