Responsibly Grown Honey is a high quality honey with hygroscopic and antioxidant properties. When added to skin and hair care products, honey acts as a humectant, helping to impart a hydrated, shiny glow to the skin and hair. Honey is a supersaturated sugar solution containing small amounts of protein, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

Honey is known to be rich in both enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants, including catalase, ascorbic acid, flavonoids and alkaloids. Although appearing only in trace amounts, honey also contains about 18 different amino acids.

Although this ingredient looks (and smells) good enough to eat, please note that this honey is intended for external, cosmetic use only.

If you would like to formulate with the benefits of honey without the stickiness or smell, try "Honeyquat" (aka Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey).
