Honey, when used topically, supports the skin's own cell renewal process, and assists in the formation of stronger collagen, the protein in skin responsible for its elasticity. In addition, honey contains natural antioxidants that protect against damaging free radicals.
Honey itself also has the ability to produce hydrogen peroxide, which can destroy bacteria. In fact, honey has been used since ancient times for its excellent healing properties, particularly when applied to the skin.
Manuka Honey is unique to New Zealand.
Research has found that New Zealand active manuka honey also has much higher levels of antioxidants than any other type of honey, and stimulates the immune system. It can penetrate deeply into the skin, to nourish and rejuvenate it, making it look younger and softer.
