Manuka honey is produced by bees that feed on the manuka shrub of New Zealand’s remote North Island. Due to its anti-inf lammatory properties, manuka honey reduces redness and heals congested or inflamed skin and eczema. Additionally, Manuka oxygenates pores to draw out bacteria, drastically improving acne-prone areas. Manuka promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens scarring. When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion. Because of its moisturizing properties, manuka retains moisture without making skin oily, the first step in wrinkle-free skin. It also inhibits MMP, a group of enzymes that destroy collagen.
