Why is honey good for our skin?

Why honey for the skin?

Turns out honey has a lot of buzz-worthy benefits for keeping our skin healthy and beautiful. Dating back to Ancient Egyptian times, the beautiful Cleopatra allegedly used honey and milk face masks.

An increasing amount of evidencesupports that honey is good for the skin and that regular use of honey has boundless benefits for your complexion. Honey has anti-inflammatory properties that can aid with skin conditions such acne, eczema, and psoriasis. 

Honey speeds up our skin cells healing processes to reduce inflammation. It's so effective at healing wounds-particularly Manuka honey-that it's now being used by doctors in clinical settings.

What is it about Honey?

Enzymes found in honey clarify skin and keep pores clear and clean. Plus, the antibacterial properties of honey prevent bacterial buildup that can lead to skin imbalances and breakouts

Honey is loaded with antioxidants that not only slow down aging but give your complexion a boost of nutrients and enzymes that nourish and heal skin, and it's a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture into the skin and ensures it's retained where it's needed most for penetrating and long-lasting hydration.

Raw honey is also a natural exfoliator, which means applying it to your face takes off dry, dull skin and reveals new skin cells underneath.

Why do we use honey in our Creme Fraiche Facial Cleanser                

For all the above reasons, we love to formulate with pure, organic honey. Its broad-spectrum antibacterial benefits, and soothing enzymes make it the go-to cleanser for normal to sensitive skin. 

Creme Fraiche Facial Cleanser has a 40% honey content, all the goodness with no stickiness, and no sulfates.  It's been one of our best-sellers for years.

Review by Linda N: 

This is the only cleanser I would recommend. Cleanses my skin thoroughly. Never irritates. My skin feels refreshed afterward. Love it!
