🍯 Honey

Honey is the most famous bee product. But apart from food, it is a secret ingredient in many skincare routines of the most beautiful women in the world.

Honey helps to balance bacteria on the skin which helps cure acne, eczema and psoriasis.

It works simply by speeding up the skin cells' healing process. This reduces inflammation and helps keep skin looking radiant and fresh.

Honey is also a gentle exfoliator as it effectively removes dry dead skin cells.

There are numerous benefits of honey in skincare:

1. Hydration & moisturisation

Honey draws moisture from the air and into the skin which helps to keep our skin hydrated from the outside. Enzymes in honey go deep into our skin to moisturise it from within.

2. Anti-age & wrinkles

As a powerful antioxidant honey is the original anti-age ingredient in skincare. It helps to keep skin looking young and reduces wrinkles and other skin spots or blemishes.

3. Acne, eczema, psoriasis

Honey has strong antibacterial & anti-inflammatory properties which help to remove excess oils from the skin. It also helps to clear out pores which prevent the development of acne and other skin blemishes leaving you with healthy and clean skin.

4. Skin colour & appearance

Honey is a natural antioxidant and antiseptic. Together with its other benefits, this helps to soothe scarred tissue by reducing inflammation and assisting the skin to heal faster.

Historically honey has been used as it leaves the skin glowing.

🕯 Beeswax

Beeswax is a building block for beehives. It’s been used by humans for at least 9000 years. It’s edible - tribes like Hadza eat wax, honey and larvae regularly.

🌲 Propolis

Propolis is a bee glue - a mix of bee saliva and beeswax along with a variety of tree sap and buds.

It’s scraped from the hives as dry, brownish resin.

Humans have been keeping bees for more than 8500 years.
