New Zealand Manuka honey and essential oil have been the subject of extensive scientific studies over many years which have proven their powerful antimicrobial properties able to control a wide range of bacteria, fungi, yeasts and viruses that cause common skin conditions.
Common skin conditions include Ringworm, Eczema, Dermatitis, Athletes foot, Candida Albicans, Nail fungus, Herpes, Warts and Verrucas.
Manuka essential oil also has powerful acaricidal properties able to eliminate external parasites Scabies and Head Lice.
These unique properties have led Manuka Natural to develop natural products specifically formulated to address individual skin conditions.
Research institutions including the Cawthron Institute in Nelson New Zealand and the Universities of Otago and Waikato in New Zealand have led much of this research and testing against a range of pathogens with outstanding results compared to other floral sources of honey and compared to other well documented essential oils.
For example the Cawthron Institute found that Manuka essential oil (East Cape Chemotype) was up to 30 times more effective against gram positive bacteria than Australian Tea Tree oil and 4 times more effective against a selection of skin fungi.
Manuka UMF honey with high levels of the compound methylglyoxal was proven to control a range of bacteria, even bacteria which had become resistant to conventional antibiotics such as the so called hospital bug MRSA.
These studies have led to widespread acceptance among the once sceptical medical community with the recent approval of the FDA in many countries.
Applications for Manuka UMF honey continue to grow with the increasing concerns about antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. The recent launch of FDA Approved Manuka honey impregnated bandages into USA for the treatment of infections, burns and leg ulcers is just one example.
The success of Manuka UMF honey and essential oil in these medical applications has led to the development of a range of products for topical use in the home.
Many skin conditions are related to an imbalance in the bacterial and fungal skin flora. While these conditions are usually quite simple to treat with natural Manuka extracts, they can be distressing for the people who suffer from these minor skin infections especially for children.
There are also justified concerns about the reported side effects of some synthetic pharmaceutical products; such as drugs taken internally for the treatment of acne which can result in thinning skin, and damage to kidney function. Another drug taken internally for foot and nail fungus has reported potential damage to liver function.
Manuka honey and essential oil used as directed has no known side effects and has had outstanding success in treating common topical skin disorders.
