Manuka Honey Creams for Skin Care by Frank BuonanotteHoney has been used for centuries to aid skin health and beauty. However, studies have indicated that not all honey is created equal. One specific type of honey known as ‘Manuka Honey’, has proven to have more healing properties than all the others. It is derived from the nectar of a particular floral source indigenous to New Zealand. Scientists have now discovered that Manuka Honey even has more healing properties than antibiotics and other forms of traditional medicine and therefore is more effective in treating certain symptoms. Studies show that the medicinal benefits of Manuka Honey are extraordinary for moisturizing, nourishing, healing, rejuvenating and protecting. It contains nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and minerals. Even though honey had been used as a medicine in the past, the development of antibiotics left medical professionals with the misconception that honey was merely a home remedy. This misconception is now being reconsidered as new research proves the healing value of honey to be far greater than previously recognized. Manuka honey has special qualities that not only work as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin, but it also contains a unique active component that makes it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honeys for the skin.The ability of Manuka Honey to stimulate wound healing and promote healthy skin is well documented. Manuka Honey is reported to stimulate the immune system and provide the nutrients for cell metabolism and rapid tissue repair. It also contains lactic acid, which aids in the clearing of dead skin cells. The bioactivity of Manuka Honey is referred to as the unique Manuka factor or UMF. This factor is associated with the strong antimicrobial activity of Manuka Honey against bacteria which is the source of skin and wound infections.Manuka Honey is made by bees that use the nectar from flowers that grow on the Manuka bush. It is this nectar that sets Manuka Honey apart from other types of honey in terms of it’s healing properties. The healing benefits of Manuka Honey are its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The components in Manuka Honey that add to its healing activity are hydrogen peroxide, glucose, fructose, lactic acid, vitamin C, niacin and riboflavin. These components make Manuka Honey an ideal combatant to microorganisms that cause skin irritation and infections. It has also been found to be effective against the MRSA bacterium, which is resistant to antibiotics.Because of its extraordinary healing properties, Manuka Honey is now being used as a main ingredient in various health care products as a natural healing agent. Like all honeys, Manuka Honey is sticky and not particularly user-friendly when applied to the skin. As a result, skin creams containing Manuka Honey are a much more viable option. Honeymark International, a manufacturer of Manuka Honey products have developed a variety of skin creams effective in treating conditions such as eczema, arthritis, wounds, burns, etc. “Our products are so effective that people who have tried other products unsuccessfully their entire lives are finally getting good results with our products,” says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. “In addition to Manuka Honey, our products also contain other helpful ingredients that contribute to their effectiveness.”For more information or to purchase Manuka Honey creams, call 1-866-427-7329 or visit Source:
