Bee beautiful: Valmont’s new skincare range uses precious substances from beehives

Swiss skincare brand, Valmont, has just launched a new collection under its L’Elixir des Glaciers range. Eponymously named Essence of Bees, the collection harnesses the natural goodness of beehives in a sustainable way.

Through a perfect blend of nature’s bounty and next-gen technology, the Essence of Bees complex combines a mixture of honey, propolis and royal jelly in oily form.

Each of the ingredients is renowned in its own right as a potent element for skincare and has even found mention in ancient Greek philosophy. While Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, waxed eloquent about the moisturising properties of honey, the famous philosopher Aristotle attributed skin-purifying qualities to propolis. And the most precious product from the hive, regenerating royal jelly, was considered to be an essential constituent of the mythical ‘ambrosia’, the liquor of immortality drunk by the gods of Olympus.

While Classical ‘ambrosia’ may have been a legend, Valmont’s researchers may just have discovered the ambrosia for skin through their three new offerings – Cure Majestueuse, Masque Majestueux and Sérum Majestueux Vos Yeux.
Beauty enthusiasts can lay their hands on the premium items at Valmont counters across Hong Kong, including Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols and SOGO.
