Ancient civilizations in Greece, Egypt and Italy already knew the wound-healing, moisturising and smoothing properties of honey. Japanese women used it for its cleansing and whitening properties.
The main components of honey are sugars, simple or branched, minerals, vitamins (C, B1 and B2) and amino acids. It is said that honey soothes the skin. It can increase capillary blood circulation and ameliorates the appearance of skin.
Honey can be used in cosmetic products for sensitive and delicate skin especially in body care, shower and hair care product to support a moisturising effect.
