Hygroscopic is the term used for the ability of a substance to attract water molecules around it. Which makes it one of the best moisturiser and sealant.
Honey does that way too good because it is mostly sugar and by nature, sugar is hygroscopic. The high concentration of fructose with glucose, a reducing sugar, is not a very good place for bacteria to thrive. The reason is the osmotic imbalance between the bacterial cells and the high concentrated (hypertonic) surrounding. This hypertonicity and hygroscopic nature of the honey play hand in hand with each other, and this result in the bacterial cell losing all the water from the cytoplasm. This horror-filled process, also called as plasmolysis, kills almost all the bacteria, even before they have the chance to plot their way to spoil the honey.
