What happens when you combine science, environmentalism and effective marketing? Boom, The Ordinary, a name that immediately became household even to people that don’t really care about skincare. That happened not only because their prices are the cheapest on the market but because they make products that actually work. No, The Ordinary didn’t invent new technologies that do magic on your skin. If you quickly google it you will find that there’s other brands with similar products. That’s not the main point though. The point is that The Ordinary made as effective products- if not more effective, for a tiny fraction of the price. In my opinion they are making a revolution. They are proving that skincare can be for everyone. If one brand is really doing a lot to make people’s skin better, that is The Ordinary.
In neotropical regions, in addition to a large variety of trees, bees may also gather resin from flowers in the genera Clusia and Dalechampia , which are the only known plant genera that produce floral resins to attract pollinators.  Clusia resin contains polyprenylated benzophenones.    In some areas of Chile , propolis contains viscidone , a terpene from Baccharis shrubs,  and in Brazil, naphthoquinone epoxide has recently been isolated from red propolis,  and prenylated acids such as 4-hydroxy-3,5-diprenyl cinnamic acid have been documented.  An analysis of propolis from Henan , China found sinapinic acid , isoferulic acid , caffeic acid , and chrysin , with the first three compounds demonstrating antibacterial properties.  Also, Brazilian red propolis, largely derived from Dalbergia ecastaphyllum plant resin, has high relative percentages of the isoflavonoids 3-hydroxy-8,9-dimethoxypterocarpan and medicarpin .  Other flavonoids commonly present include galangin and pinocembrin .  Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) is also a component of some varieties of propolis from New Zealand .
