Ancient Recipe Egyptian Skin Cream
A 30ml tin – Fresh From The Hive from an ancient Egyptian recipe.
Our ancient recipe Egyptian skin cream beeswax uses only six 100% natural ingredients, most of which come from our very own hives in England. These ingredients are olive oil, beeswax, raw Honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly. That’s it, nothing else. No nasty chemicals, preservatives, colourings or fragrances. Each one of those ingredients are beneficial and have a soothing and moisturising effect on your skin.
Our natural beeswax, ancient recipe Egyptian skin cream truly is a premium handmade product.
Our Egyptian skin cream can be used as a face moisturiser, an eye cream and a shaving balm. It will soften rough elbows and the dry cracked heels of your feet when used daily. It can help heal sunburn and treat cuts and grazes. Eczema and psoriasis can be soothed the natural way, although we always recommend you visiting your GP for any ongoing skin conditions. Another particular favourite use of this product is as a lip balm. Hands and cuticles will be softened when used on your hands. It can even work as a natural make up remover.
This beeswax skin cream has so many uses, it is effective at treating your skin from head to toe. Just rub a small amount into the palm of your hand until it turns into an oil and then gently apply onto the skin. A little goes a long way so use sparingly.
Our natural beeswax skin cream ingredients are literally fresh from the hive with minimal processing.
Olive Oil: Naturally, olive oil is packed with three major anti-aging antioxidants: vitamin E, polyphenols, and phytosterols as well as hydrating squalene, making it superb for skin and nails.
Beeswax: Beeswax when applied to the skin forms a protective barrier on the skin from the environmental elements. It locks in the skins moisture helping to prevent dryness. Beeswax is made and secreted naturally by the bees to make the hexagonal comb cells in the hive in which they store their honey. We use our own fresh wax collected from our hives that is pure cosmetic grade quality.
Raw Honey: Honey is naturally antibacterial and full of antioxidants. It is extremely moisturising and soothing. Honey is the nectar collected from flowers and the bees mix it with their own enzyme to turn it into honey. We use our own pure English raw honey that has not been pasteurised or heat treated like the cheap honey you find in supermarkets. Our bees collect our honey from English wild flowers and blossoms.
Pollen: Bee pollen has natural antibacterial and antibiotic properties that can be beneficial when treating acne. Pollen is a substance produced by the anthers of seed-bearing plants that the bees collect to feed their young in the hive.
Propolis: Propolis is the resin that is collected from various trees and buds by the bees and is then mixed with their own discharges and wax. They use it to seal cracks and holes in the hive. Again, this ingredient is very high in antioxidents and is a natural disinfectant against bacteria. Propolis is now a major focus in many scientific fields for its healing properties and why it may be effective in treating acne. These studies are now looking into propolis for it’s cancer preventing properties. Propolis will help balance and sooth problematic skin as it is thought to accelerate cell growth and decongest skin pores providing the perfect basis for wound healing.
The ancient Egyptians used propolis in the mummification process as it was a great protector and preserver as well as using it for their own skin treatments. Even in ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the most admired figure in the history of medicine, would use propolis to heal infections and wounds.
The propolis we use comes directly from our own hives. We do not use any alcohol to extract our propolis, ensuring kindness on your skin.
Royal Jelly: Royal Jelly contains complex B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes and minerals. It increases moisture content in the skin which helps treat dry damaged skin. Royal Jelly is a special substance secreted by honeybee workers that is fed by them to the young bee that they have chosen to be the next queen in the beehive. Royal Jelly is highly prized and sought after as it is produced by the bees in such small quantities. We use only our own genuine, unprocessed pure Royal Jelly.
The ancient Egyptians were among human civilisations earliest beekeepers. They were also aware of the wondrous and natural, healing ingredients that can be derived from a beehive. We at Fresh From The Hive are extremely proud to be able to work with our own beehives and use our own ingredients to make some of the marvellous products that the Pharaoh’s would have used for their skin care.
