Unravel the Secret of a Wonderful Beauty Ingredient - Honey!

It is no wonder that we find so many skin care products that include honey, from products your clients are purchasing or DIY at home remedies. Using honey as a beauty secret dates all the way back to Cleopatra who used to take baths filled with it. (And we all know this girl knew what she was doing when it came to beauty!)

Honey does wonders for the skin and possesses natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which make it especially great for use in sensitive, combination, and acne prone skin types. However, it is suitable for all skin types. Honey as an ingredient in your skin care treatments will moisturize, cleanse and make the skin soft and silky! It also attracts the dirt from skin pores and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, so it is said to be a great natural cleanser and softener.

An easy way to include honey into your treatments would be using Honey Powder, which has a longer shelf life then honey in its traditional form and can be mixed as needed whereas traditional honey can crystallize and be sticky and difficult to use. Honey Powder can be used in milk baths, oatmeal/honey facials, and other treatments utilizing honey. It is also known as a natural humectant and has the ability to attract and retain moisture.


So what IS Honey Powder?
Honey Powder is really just dehydrated honey. It is white in color and has a texture similar to corn flour. The process used to create this powder is to use very high heat, although some producers even freeze dry the honey, to spray to a fine dry powder.


A simple tip on using Honey Powder: You can mix 3/4 parts Honey Powder and 1/4 parts water.
