Benefits of Manuka Honey


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

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Antioxidant and anti-aging
