Did you know that honey never goes out of date?
Honey has a complex organic composition containing a number of naturally antibiotic substances, grouped together under the generic name “inhibine”; these are in fact highly powerful bacteriostatic agents, meaning that they slow down the proliferation of bacteria. Consequently it is the only foodstuff that can be stored forever and will never go out of date. Honey will crystallise after a number of years of storage, reheating it is sufficient to return it to its liquid aspect. It has even been said that over 2,000 year-old honey discovered in the Egyptian pyramids had not gone out of date.

Bee Nature and bees
To make a Bee Nature shower cream, the bees will have collected the nectar of over 48,000 flowers and travelled over 240 kilometres!
