New Zealand tea tree
Mānuka Oil is extracted via steam distillation from sustainably sourced Mānuka leaves and flowers, a shrub native to New Zealand. For centuries, New Zealand Māori have used this potent oil to aid in treating everything from rheumatism and fevers to burns and skin disorders.
Used by Living Nature as a hero ingredient for over 3 decades, Mānuka Oil is known as nature’s potent skin protector with powerful antimicrobial properties (works to kill or slow the spread of microorganisms). Studies have shown Mānuka Oil to be up to 33 times stronger than Tea Tree Oil against some bacteria[i], and this powerful oil contains antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These remarkable properties help to combat skin irritation and infections, protecting skin from bacteria and promoting overall immune health.
