Since ancient times, honey has been considered a rare delicacy with medicinal properties in both Eastern and Western medicine. It’s a natural beauty remedy with anti-aging, moisturizing, and antiseptic properties that’ s fit for a queen!
Aged Honey, Propolis, Royal Jelly, Oh My
Not all honey is farmed equally. At SKINFOOD, we use the most effective types of honey in many of our products. Did you know that aged honey is different from regular honey? It’ s super concentrated, resulting in a lower moisture content and a higher concentration of things that are good for your skin – vitamins, minerals, and sugars. Our revamped Royal Honey line uses aged honey from the hives of Master Lim Hyeongmun. Unlike ordinary honey which is produced by feeding bees sugar water and artificially heating the beehives to force honey production, Master Lim has been making aged honey only once a year since 1956. His 60-day fermentation process in the beehive produces a rich, concentrated, aged honey that smooths away signs of aging, improves skin texture, all while producing a nourishing moisturization.
Propolis, or bee glue, is a resinous mixture that worker bees collect from botanical sources. It is used as a sealant to protect diseases and parasites from entering the hive, and to inhibit decay and fungal and bacterial growth. Its properties act as a sealant give it excellent moisture-retaining power and an anti-inflammatory effect. Researchers are currently buzzed about its possible uses in fighting arthritis
Royal jelly is secreted by worker bees and fed to bee larvae and adult queens. Highly nutritious, it is mostly composed of water, protein, and simple sugars, but also boasts a relatively high amount of amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antibacterial and antibiotic components. Royal Jelly also stimulates collagen production, which leads to taut, smooth skin.
So what’ s all this good for? Long-lasting, double moisturization
Have you ever experienced this? You get a new moisturizer, but upon application, it doesn’ t really absorb into your skin but just sits on top. The aged honey and other all-natural ingredients in SKINFOOD’ s Royal Honey line effect a deep moisturizing impact which penetrates into skin, not remaining on the surface. Honey attracts and retains moisture, so our Royal Honey products double moisturize, from the outside in, to the inside out. They provide a long-lasting, comprehensive moisturization to treat dry skin at all levels, firming skin and preventing it from aging.
