Apodea's founders, the Rossi family, who practise biodynamic beekeeping on their Umbrian farm, started making the now best-selling Propolis Ointment (a universal balm containing 10% propolis) for friends and family in the early 1980s. They gradually developed more cosmetics containing apiary products - honey, propolis, beeswax - and are still adding to the Apodea organic certified, eco-friendly range, but only when satisfied each new line delivers the efficacious qualities and characteristics they and their customers demand.
Apodea stockists range from small Italian pharmacies (as above left) and erboristerie herbal apothecaries to glossy Japanese department and eco-beauty stores - where Apodea has become a cult brand featuring in Vogue Nippon, Elle Japon, Harper's Japan and healthy-living magazines.
Apodea continues to focus on quality and small-batch production to ensure high standards from bee to balm!
