Royal Jelly is known as a reliable skincare treatment for all skin types, whether dry, sensitive and irritated or oily and acne-prone. The jelly is derived from an elixir produced specifically by male worker bees. It is high in amino acids, proteins and other nutrients to promote the health of skin naturally.
The moisturizing properties of the jelly have been acknowledged historically by the ancient Egyptians who applied it as some of the earliest known natural anti-aging skin care. The jelly sustained the superior health of their skin in the extreme desert climate of North Africa.
