Honey is the crown jewel of soap ingredients. World-renowned for its anti- bacterial properties, it can also alleviate mild cases of acne and skin redness. It opens and unclogs pores naturally, thereby preventing skin’s premature aging. Propolis extract is a resin-like wax substance created by bees out of coniferous trees. Bees use propolis to patch up their hives and protect their offspring from bacteria. Propolis’ anti-inflammatory properties can help wounds heal, and it is also a natural antiseptic that can cleanse the skin of harmful bacteria. Propolis also acts as a humectant and helps lock moisture into the skin, making it more healthy and smoother to the touch.
