What is Aloe Propolis used for? Aloe Propolis creme is a thick, silky cream that contains pure Aloe gel and Propolis extract alongside other ingredients to create a rich, moisturising cream with healing benefits.
While Aloe Vera has long been known to heal and soothe, the benefits of propolis are perhaps less well known.
So, what is Propolis and what is Aloe Propolis used for?
Propolis is a compound that bees produce by mixing the collected sap of evergreen trees with beeswax and their own saliva (don’t be put off-stick with me). This mixture is called Propolis and is used by the bees as a coating for their hives.
Propolis is thought to be antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory and it looks like it offers the hives protection from bacteria.
Alongside these fantastic properties Propolis also contains antifungal compounds and studies have found that Propolis speeds up healing in burns traumas.
Combine that with the healing properties of Aloe Vera and it’s easy to see why Aloe Propolis Creme is so popular.
