We have made our choices
No beauty without honesty
The building block of APICEUTICALS philosophy is honest choices. We don’t put anything in our products that is not good and safe enough to eat. The bee-ingredients we use are the same we and our children, consume. No shortcuts, no cutting corners, no compromises.
We choose to develop products with potent and effective formulas without compromising our sky-high standards of safety. We select carefully our suppliers to make sure we get premium-quality ingredients and we instantly reject those that clinical studies have shown that are potentially harmful to our health. Although the cosmetic industry is highly unregulated regarding the safety of ingredients, we have excluded over 2,000 ingredients from our formulas that are accused for being skin irritants, skin penetrators or carcinogenic. We constantly, update our NO list with every new scientific information that comes to light, ready to adjust our formulas swiftly and accordingly.
No shortcuts, no cutting corners, no compromises.
We say things as they are.
Fair and square.
We, intentionally, don’t use the expression ‘harmful or bad chemicals’, because for us is misleading, as everything around us is chemistry (e.g. water H20). We prefer to speak with honesty and say the things as they are and this is the reason why we have chosen ‘GREEN CHEMISTRY’.

Is it enough?
Beauty from within
Our product philosophy is the same as our life philosophy: It’s what you give that you take back. And it applies to everything, beginning with our skin, the largest organ on our body. We want to make sure you feed your skin and your body with the purest, natural, organic and most beneficial nutrients. It’s the only way to ensure we look and feel radiant and healthy. And since beauty starts from within, we have exact same approach with our sleep, our food, the air we breathe, the words we use and the sounds we hear. The holistic approach to health and well-being is what motivates us to create products that don’t just address beauty but also truth, sustainability, harmony and kindness. It’s what makes us beautiful after all!
