Royal Jelly is a natural secretion of honeybees that is used to feed larvae and adult queen bees. This special substance is extremely nourishing, containing a wide range of beneficial nutrients and components including collagen, mineral salts, vitamins A, C, D and E, and essential fatty acids. Royal Jelly is often sold as a health supplement, but is also used frequently in skin care formulations. Since Royal Jelly is said to have rejuvenating properties it is often chosen as an ingredient in mature skin and anti-aging creams, lotions, and masks. Royal Jelly is often sold in a powdered form, or as a Water Soluble Extract.
