Honey components (sugars, aminoacids, lactic acid) may behave as humectants and also enhance humectant properties in a formulation. Active principles of functional properties in honey vary according to visited flora, type of bee and localities where honey is produced. Studies of honey in dermo-cosmetic applications are scarce. In this work we review the topical use of honey through history, cutaneous interventions with honey, and toxicity. Hydrating power was measured with a corneometer in…

Hydration and Barrier Potential of Cosmetic Matrices with Bee Products
There are differences in the ability to hydrate the skin, reduce the loss of epidermal water, and affect the pH of the skin surface, including the organoleptic properties between honey and bee product matrices according to their type and concentration.
The conversion of raw honey into powder can increase its usage in food industry but the health properties of obtained powder in relation to chemical composition of honey have been not studied since

Honey and propolis is natural food, produced by honey bees (Apis mellifera) and largely used by the local population for its medicinal properties. Our work aims to extract and evaluate the hydrogen


Antibacterial and Antioxidant Potency of Floral Honeys from Different Botanical and Geographical Origins
Manuka honey had the highest content of polyphenols and wild carrot honey was the least effective against all tested strains, even though was found to have the lowest pH and water content.
Evaluation of the phenolic content, antioxidant activity and colour of Slovenian honey
Abstract Honey samples from the seven most common honey types in Slovenia were screened for total phenolic content by the modified Folin–Ciocalteu method, for potential antioxidant activity using the
Biological activities and chemical composition of three honeys of different types from Anatolia
The chestnut flower honey had the highest phenolic content, superoxide radical-scavenging activity and reducing power, while the heterofloral honey sample exhibited the highest peroxynitrite-sc avenging activity.
Quality parameters and antioxidant and antibacterial properties of some Mexican honeys.
The results of the study showed that Mexican honeys display good quality parameters and antioxidant and antimicrobial activities and can be used as an additive in the food industry to increase the nutraceutical value of products.
Composition and antioxidant activity of Trigona carbonaria honey from Australia.
The traditional analytical parameters were similar to those previously reported for neotropical stingless bee honey and confirm that honeys produced by Meliponini bees possess several physicochemical properties that are distinctly different from Apis mellifera honey.
Preparation and characterization of herbal creams for improvement of skin viscoelastic properties
The cosmetic cream formulations, CAA4 and CAA5, showed an increase in percentage extensibility, firmness, and improved skin hydration and were found more effective compared with the control product (C7) after the 6‐“week study.
Characterization of monofloral honeys with multivariate analysis of their chemical profile and antioxidant activity.
Principal component analysis showed that honey samples from the same floral origins had more similar profiles, which made it possible to group the eucalyptus, morrão de candeia, and cambara honey samples in 3 distinct areas, while cluster analysis could separate the artificial honey from the floral honeys.
Phenolic acid composition and antioxidant properties of Malaysian honeys.
It is concluded that among Malaysian honey samples, Tualang honey is the richest in phenolic acids, and flavonoid compounds, which have strong free radical-scavenging activities.
Phenolic content and antioxidant and antiacetylcholinesterase properties of honeys from different floral origins.
The biological activity of honeys is related to their floral origin, and medicinal plants constitute a useful resource for the generation of functional foods, and several honey samples had relevant results on antiacetylcholinesterase assay.
Methodological Aspects about Determination of Phenolic Compounds and In Vitro Evaluation of Antioxidant Capacity in the Honey: A Review
The antioxidant activity of honey varies greatly depending on the honey's floral source. There is little knowl- edge about the profiles of antioxidant substances in honey from different floral
