Hon·ey [huhn-ee] – a sweet, viscid fluid produced by bees from the nectar collected from flowers, and stored in nests or hives as food.
A past and present food favourite for many, honey is smooth and delicious to the taste and sweet-smelling to the nose.

On top of its wonderful taste and fragrance, honey is great for the skin for the following reasons:

- A natural antibacterial compound, great for acne treatment and prevention
- Ultimate smoother, moisturizing and soothing for the skin – great for overall tone and touch
