For Healthier Looking Lips
Propolis is a compound from the buds of certain trees. It is generally obtained from beehives. Propolis has a long history of use as medicine. Today it is commonly used in beauty and skincare products. Propolis has been shown to be possibly effective for cold sores, skin injuries, mouth surgery-related issues and more.
Terry Naturally uses this as a main ingredient in its Herpetino Lip Cream, a hypoallergenic topical cream that is designed to reduce the appearance of unsightly blemishes for healthier looking lips.
The propolis used in this formula, GH2002, is an active clinical strength form that is pure, wax-free and highly absorbable.

What is the difference between royal jelly, beeswax, and propolis?
Royal jelly is a nutrient-rich food made by honey bees to feed larvae or to queens. For larvae, it is only fed for a short time, while queens rely on this food for their entire lives. Royal jelly is considered to have health properties of its own for humans, because of its amino acid, vitamin, enzyme, and trace mineral content, but it is not the same thing as propolis.Beeswax is often confused with propolis, but they are not the same. Beeswax is used to to construct the cell walls of the hive, while propolis is used to assemble the hive (it is sometimes called “bee glue”) and protect the hive from bacteria and other invaders. While beeswax is used in foods and other edible applications in very small amounts, it is not a nutrient source for humans. Because propolis is used, in part, to cement the hive together, it can be found combined with beeswax, but the best propolis is beeswax free.Propolis is scraped from trees that surround the hive. Bees gather it with their mandibles, and carry it back to the hive. Because these resins are typically made from tree saps and other plant resins that are part of that plant’s defense mechanism, propolis contains many beneficial compounds that can support well-being of the hive, and the appearance of your lips.
Why is it important that GH2002 Propolis is free of beeswax?
Propolis is a soothing compound made from plant bioflavonoids collected by bees. They often use as a defensive “glue” to protect the health of the hive. In fact, the word “propolis” is a Greek term meaning “for the city” or “defender of the city”. Because propolis is often mixed with wax in the hive, it needs to be purified in order to be truly effective. Too much wax, and it simply can’t absorb for the best benefits. GH2002 Propolis is a specially-purified and clinically-tested propolis that protects the integrity and appearance of the lips.
