Georgia beekeeper Ted Dennard creates honey-based skin products.

Honey contains vitamin E and is hygroscopic, which means it softens skin by pulling moisture from the air. It also contains hydrogen peroxide, which works like an antiseptic to kill bacteria on the skin. The company’s hand salves and creams use additional by-products from the beehives including royal jelly and propolis, a resin that helps cure skin viruses.
Soaps sold exclusively at the Savannah shop come in three fresh-from-the-garden scents: Mint Julep, Orange Blossom, and Clementine.
