Living Nature's Natural Saviour



       As New Zealand celebrates its inaugural ‘National Honey Week’, more and more Kiwis are finding out about the benefits of using this home-grown skin care gem.
  Living Nature has long recognised the benefits of Active Manuka Honey and how its active healing properties work in harmony with skin’s natural repair mechanisms.
  Using Active Manuka Honey sourced from a supplier in the Far North region of New Zealand, literally on their doorstep, Living Nature includes this nutrient-rich honey in its skin care products as it possesses naturally powerful hydrating, nourishing, rejuvenating and protective properties.
Living Nature’s International Trainer, Jeanne Balaam, says it’s no surprise Manuka Honey is gaining such prevalence. “This New Zealand honey is used globally in medical applications to assist with burn and wound healing because it possesses a unique antibacterial action as well as powerful antimicrobial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties scientifically proven to promote skin healing.   We have seen many examples of how it helps skin conditions such as acne, including an Australian trialist earlier this year and a recent example where one of our stockists provided a free sample to a young customer who had tried many other products, including medically prescribed acne treatments.  Within just a few days the customer had returned with his head held high and his acne rapidly abating.”
The beauty of Living Nature’s Manuka Honey Gel is that it combines the curative powers of Active Manuka Honey with another botanical unique to New Zealand; Living Nature hero ingredient Manuka Oil.   Revered by Maori for centuries for its natural healing properties, Manuka Oil possesses naturally potent antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, amongst others, which modern research confirms combats the micro-organisms that cause many common skin irritations and infections.  The Cawthron Institute in New Zealand has proven Manuka Oil as effective against 39 separate micro-organisms, including the bacteria that cause acne and MRSA.
Living Nature's Manuka Honey Gel comes in two sizes. There's a larger family version - 50 ml, ideal to keep close to hand in a home or car first aid kit, whilst a handy smaller size - 10 ml, is perfect to pop in your pocket, so it's with you whenever you need it; out and about, or away on holiday.
