The NATURAL INGREDIENTS we use
Honey has been valued throughout history for its moisturizing and healing properties. The sugars in honey act as humectant (drawing moisture from the air), making it highly moisturizing - perfect for nourishing dry, sensitive skin. The healing properties of honey come in when the enzyme glucose oxidase mixes with water or comes in contact with the skin, producing hydrogen peroxide - which is know to be an anti-bacterial agent. These, plus other therapeutic benefits, make honey a wonderful ingredient in skincare products.
