Manuka honey is produced by honeybees that feed on the Manuka tree in New Zealand as well as Australia.
Honey is well known to have a positive effect on wound healing as well as a variety of other skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and acne.
What is unique about Manuka honey specifically is its high levels of methylglyoxal. This is quantified by a scale known as Unique Manuka Factor (UMF)
The higher the UMF number = higher concentration of methylglyoxal
Methylglyoxal is the active anti-bacterial compound that makes manuka honey unique.
Other benefits of Manuka honey include:
Powerful humectant- draws moisture into skin
Antioxidant and anti-aging
