NATURE'S ANTI-BACTERIAL AID / ANTI-FUNGAL PROPERTIES
Manuka honey is a monofloral honey produced in New Zealand and Australia from the nectar of the native Manuka tree.Known as nature's super healer rich New Zealand Manuka Honey provides a soothing and replenishing effect.
Methylglyoxal is the major anti-bacterial component of Manuka Honey. Other smaller antibacterial effects are expected to arise from the osmolarity and pH of the Manuka Honey. Research from Waikato University has shown that Manuka Honey has an especially remarkable antibacterial property, found only in the Leptospermum species. This has been called Active Manuka Honey which refers to its level of non-peroxide antibacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of standard honey. The higher the rating, the higher the activity level is, and therefore the greater the ability.
In addition to its antibacterial abilities, Manuka Honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and attracts water which makes it very hydrating. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and has demonstrated the ability to improve skin tone and the reduction of scarring.
NATURE'S SKIN SOOTHER
The faithful Aloe Vera needs no introduction. With a solid reputation for its calming and soothing abilities, it has been a go to product since the very first century. Aloe Vera is a succulent plant which has a rich gel like liquid within its hard exterior leaves.
Used as a natural skin calmer for burns, sun exposure, wind damage and skin rashes the rich gel within the Aloe Vera plant offers a boost of moisture and hydration that tired, stressed skin just loves.
Its main constituents are polysaccharides. It is used in a number of medicinal applications, mainly for the treatment of skin disorders. Aloe Vera is often used to treat skin lesions because of its emollient and soothing actions, which are mainly due to its mucilage content. Mucilages are hygroscopic – they absorb and retain water under certain conditions – a property that makes them good moisturising agents. Aloe Vera gel is of great use to formulate cosmetic products with skin repairing and conditioning activity.
