Active Manuka Honey
From the nectar of the native New Zealand Manuka flowers, Active Manuka Honey is a miracle beauty ingredient.
A natural antimicrobial, the power of honey to stimulate wound healing and promote healthy skin is well documented and scientifically proven. It is extensively used on the skin in hospitals for its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and to stimulate the immune system, providing nutrients for cell metabolism and rapid tissue repair. It naturally contains acids, which aid in the clearing of dead skin cells.
The nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and minerals in Active Manuka Honey give it special qualities. The bioactivity of Manuka Honey, referred to as the unique Manuka factor (UMF), is associated with the strong antimicrobial activity of this honey against the bacteria E. coli and Staph. aureus, major sources of skin and wound infections.
It works as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin, and the unique properties of Active Manuka Honey make it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honeys for the skin. It's perfect to enhance your skin's renewal process.
This uniquely New Zealand healer has extraordinary skin benefits - hydrating, moisturising, nourishing, healing, rejuvenating and protecting. That's why it's is a key ingredient throughout Living Nature's range, including in our Nourishing Night Cream, Nourishing Day Cream, Manuka Honey Gel and Balancing Night Gel.
