The core ingredient of our products is Propolis, which is collected from our bees, located exclusively in the area of Plastira’s Lake in Karditsa. In addition to Propolis, ingredients from the Greek nature are collected to create our products. Beeswax, honey, olive oil, lupine, achilles, wild rose and mountain herbs, interact with Propolis and give us products that except from enhancing and maintaining beauty they protect the skin from mild skin diseases. .
Our ingredients come from organic cultivations and are chosen through an evaluation process by our research & development department so as to ensure the high quality of our products. Mybee implements accredited control systems of national, international organizations and our products are certified as natural (National Organization for Medicines, CPNP Notification, dermatological tests, HALAL) .
In collaboration with the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos“ we provide scientific evidence of the beneficial properties of our Propolis.

We are members of the 1% for the Planet organization, returning 1% of our revenues to environmental organizations.
We are actively involved in the non-profit company “SOS-ΒΕΕ“ which aims το communicate the way bees are protected and to promote the role and value of the bee in the ecosystem.
The word “Propolis” is derived from the Greek pro (for “in front of” or “at the entrance to”) and polis (“community” or “city”) and means a substance in defense of the hive.
Prevent diseases and parasites from entering the hive, and to inhibit fungal and bacterial growth.
Propolis is a natural remedy used extensively since ancient times as an antiseptic and as a wound healing agent.
Egyptians knew very well the valuable properties of Propolis and used it to make cosmetics.
Greek physicians (Aristotles, Dioscorides) were familiar with the medicinal properties of Propolis.
Propolis was employed as an antiseptic and cicatrizing in wound treatment and as a mouth disinfectant, with these uses being perpetuated in the Middle Ages and among Arab physicians.
Propolis is used today in medicine and dentistry as well as in cosmetics creation.
Lake Plastiras as well as the wider region features a rich ecosystem, which is ideal for the development of beekeeping and the production of high quality propolis.
The harmony and beauty of the landscape gives the impression that the lake is natural, and only the existence of the dam indicates that it is the result of an artificial project.
The lake was formed in 1959 when the dam was completed on the southern edge of the plateau of Nevropolis in the county of Karditsa.
The continental climate of the region and pristine countryside contributed to the development of an exceptional flora.
The most representative species in the region is the broadleaved oak, chestnut and the spruce. There are even species of herbaceous vegetation such as ferns, geraniums, cyclamen, crocuses, narcissi, orchid species and a wide variety of herbs such as lemon balm, balsam, laurel, sea buckthorn, thyme, oregano, nettle etc.
