Bee Products


Bee Products

Propolis is a resin that is gathered and, in part, metabolised by bees for lining their beehives. Its use in medicine has been known for several years, as both a disinfectant and as an antibacterial.

Propolis' melting point is 30-35°c. It is brown in colour and has a vanilla type odour. It is a complex mixture of chemical compounds, 20 of which have been separated and identified. Most of these compounds are flavanoids.

Propolis extracts can be used in cosmetic products for treating impure skins. Can also be used in deodorants, emulsions and after-shave lotions, and in hygiene products for the scalp, and in toothpastes etc.

Fragrances and Flavours


Fragrances and Flavours

For over 80 years Esperis have been compounding these materials, initially for personal care products but now also for many other applications.

Most products are supplied from stock but a custom manufacturing service is available to meet any customer requirement.

They are particularly active in the formulation of natural products particularly for cosmetic and food use.

Hormofruits


Hormofruits

Hormo Fruits and Dermo Fruits are made from fresh fruits and vegetables, preserved with vitamin C and they have a very good shelf life if kept out of direct sunlight.

Hormo Fruits are liquid extracts with their own characteristic odour and colour extracted and concentrated by a process which preserves all the inherent natural properties of the raw material. Thus they preserve, and contain a relatively high proportion of, humectant vitamins, pectins, fruit and vegetable acids, amino acids and many other active materials usually destroyed in juice manufacturing processes.

Hydrolysed Proteins


Hydrolysed Proteins

Esperis are currently producing a specific range of these very interesting products and further details of their properties and applications are available on request.

Please visit our website for more information on hydrolysed proteins.

Lanolins and Derivatives


Lanolins and Derivatives

From the best quality pesticide free lanolin, Esperis manufacture pharmaceutical grade derivatives. These products are especially useful in the formulation of moisturising skin creams for personal care use and pharmaceuticals.

Liposomes


Liposomes

The liposomes are microscopic cells, with their exteriors consisting of a phospholipid membrane. The external part of the membrane is hydrophilic in nature whilst the interior is hydrophobic, thus allowing the introduction of active cosmetic ingredients into the cell. The similarity between the structure of the components of skin and the phospholipid membrane allows penetration of the liposome and hence better utilisation of the active ingredient.

We currently offer: Liposomes Vitamin - A, C & E, and mixtures of these, based on soya phospholipids. They can be used, as such on the skin by massage until completely absorbed or dispersed in an aqueous gel.
