BENEFITS OF ACTIVE MĀNUKA HONEY
MĀNUKA HONEY is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native mānuka bush. It is used in both traditional and modern medicine for its natural antibacterial properties. In addition to containing hydrogen peroxide, MĀNUKA HONEY is high in the antibacterial methylglyoxal (MG). MG is found in most types of honey in small quantities. However, MĀNUKA HONEY contains up to 100 times more MG than normal honey.
MĀNUKA HONEY works wonders for blemished skin because of its aforementioned natural antibacterial properties. It is also a potent anti-inflammatory, so soothes inflamed skin while healing blemishes. It also helps balance the skin’s pH and contains amino acids which slough away dead skin cells, helping to keep pores clear. In other words: this sticky-sweet substance is your problem skin’s best friend.
MG has been shown to increase collagen cross-linking, promoting the structural growth of collagen in skin cells. And since amino acids are the building blacks of collagen, they also protect collagen. Healthy collagen means healthy, firm, youthful-looking skin.
MĀNUKA HONEY is a natural humectant, drawing moisture into the skin. This hydration helps to further enhance the skin’s elasticity and cell regeneration, as well as promote healing.
