This sweet, fragrant, syrupy substance produced by bees contains amino acids, vitamins and essential minerals that keep skin healthy, including:
- B vitamins
- Vitamin C
Honey contains numerous phenolic and nonphenolic antioxidants, which help defend against free radical damage and support healthy cell turnover in the skin. Honey is a natural moisturizer. Because it attracts and retains water, honey helps soothe, soften and moisturize the skin.
We use honey in many of our lotions, body butters and scrubs.
