The high sugar content of maple syrup gives it humectant properties, which keeps skin and hair hydrated, while conditioning and softening. We blend rich maple syrup with water to obtain a lighter, but still tantalising mix.
The sap of the maple tree, called maple water, starts flowing from the roots to the branches in early spring and is collected by tapping holes into the tree trunks when the weather becomes warmer after the frosty winter.
The clear, watery sap will naturally flow out of the spouts carefully placed in the holes. If the harvest is carried out respectfully the trees will not be negatively affected and can live for hundreds of years.
