OLEOS uncovers extract harvested by bees for anti-aging
Oleos has carried out an eco-extraction process on waxes, vitamins, acids and unsaponifiable matter from Propolis, a resinous substance harvested by bees that contains anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle properties.

Featuring numerous biological properties, Organic Propolis OA is the first oily premium hyper-active anti-wrinkle complex for skin care products​”, revealed a company spokesperson.

Highly concentrated in anti-oxidant and anti-free radical molecules, Propolis possesses an important emollient and restoring capacity to enhance elastin and collagen synthesis.

Powerful anti-aging active

Polyphenolic antioxidants, derived from plants assist in preventing ROS damage by scavenging free radicals and are the natural and effective solution to reduce cell oxidation and free radical damages.

Regarded as preventing the harmful effects of ROS on cells which contribute to skin ageing, Organic Propolis OA features high levels of these antioxidants, making it “a powerful anti-ageing active”, ​according to the natural ingredients company.

In the oléoactif, the polyphenol content is almost 20 times higher than in vegetable refined or virgin oils due to the efficiency of the Oléo-Eco- Extraction process patented by Oleos.

The substance also contains an oxidative stress protection ten times higher than vitamin E as it is concentrated in many synergistic antioxidant molecules, a key ingredient in anti-aging aids.

Tried and tested

Oleos carried out in vivo anti-wrinkle screening tests on volunteers aged between 45 and 65 years old. A cream containing 3 per cent Organic Propolis OA was applied twice a day over a 28 day period on a crow’s foot, whilst a placebo cream was applied on another for the same timeframe to study the effects.

A fringe projection followed by cutaneous topography gave us positive results for the Organic Propolis OA​and none for the placebo, with a significant reduction of -23 per cent of the main wrinkle area in this timeframe​”, concluded a spokesperson.
