Why use a Honey Mask?

Honey is known for its exceptional healing powers, not only has it been used by most cultures for wound healing, it has been studied extensively and is even used in western medicine for that purpose.

Here we have incorporated it into a healing, moisturising and gentle exfoliating mask. No only does it increases cell turnover, it will also moisturise and help calm inflammation for even the most sensitive skin. We have combined kaolin clay with anti inflammatory borage and lipid giving apricot kernel oils, as well as essential oils known for their targeted therapeutic qualities.

Common Formulation Problems

One common problem with natural honey masks on the market, is its tendency to crystallise and/or dry out. In the course of designing this product we have used strategies to overcome this so that the mask could potentially be exposed for  two weeks or longer without crystals forming. This formulation gives full details on how we have overcome this, so that your mask stays stable.
