Honey is having its moment right now and this is especially true for beauty. While the benefits of honey have been promoted for their health and healing properties because it's high in antibacterial qualities, it turns out that it is super great for skin, too.
For the past eight years Apiculture New Zealand has been running a campaign raising awareness of the importance of bees, as the world’s bee population is on the decline. This month is all about understanding the vital role bees play in the pollination of our food and creation of the brilliant raw ingredients that are used within numerous skin care products.
So, here’s a round-up of some products that utilise our precious bees, working hard to leave your skin looking beautiful.
