Derived from New Zealand, manuka honey is a nourishing natural ingredient. It has been used for centuries due to its incredible healing and anti-bacterial properties. A key ingredient in both traditional and modern medicine, it has been used to treat acne, eczema, burns, wounds and ulcers. Boasting up to 100 times more antibacterial methylglyoxal (MG) than other types of honey, manuka is top of its game which is why many beauty companies include it in their products. British beauty brand SBC Gels pioneer miracle manuka so we caught up with the team to find out their top five reasons why.
1. It’s repairing
Manuka honey soothes and nourishes fragile and stressed skin resulting in improved skin health.
2. It can provide daily protection
Manuka is used to soothe the most sensitive and delicate of skin. Providing nourishment and effective daily protection for a smoother, healthier complexion.
3. It can calm inflammation
Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, manuka honey reduces redness. And relieves congested or inflamed skin.
4. It contains hydrating properties
When applied to your skin, it will hydrate the skin. As well as absorb moisture from the air to promote a dewy and glowing complexion.
5. Great for anti-ageing
Because of its moisturising properties, manuka hydrates skin without making it oily which is the first step to wrinkle-free skin.
