Propolis – A potent anti-wrinkle and antimicrobial ingredient made by the worker bees. Bees use propolis to build, repair, and strengthen the hive. They seal openings with it, forming a barrier against pathogens thanks to antimicrobial properties. Applied to the skin, propolis extract effectively scavenges free radicals, protects from photo-induced oxidative stress and visibly fills and smooths wrinkles and fine lines.

Castor bean oil reduces inflammation and increases skin immunity.
