Why Manuka Honey?

Where Does Manuka Honey Come From?

All Honeyskin products contain raw Manuka honey sourced on New Zealand’s North Island.

Manuka honey is produced by local honey bees, who pollinate the flowers of the Leptospermum Scoparium tree (manuka bush), native only to New Zealand. It’s the Manuka flower working with the bee that produces nectar with characteristic and unique signature compounds. The levels of these compounds determine how high the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are in the honey.

Once the bees produce this special honey, it is then harvested by professional, Unique Manuka Factor® Honey Association (UMF) registered beekeepers, packaged, then shipped by way of our registered UMF distributor to us for use in all of our products.

The UMF® rating of the honey used in our products is 12+.
