We all know how healthy honey can be for our bodies but did you know it is also very beneficial for your skin as well? Naturopathica has just released a new cleanser, Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm, packed with nutrients and can be used on all skin types.
Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Manuka honey has been found to have higher varieties of honey and in a raw form is packed with vitamins B and C and live enzymes. So what exactly does manuka honey do for the skin?
      1) Heals acne: it oxygenates pores to draw out bacteria and since its antiinflammatory it reduces redness and heals inflamed skin (this is great for eczema too!)
       2) Repairs:  repairs cellular damage and promotes skin regeneration
       3) Hydrates: it absorbs moisture from from the air and holds moisture in without being oily
       4) Anti aging: it inhibits MMP, a group of enzymes that destroy collagen
Other beneficial ingredients in Naturopathica’s Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm are royal jelly peptides which nourish and reinforce the skin barrier and lactobacillus ferment lysate filtrates that are strengthening probiotics that help improve texture through enhanced moisturization and rejuvenation.
I fell in love with this cleanser the very first time I used it, not only for its versatility with skin types but with also how amazing it left my skin feeling. I’ve never had a cleanser leave my skin feeling so soft and supple but also clean with no residue. Within a week I’m already seeing an improvement in my skin. Needless to say its been hard to keep it on the shelves. Stop in today to try out this awesome cleanser or add it to any facial service for an added nutrient boost.
