Kanaan Naturals Olive Oil and Honey Soap is made with natural olive oil and honey which are both great for your skin. In addition to the known benefits of olive oil soap, there are several benefits for honey for your skin. Honey can be used as a part of a dry skin regimen because its composition is described as a humectant. A humectant is an item or substance that attracts moisture and keeps it locked inside. Using a honey-based facial mask proves beneficial to areas of skin that tend to become dry or itchy because it lends moisture into these areas. People have oily skin can benefit from honey as well. The sweetener of the honey can also help your skin retain moisture and elasticity. In addition to that, honey is a natural antioxidant, which proves beneficial when taken internally, but it also provides protective benefits when used topically on the skin. Antioxidants can protect internal organs from a type of damage called oxidative stress, which can lead to a better overall health in some cases. The Skin Care Resource Center reports that current research has determined the effectiveness of honey as a natural form of sunscreen, to protect the skin from sun damage such as premature wrinkling, a condition that in some people can lead to skin cancer. Furthermore, on the medical side of skin care, honey as a wound dressing can help promote healing and prevent infection due to its natural antimicrobial properties. According to the New Zealand Dermatological Society, the chemical makeup of honey, largely sugars, has what is described as "high osmolality." High osmolality when referring to honey means that the sugars interact with water in such a way that microorganisms cannot develop. In addition to the osmolality of honey, when the sweetener comes in contact with wound exudates--fluids that weep from sores or ulcers--hydrogen peroxide is produced. The creation of the hydrogen peroxide can provide antibacterial benefits to ulcerated areas, which speeds healing.
In addition to the above mentioned benefits of olive oil and honey for the skin, all of our products contain olive leaves extract which also has several benefits for the skin. Olive leaves extract has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb to treat a variety of health conditions related to skin.
A study published in a 2010 "International Journal of Cancer" shows that olive leaf protects against skin cancer as it significantly inhibits cell reproduction.
Another study published in a 2008 "International Journal of Cosmetic Science" shows that the extract of olive leaf reduced reddening of the skin, dehydration and blood flow to the skin better than vitamin E.
