Manuka Honey – The Top Ingredient For Organic Natural Skin Care
Have you recently read about all the amazing benefits of using honey for the health of your skin? Honey has anti bacterial properties and beeswax is amazing at keeping your skin hydrated.
What most people don’t know is that not all honey is the same. Manuka honey has many unique properties that set it above other honey. If you are looking for organic natural skin care then make sure manuka honey is included in the ingredients.
Manuka honey comes from the pollen of the manuka bush which grows exclusively in New Zealand. It’s special because clinical tests have shown that it penetrates the skin deeper than other honey.
If you’re like me, then you are looking for organic natural skin care that really works with your body. Manuka honey has anti inflammatory properties and naturally stimulates the body in collagen production. Collagen and elastin together give the skin its smooth texture.
Doctors have begun using manuka honey for its anti bacterial properties and also because the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) aids the healing of the skin and reduces scar tissue.
Even with all these benefits, it’s important to remember that not all manuka honey is the same. The Honey Research Unit at the University of Waitkato in Zealand has developed a test that determines the antibacterial properties of the manuka honey. They then rate the honey as active or not.
So, the ingredient you want in organic natural skin care is active manuka honey. Another big advantage to this natural healer is that manuka honey remains stable even after exposed to heat and light. Other honey can degrade once exposed to these elements.
Let’s not forget the antioxidant proprieties of all honey. Somehow the amazing manuka bush from New Zealand lends more antioxidants to its honey than other type of honey.
Your skin can naturally use these antioxidants to combat free radicals helping to keep your skin smooth and strong.
Make no mistake about it: when you are shopping for organic natural skin care products you should look for manuka honey as an ingredient to support your body’s natural smooth skin.
