Get to Know: Raw Honey

Why Raw Honey?

In its natural form, honey is produced by enzyme activity, plant matter, and live bacteria coming together to create a powerful ingredient with hundreds of practical uses.

The unique process that creates honey makes it especially valuable for cosmetic uses, such as clearing acne, healing scars, and evening out skin tone.

Raw honey is packed with components beneficial for your skin, especially if you have acne or autoimmune skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Honey speeds up your skin cells' healing processes. If you have blemishes or an eczema outbreak, unpasteurized honey could speed healing and reduce inflammation.

According to some clinical studies and anecdotal evidence, applying raw honey to the skin may have the following benefits:
