Abstract: Most pharmaceutical products are mainly based on chemical ingredients and this may cause various side effects especially to those who have issues with their skin such as sensitive skin. Therefore, Meliphoenix Serum is developed to promote natural based healing remedy which is beneficial for its great antioxidant and wound healing properties. This miracle serum contains stingless bee honey and date seeds as its main ingredients. All the therapeutic properties of both sources (stingless bee honey and date seeds) play an integral role as the main contributor to wound healing properties of this serum.Stingless bee honey or well known as ‘kelulut’ is a type of honey that is naturally produced by stingless bees. It has been used since ancient times across the globe. Several studies on stingless bee honey have pointed out the numerous therapeutic profiles of the materials in terms of its antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, as well as moisturizing properties. Antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties found in stingless bee honey could overcome the bacterial contamination and thus improve the healing rate. It may also protect the skin tissue from highly toxic inflammatory mediators. The moisturizing properties of the honey could improve wound healing by promoting angiogenesis and oxygen circulation. The hidden potential of date seed as antioxidant will help to accelerate and boost up the wound healing rate. Therefore, Meliphoenix Serum is one of the highly potential marketable remedy as its main ingredients are naturally developed and provide numerous benefits to skin.
