African Wild Honey, 14oz
- Item #: AWH1
Our wild African honey is unfiltered, unpasturized, and contains all its natural vitamins, minerals and amino acids to nourish the skin and the hair. Honey is a natural humectant and therefore has the ability to attract and retain moisture. The natural hydrating properties of honey make it ideal for use in moisturizing products. Our wild honey is also suitable for sensitive skin products since it is natural and non-irritating. Honey also has significant natural antioxidant properties. Recent articles have revealed honey's effectiveness as an antimicrobial agent that inhibit the growth of certain bacteria. Honey is antimicrobial for several reasons, including its high sugar content, which limits the amount of water available to bacteria for growth; its relatively high acidity (low pH); and its low protein content, which deprives bacteria of nitrogen needed for growth. The presence of hydrogen peroxide and antioxidants in honey also inhibit bacterial growth. African wild honey is very unique and completely natural. It has not been processed in any way, and will make a special addition to your products.
