Isn’t Manuka Honey just...honey?

Manuka Honey is not interchangeable with your standard honey. Known for its ant-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, Manuka Honey is made by bees that feed on the flowers of the Manuka bush, found only in New Zealand. Native New Zealanders have used it as a natural skin remedy for over 2,000 years.

What is Manuka Honey good for?

Doctors have been using Manuka Honey as a wound dressing for years because of its antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes. Manuka honey is a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air, delivers it to the skin, and seals it in to really nourish your skin.

What are the benefits of using Manuka Honey as a part of my skin care routine?

According to Kiwi Botanicals Senior Scientist and Manuka Honey Expert Maria Buck, the vitamins and minerals in Manuka honey can help improve skin tone and texture, and the amino acid profile sloughs away dead skin cells to leave you with a healthy glowing complexion. It balances dry and oily areas on your face, leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean.
