FSS Manuka Honey Extract

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid; Contains Butylene Glycol

BACKGROUND

The allure of the Polynesian islands has long dominated trends in popular cultures. Tribes within the Pacific Ocean expanse are believed to embrace magical wisdoms revealing the secret to beautiful skin. More elusive than the land from which it is derived. Manuka honey is a distinctive food and nutrient source of New Zealand. The country’s remote location in southeastern Australian waters fosters select vegetation thought to have ancient healing properties. Indigenous to the secluded New Zealand countryside, Manuka honey is generated from honeybees that feed off of the region’s exotic Manuka bush, Leptospermum scoparium. A common name for the bush used by natives is “Tea Tree”. It has been suggested that the plant was used to make tea by the legendary explorer Captain James Cook. The unique nectar from the rare bush contains distinctive therapeutic properties when compared to traditional honey.


SCIENCE

For generations, holistic remedies have relied on honey because of its high nutrient content. Honey, known to be rich in natural sugars containing vitamins B1, B6, and B12, reinforces the skin’s ability to regenerate tissue thus minimizing damage and diminishing the signs of aging. Studies show that Manuka honey bioactives perform differently from other honeys offsetting free radical activity for superior protection. Current research also shows that Manuka honey is able to improve wound repair by lowering the pH level. This in turn limits protease activity while subsequently increasing fibroblast activity for enhanced collagen production.


BENEFITS

Honey has been used for centuries to seal the dermal layers and elevate moisture levels in the skin. Because of its hydroscopic nature, it is capable of absorbing moisture from the environment. This will improve barrier function leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. Enzymatic activity associated with the honey further optimizes skin’s resiliency to reduce symptoms associated with irritation. Specifically, the body triggers a honey-induced cytokine reaction which moderates inflammatory responses for advanced cell recovery. Innovative science coupled with old world nature is proving to change the cosmetic industry. FSS Manuka Honey Extract is pioneering the way for more natural beauty practices for centuries to come. Nourishing benefits with nutrient-rich soothing properties have never been sweeter!
