Key ingredients in Manuka Honey Eczema Cream

Manuka Honey UMF 15+

The key ingredient in Active Manuka Honey cream is obviously Manuka honey and it is there for a very good reason in this special cream to treat troubled skin conditions like Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis.

Eczema is a condition suffered by over 30 million people in USA alone and countless more millions in the rest of the world.

Manuka honey has the ability to reduce inflammation, a key indication in eczema, but it goes a lot further because eczema is nearly always accompanied by bacterial infection introduced by scratching, another symptom of eczema infections.

Manuka honey has a third positive effect on eczema, it calms the skin reducing the desire to scratch and further inflame the eczema.

The fourth benefit of Manuka honey is its ability to strengthen the natural immune system making it more difficult for infections to enter.

And one of the greatest benefits of all is that Manuka honey has no negative side effects when applied to the skin, or taken internally.

The Manuka honey that we use in this formula is rated as UMF (unique manuka factor) 15+ which is certified by the Active Manuka Honey Association of New Zealand and has very high antimicrobial properties making it very effective for topical application.
