The buzz-worthy ingredient Propolis


Skincare has replaced foundation and lipsticks in place of the continued mask policies across the country. The summer skincare trends have emphasized incorporating hydrating ingredients to our lineups with a focus on vitamin C, niacinamide, glycerin, and our favorite, propolis. Propolis’s growth in popularity is for a good reason. Propolis will fight mascne before it starts, and its antibacterial properties will not let the acne win. 

What Is Propolis?

Propolis is a medicinal ingredient rich in antioxidants that calms the skin and reduces the look of redness. It turns out the soothing, ultra-gentle ingredient supports skin healing and reinforces skin barrier function, making it perfect for skin damaged by acne or irritation. It’s great for acne-prone skin experiencing redness, flaking, and irritation caused by drying blemish treatments like benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. 

Must have: COSRX’s Propolis Light Ampoule

One of our favorite propolis products is COSRX’s Propolis Light Ampoule, a lightweight gel serum great for repairing skin damaged by breakouts, dehydration, or irritation. 

This serum contains 83.5% black bee propolis, a powerful, nutrient-rich ingredient that bees make from tree sap. 

This serum helps soothe the skin, boost its natural repair processes and give skin a plumper look. It’s light enough for all skin types but especially suited to damaged, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. 

This serum is part of an entire family of propolis-infused skincare products and works well with COSRX’s Propolis Synergy Toner and Propolis Light Cream to soothe and nourish the skin. Landing Tip:  Propolis could also be used as a perfect base for makeup, It’s hydrating, and it will leave a dewy finish. Below you can watch Beatrice the bee from the brand COSRX explain what propolis is:
