Honey is a fragrant, sweet, sticky liquid made by the hard-working honeybees. The benefits on the skin and hair are vast as honey contains lots of nutrients, is humectant, antimicrobial and antioxidant and has shown great wound healing properties over the centuries.

Description

Description

Bees collect nectar from flowers and carry it to their hives where the worker bees convert it  into honey. Half a kilogram of honey contains the essence of about two million flowers and the colour, fragrance and properties of honey vary depending on the varieties foraged. This Zambian fairly traded honey, for example, has rich, smoky aroma and a dark amber colour.

Honey is imperishable and is also a natural humectant, which means that it attracts and retains moisture. This is good news in cosmetics as it protects the skin and hair, keeps them moisturised and conditioned, while contributing to  the preservation of products formulae.

Lush purchase this honey from Zambia where it’s produced by wild bees. They forage in uncultivated forests, meaning their honey is free from pesticides and herbicides. Farmers are paid a fair price and support an environmentally stable supply chain that enables them to sell their honey to Lush, while retaining enough to sell to their own domestic market.
