What’s so special about Manuka honey?

What’s so special about Manuka honey?
on September 16, 2021

Manuka honey is the go-to skincare ingredient of the past ten years, and it’s easy to see why. Manuka honey is distinguished from other honey by its antibacterial qualities. Its active ingredient, methylglyoxal, is thought to be responsible for the antibacterial properties.

It's jam-packed with goodness all the way from New Zealand. Manuka honey is unique in that it is made from the blossoms of only one plant: the Manuka bush, a native plant that is worlds apart from the honey you get in supermarkets. 

How is Manuka honey made?

Manuka honey is one of nature's great gifts because the Manuka plant only flowers for 2-6 weeks a year, making real Manuka honey extremely rare. This combination of natural goodness and rarity certainly makes Manuka honey one of nature's wonderful gifts.

The western honey bee - often known as the ‘European honey bee' and the most abundant bee species on the planet — performs the Manuka pollination process that results in honey. Honey bees pollinate the bloom once they have begun collecting pollen and nectar. A colony will wait until the nectar supply is depleted, allowing them to make the most of the flowers they pollinate.

Why you should use Manuka honey on your skin

There are numerous health benefits of Manuka honey, but did you know that the condiment-turned-healing agent can also be used as a beauty product? Pure, natural Manuka honey is an excellent natural remedy for acne and other skin disorders. It also serves as a natural moisturiser because it can absorb moisture directly from the air and bring it into the skin, it enhances skin hydration.

Why Manuka and CBD?

CBD takes the moisturising effects of Manuka to the next level. CBD (which does not contain the psychotropic component THC) gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin while infusing it with important nutrients. Discover more about our powerful pairing here.
