Honey from Crete Island

In ancient Crete, according to myth, Amalthea was the nurse of Zeus during the years he was growing up hidden from his father Cronus in a cave. The goat Amalthea suckled the infant Zeus and, together with the mountain-nymph Melissa, aided in the eventful birth and upbringing of the greatest of the Twelve Gods of Olympus, so that he would grow up to claim and attain his authority as ruler of the cosmos. When Cronus became aware of Melissa’s role in preventing his murderous design, he changed her into an earthworm. Zeus then, took pitty on her and transformed her into a beautiful bee. Recent developments in DNA analysis have indicated that honey was an essential part of ancient Cretan’s nutrition, and it was the only known sweetening substance for many centuries.

Hero Ingredients

Honey: Contains 90% -95% carbohydrates (fructose, glucose, maltose, etc.), which have dermal affinity to the skin and therefore become part of the skin, reinforcing its ability to retain moisture.

Illite clay: Pulls and draws impurities from the pores, and can be used for both dry and oily skin, because of its ability to restore skin’s natural pH balance. It stimulates skin’s blood circulation, aiding thus many types of skin conditions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea.

Shea Butter: High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin.

Under My Skin

What kind of honey is used in Crete Mask?

We use raw thyme honey form Crete. Crete, with its rugged terrain, abundant sunshine, and temperate climate, provides an ideal environment for the cultivation of thyme, a herbaceous plant known for its aromatic and medicinal properties.

What is Bees-friendly honey?

"Bees-friendly honey from free-roaming bees" encapsulates a holistic approach to honey production that prioritizes the welfare of bees and the ecosystems they inhabit. This concept merges two important aspects: bee-friendly practices and allowing bees to forage freely without constraints.

  1. Bee-friendly Practices: Bee-friendly honey production centers around sustainable beekeeping methods that prioritize the health and well-being of bee colonies. This includes:
  2. Free-Roaming Bees: Allowing bees to forage freely means providing them with access to vast and varied landscapes where they can explore and gather nectar from a diverse range of flowers and plants. Free-roaming bees are not confined to monoculture fields or restricted to specific forage areas. Instead, they have the freedom to navigate natural environments, including wildflower meadows, forests, and uncultivated lands, enriching the honey with the unique flavors and nutritional properties of the region's flora.

Combining bee-friendly practices with the freedom for bees to roam and forage naturally results in honey that embodies the essence of its environment while upholding ethical and sustainable principles. This approach promotes biodiversity, supports pollinator health, and produces honey that not only delights the palate but also reflects a harmonious relationship between humans, bees, and the natural world. Choosing bees-friendly honey from free-roaming bees supports sustainable agriculture, environmental conservation, and the preservation of bee populations for future generations.

How to incorporate a face mask in my skincare routine?

Incorporating a face mask into your skincare routine can be a rejuvenating and beneficial addition. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to effectively incorporate a face mask:

  1. Cleanse Your Skin: Start by cleansing your face with a gentle facial cleanser to remove any dirt, oil, and makeup. Cleansing prepares your skin by ensuring that it's free from impurities, allowing the mask to penetrate more effectively.
  2. Exfoliate (Optional): If you prefer, you can exfoliate your skin before applying the mask to remove dead skin cells and enhance its absorption. Use a gentle facial scrub or exfoliating mask to slough away impurities and reveal smoother, more radiant skin.
  3. Apply Toner (Optional): Follow up with a toner to balance your skin's pH levels and prepare it for the mask. Toners can help tighten pores, hydrate the skin, and enhance the efficacy of subsequent skincare products.
  4. Choose Your Face Mask: Select a face mask tailored to your skin's specific needs and concerns. Whether you're targeting hydration, brightening, acne control, or anti-aging, there's a mask available to address your skincare goals.
  5. Apply the Face Mask: Use clean fingers or a brush to apply an even layer of the mask to your face, avoiding the delicate eye and lip areas. Ensure that the mask covers your entire face evenly, and leave any instructions specified on the product packaging regarding application time.
  6. Relax and Let It Sit: Once applied, relax and allow the mask to work its magic. Most face masks require around 10-20 minutes to dry or absorb into the skin fully. Take this time to unwind, listen to music, read a book, or simply close your eyes and relax.
  7. Rinse Off or Remove: After the recommended time has passed, rinse off the mask with lukewarm water or gently remove it using a damp washcloth or facial sponge. Be sure to remove all traces of the mask to reveal fresh, revitalized skin underneath.
  8. Follow Up with Skincare: After removing the mask, follow up with your regular skincare routine. This may include applying a serum, moisturizer, eye cream, and sunscreen, depending on your skin's needs and the time of day.
  9. Frequency: Incorporate the face mask into your skincare routine 1-3 times per week, depending on your skin type and the mask's instructions. Overusing masks can potentially irritate the skin, so it's essential to find a balance that works for you.

By following these steps, you can effectively incorporate a face mask into your skincare routine and enjoy the benefits of healthier, more radiant-looking skin. Adjust the frequency and type of mask based on your skin's needs and preferences for optimal results.
