Propolis cream - in
Pharmacy and Cosmetics, alternative Medicine, holistic therapies and Natural
As cosmetic industry
want to offer low budget products, it is creating now cremes, lotions and
fragrances without natural ingredients good for skin care such as beeswax,
organic herbal oils; cosmetic industry is using poor and cancerogenic compounds
instead such as Paraffinum Liqu., microcristaline wax (Mikroparaffin) or
vaseline, PEG (Polyethylenglykol), Aluminium, Benzoeacid. Even expensive
cosmetics may contain substances who support tumors in respiratory tract.
bee products used
for alternative medicine, apitherapy, holistic healing, homeopathic therapies
and cosmetics need to be without residuals. Beeswax, partitions, comb in
the comb and propolis cream, sold by trading companies or ebay, may contain
paraffine and DEET. Artificial comb honey in cassettes made of wood or
plastic also contain artificial beeswax. Further

Propolis cream - organic
propolis cream, chemical analysis of propolis, GMO's
More important than
chemical analysis of products such as propolis cream, raw-propolis, propolis-tincture,
beeswax, comb honey, comb in the comb, raw honey, beesbread is the origin
of the raw materials, the way beekeepers keep their bees and which kind
of hives they use. This fact is overseen in many cases by trading companies
and producers of propolis products. Propolis products offered in supermarkets
or drug stores sometimes contain not only pollutant loads or enrichments
with harmful substances but also cancer causing and biotechnological produced
sugar substitutes as isomalt or aspartame.
The quality of food
and beeproducts such as propolis creme cannot be clearified by common analytic
methods and techniques. Analytic procedures are too crude; thats the reason
why foodstuff inspectors were often easy game for the swindlers.
Also methods of harvesting
propolis and pollen are very often anything but according the needs of
bees. Even socalled organic propolis and beeswax may be contaminated with
beeswax that contains low amounts of pesticides or paraffin. Thus, raw
honey, beeswax, beesbread, pollen and propolis may be contaminated, especially
if beekeeping methods are not according standards of Centre for ecological
Apiculture. Further reading and references see
