Leptospermum Scoparium, commonly known as Manuka, is a bush like tree which produces white, or occasionally pink flowers. The Manuka bush can be found throughout the North and South islands of New Zealand. Honey has been used since ancient times for healing purposes. In the late 19th Century researchers discovered that it has natural antibacterial properties.
Using our own 100% natural Manuka honey in my skin care range, gave the hand cream an extra luxurious feel, at the same time creating a repair mechanism for damaged skin.
We have used Manuka Honey in our Family for every kind of problem requiring an antiseptic cream, from Nappy rash to Acne and even soothing insect bites
Manuka honey has naturally occurring Methylglyoxal. Discovered by Professor Thomas Henle, head of the institute for food and chemistry at the Technical University of Dresden in Germany. It is this natural occurrence of Methylgloxal in Manuka that gives the honey it's unique properties.
Manuka is only found in New Zealand, is 100% natural.
