A Sticky Situation

With the winter months upon us, chapped and “weathered” skin is commonplace. Consumers are tired of the old and looking for new, natural answers to their skin care questions. What are consumers looking for? A skin care line that not only fights off free radicals but hydrates without the use of parabens or synthetic chemicals?  Well … maybe its time to sweeten things up with manuka honey.

Manuka honey originates in New Zealand where bees feed on the flowers of the Manuka bush. It is commonly referred to as the “tea tree”, as tea tree oil is most often derived from a related tree. As most know, honey is chock full of health benefits but more specifically, manuka honey touts skin health benefits. It serves as an anti-bacterial and an anti-fungal, and can fight off free radicals due to its high level of antioxidants. It can attract water to the skin which makes it a beneficial agent in moisturizers. Although, it’s sticky and viscous in nature, it can be development into a more controllable for natural skin care formulations.
