What is Manuka Honey?

Manuka Honey is a type of honey unique to New Zealand, making it just one of the many reasons New Zealand’s skincare is a serious winner all around. Manuka Honey is produced by bees that pollinate the flower Leptospermum scoparium, known as the manuka bush. So, what sets Manuka Honey apart from your standard pot of honey? Its numerous beauty benefits.

Manuka Honey is a natural antibacterial, helping to fight microbial invasion while also balancing the levels of normal bacteria on the skin’s surface. This unique soother calms inflammation, locks moisture into the skin’s surface, and provides antioxidant benefits. Great for a wide range of issues and skin concerns, Manuka Honey is the liquid gold of the honey world.
