Healing Hive BCR is derived from a rare white honey from the isolated Kiawe Forest on the island of Hawaii. The Kiawe trees stretch deep to an underground aquifer of fresh water that flows down from the volcanoes, tapping into this nutrient rich source in the otherwise desert climate. The honey naturally crystallizes into an exceptionally creamy texture that has healing powers to prevent and reduce scars, soothe inflammation and redness and provide incredible moisturization to the skin.
In vitro PCR analysis shows that this extract upregulates the genes responsible for cell survival, tissue remodeling and scar reduction. An in vitro inflammation study shows that the extract has the ability to decrease Interleukin-8 (IL-8) levels in fibroblasts. An in vivo moisturization study shows that the extract contributes a significant moisturization effect to the skin. Healing Hive BCR is a low odor, lightly colored aqueous extract that is easily incorporated into all types of skin care products.
