World Bee Day 2022
Honey, also known as Madhura, has been part of so many skin remedies, there can be an infinite amount of concoctions that can be made with honey. Since it is such a diverse ingredient we have taken the liberty to incorporate it in our Mitti Raw Honey Masque.
Honey has antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that benefit our skin, it also cleans out toxins and nourishes our skin. It is a skin food humectant that softens, refines, and clears blemishes. Honey also includes proteins, fats, minerals, and enzymes that have effective and rapid action in healing infections and promoting cell regeneration.
In order to protect the bees, we work with the beekeepers and educate them on the importance of bees and their impact on our ecosystem. By ensuring that when they do take out honey, they leave sufficient amounts for the bees. Bees and other pollinators are important for our survival, as the number is declining at an alarming rate. Their existence is of paramount importance to us as Bees, pollinate 35% of the world’s food crops. In the world, we have 80 million to 100 million bees, as in 60,000 to 100,000 per colony which is not a great number as they are declining at an alarming rate. So it is essential that we use responsible human beings, take part actively and be sustainable.
We source our honey from Under the Mango tree, The Pan Himalayan Grassroots Development Foundation, and Bhimashankar in Pune, all these organizations have ethical practices and ensure that bees do not come under harm. Our consumers do not have to worry about us endangering the bees for the production of Mitti Raw Honey Masque, as we personally assure you that we do not harm any living thing. To officially establish our responsibility to the environment we also are certified organic, ECOCERT certified, non-palm, non-GMO and wild harvested.

According to the European Commission, it is estimated that “pollinators, including honey bees, bumblebees, and wild bees, contribute at least 22 billion EUR each year to the European agriculture industry. They ensure pollination for over 80% of crops and wild plants in Europe.” This clearly shows the drastic impact it would have on the economy and the environment, so we as an ethical, ecological and equal company, work hard on providing the best and most sustainable source of honey to our remarkable Mitti Raw Honey Masque.
