12 Odd Beauty Products Throughout History



Also called "bee glue," propolis is a brownish resin collected by bees from tree buds and bark to fill crevices and varnish the hive. Due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anesthetic properties, bee glue can be found in many "all natural" lip balms, cosmetics, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, and toothpastes. But be careful -- just because a product is "all natural" doesn't mean it's safe for everyone. Allergic reactions to propolis are fairly common.
