Manuka Oil is a hero ingredient in many of our skincare products, Manuka Oil is renowned for its potent antimicrobial and anti-acne properties. For centuries, New Zealand Maori have used the Manuka Oil from the native tea tree, Manuka, to treat everything from rheumatism and fevers to burns and skin disorders.

Used in skin care, the antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties of remarkable Manuka oil combat skin irritation and infections, including acne-causing bacteria.

Recently, scientists have confirmed what they've always known. Manuka Oil is up to 33 times stronger than tea tree essential oil for protecting against certain strains of bacteria. It's also effective against the MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staph. Aureus) bacteria, which is resistant to normal antibiotics.

It truly is nature's miracle skin protector - we know, we use Manuka Oil too!
