Bee is for beauty, especially your skin’s. A deeper look at our Essence of Bees complex and how it helps dry skin. 


Luxury skincare is all abuzz with the relaunch of lElixir des Glaciers’ majestic Essence of Bees collection dedicated to dry, maturing and damaged skin.Named after its primary active ingredient, the Essence of Bees complex, let’s take a look at what makes this complex so special and how it works to beautify your skin.



The Essence of Bees Complex - honey, propolis and royal jelly 


Three natural products from Swiss beehives, selected for their inherent nutritional and healing virtues so beneficial for the skin. Brought together and potentialized through cutting-edge cellular cosmetic technologies, they constitute the heart and soul of the Essence of Bees complex for skincare efficacy raised to the power of three. 





Honey to moisturize and nourish your skin 


Used for centuries as a natural remedy and beauty treatment, honey is a natural humectant that attracts, retains and locks moisture into the skin. This extra boost of hydration helps smooth over wrinkles and fine lines for a refreshed and radiant-looking complexion. Honey is also rich in antioxidants, such as flavonoids and phenolic acid, that help protect your skin from the free radicals that can break down collagen and result in premature aging of the skin. 



Propolis to cleanse and repair 


Also known as “bee glue”, honeybees collect this resin-like substance from tree buds, sap and other botanical sources and use it to seal and protect their hives from external threats. Propolis acts in a similar manner on the skin, protecting it from bacteria, fungi and viruses with its anti-bacterial effectiveness. A powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and regenerative ingredient, bee glue cleanses and soothes, perfecting and maintaining your skin’s appearance. 



Royal jelly to regenerate and soothe


Produced by worker bees and fed to their queen to ensure her growth and longevity, royal jelly is often considered to be the most precious of all ingredients from the hive, with good reason. Rich in nourishing vitamins, minerals, amino and fatty acids, it also boasts a multitude of properties that fight bacteria, reduce inflammation, boost the immune system, provide antioxidants, moisturize, and slow down the aging process. If ever there was a beauty benefactor for skin, it would have to be royal jelly. 




The power of science to potentialize the power of bees .


As amazing and exciting as active ingredients may look on paper, bringing their full therapeutic potential to life in a skincare formula is a real science. Obviously we can’t hand out the entire Essence of Bees “recipe” but we can share some key scientific elements that contribute to its smashing success. 


An ecologically-sound engineering feat 


To transform the raw materials from Switzerland's protected beehives into a complex for skincare that treats even the driest skin, we sought out the expertise of engineers specializing in the chemistry of oils and deployed our patented Ecocert-certified lipophilic extraction process. A purely physical procedure that generates minimal pollution and does not rely on synthetic solvents but rather a natural solvent – Rosa Moschata oil, sourced from our Alpine gardens.A transformer of active ingredients (and active ingredient in its own right), Rosa Moschata oil harnesses a combination of controlled microwaves and ultra-low temperatures to convert honey and propolis into oils. Following ultrasound micronization, royal jelly is incorporated into the complex. The beneficial properties, effectiveness and bioavailability of each active ingredient are not only maintained but optimized. 



Heavenly textures. The icing on the cake. 


We dedicate significant time and resources to texture research, development and design. Sensoriality, the pleasure of applying your favorite product and thoroughly enjoying the feel of it as it comes in contact with your skin, is an integral part of the holistic Valmont experience. 


L’Elixir des Glaciers’ Essence of Bees Collection is a prime example with three marvelously sensual textures that deliver the nourishing treasures of the hive comfortably to the skin.
