The Cosmetic Benefits Of Manuka Honey - PURITI

The cosmetic benefits of pure Manuka honey are world-renowned. Made from the Manuka Nectar, native to NZ, medical professionals are well-underway exploring the potential for therapeutic benefits of this national treasure. Chemical research and investigation has observed the possibility of anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal benefits within Manuka honey.

The ultimate tool for skincare and rejuvenation whether applied topically as a mask or alongside other beneficial ingredients. It has even been suggested by some fans to support improvement of skin health. There are some reports that indicate that bioactive ingredients within Manuka honey may prompt collagen production. An integral component of youthful skin.

Genuine Manuka honey is a natural humectant, which means it draws moisture into the skin. Along with the numerous minerals, amino acids and vitamins, Manuka honey has several key ingredients that have been noted to potentially increase the quality of skin heath.

 

Acne

NZ Manuka honey benefits have been suggested to include antimicrobial activity within some of the key bioactive ingredients. Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the unique compound that has scientists so interested. Proposed to exhibit antibacterial properties, it reduces the growth of certain bacteria in scientific studies. 

Clinicians are certain that many cases of acne are caused or exacerbated by the presence of bacteria on the skin.


Chapped lips

Heal your cracked lips overnight by applying some Manuka honey to your lips. Spread a little over them and leave it on as you sleep. Alternatively, add equal parts brown sugar and honey, mix it together and create a natural exfoliant that tastes great!

 

Hair treatments

Manuka honey is not only beneficial for the skin, but it also is beneficial for hair. Containing protein and promoting collagen growth, it’s the perfect solution for healing dry and damaged hair. This works in combination with the natural emollient properties to bring in and retain moisture. For healthy, flowing hair.



Anti-ageing properties

Along with natural humectant properties, this unique honey acts as a gentle exfoliant for the skin. This means it gently washes away dead skin cells, revealing healthier, more youthful skin underneath. Without rough, abrasive material that can be damaging to the skin. While also hydrating, plumping and preventing dryness.

This, as a result, helps stimulate the production of collagen which helps the skin maintain its elasticity, firmness and youthful appearance. It also contains numerous B-vitamins which help promote cell health.

PURITI Manuka honey can be used as a cleanser, with just a few drops of water. It can also be used as a mask mixed or even as just a spot treatment on problem areas by itself.


What is the Manuka honey UMF rating?

The UMF Manuka honey grading system is an important tool. It measures the potency and authenticity of the honey as a Manuka variety. A UMF certification for a jar of honey will have a number next to it. This is directly correlated to the level of methylglyoxal (MGO) that is in the jar.

With PURITI, you can be sure the honey purchased is of the highest quality and some of the best Manuka Honey in NZ.

For example, a 250g jar of PURITI with an 18+ UMF Manuka honey rating has an MGO level of 700+. This is higher than the minimum MGO rating of 696 for UMF certified 18+ Manuka honey. Most Manuka honey brands only follow the minimum requirements. At PURITI, we strive to have the best quality Manuka honey.
