Honey test

Honey preservative test 003SM_crpwtrmrk

I’ve been working on a lipgloss project – was thinking that it would be fun to add some local honey to it – because honey has a lot of attributes that I look for in a lip product and it would be fun to tie in to the local business theme.

Honey is a self preserved system. How would it hold up to a lipgloss application? To test, got out my petri dish and agar solution for a quick run. As you can see in the picture, I got an answer very quickly. Within hours, bacteria colonies were flourishing on the agar. I think honey is going to be a challenging ingredient to work with, will proceed with caution.
