Hero Ingredient: Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey has a ‘Unique Manuka Factor’ which refers to its level of antibacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of all honeys. It has also been shown to diffuse deeper into skin tissues.
Manuka Honey is tested for its level activity and issued with a number. So a rating of 10 indicates the same level of antiseptic potency of a 10% solution of Phenol (Carbolic Disinfectant). The higher the rating, the higher the activity level is, and therefore the greater the healing ability. All of the Manuka Honey included in our products has an activity rating of 16+.
In addition to its antibacterial abilities Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therefore, very hydrating. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and has demonstrated the ability to accelerate tissue repair, aiding in skin repair and the reduction of scarring.
Hero Ingredient: Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil is a hypoallergenic plant oil rich in Vitamin E and is also a natural anti-oxidant. The chemical constituents of Jojoba Oil are very similar to those of human sebum making it a great choice for use in skin care. It also has some anti-bacterial abilities, is a wonderful natural moisturiser for all skin types and is well known for its ability not to clog pores.
