I've just received the Lip Custom Kit and can hardly wait to whip up something to replace my LipFusion XL, which is no longer in my budget. I understand the other ingredients, but was wondering, what is Propolis Extract? I've been reading all the lip threads, but found no mention of it.

Also, is 4% DMAE serum okay to add to my lip potion? Or would it be problematic for something that's basically oil based?

Thanks, everyone,

Susan

Propolis is made by bees, a powerful antibacterial and antiviral. Use it only if you have problems with herpes labialis, a virus. Or you may like its very strange smell.

Thanks much, Hannah...

I don't have that issue, so I'll hold off on adding it for now. However, I am intrigued by the interesting smell part...

I just smelled it. Wow. It is certainly, umm, unique. To be honest...I kind of like it. It smells like it means business.

By the way, Hannah, I'm getting to know and beginning to actually love the smells of your products and ingredients. At first, I didn't quite know what to make of them, but I'm finding them all growing on me....ESPECIALLY because they WORK!

Kind thoughts,

Susan

I love the smell of propolis extract! I have tried putting a couple of drops in my regular cream (canvas, coQ10, coconut endosperm, NAP) just for the smell. Also, since I tend to get acne on my chin, I figure the anti-bacterial effects can't hurt.

Hannah, I looked for Propolis extract, but my search came up zero. Do you not sell it any more???
