-----------------

Since ancient times, honey has been used to treat wounds, burns, sores, and boils. Honey offers antibacterial and antioxidant properties, all while maintaining a moist wound environment and protective barrier which prevents microbial infections in the wound. Furthermore, studies have shown manuka honey attacks harmful oral bacteria associated with plaque formation, gum inflammation, and tooth decay. A regular intake of manuka honey may also help to treat and improve digestive symptoms, such as gastric ulcers.

Nowadays, manuka honey is not only consumed orally but used widely for personal care such as face masks and body scrubs. It is a natural treatment for acne and delivers a variety of benefits for the skin including:

  • Strong antibacterial properties. Because manuka honey contains both hydrogen peroxide and methylglyoxal, it's potent against a variety of bacteria.
  • Draws moisture to the skin. Manuka honey is a natural humectant due to its sugar component (mainly glucose and fructose), meaning it helps the skin to retain moisture making it a useful ingredient in lotions. 
  • Promotes wound healing. Manuka honey is made up of plenty of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals combined with its low PH to speed up the healing process. 

Despite its many benefits, it's important to note that if you are allergic to bees, you shouldn't be using manuka honey. 

Take your shower regime to the next level with our Splotch by Organik Botanik Manuka Honey Body Scrub! Manuka honey is nutrient rich in the formulation and is packed with nourishing and hydrating properties that help to exfoliate and soothe the skin.
