Antipodes’ Superfood – Manuka Honey
5 September 2020
Manuka Honey – A superfood from New Zealand nature – exceptional and organic skincare from Antipodes
Manuka Honey, it’s one of the world’s great superfoods. This high-performance bioactive ingredient helps to promote youthful, fresh and blemish-free skin. Manuka honey is surprisingly rare, it is only made in New Zealand and is made from the nectar of the native Manuka plant (Leptospermum scoparium) which bees collect and transform into Manuka honey, it is the nectar of the manuka plant that makes this honey so different from the rest. It can only be made for a few weeks in a year when the Manuka plant is in flower.
Ever since scientists discovered manuka honey’s superior healing qualities – greater than any other honey due to high concentrations of a special compound called methylglyoxal – manuka honey has become sought after for skincare.
In fact, when used in natural skincare, antioxidant-rich manuka honey works as a humectant, drawing vital moisture into the skin and hydrating, moisturising, nourishing, rejuvenating and restoring its natural glow.
Manuka honey is at the heart of many of the cleansing and moisturising products in Antipodes’ range of scientifically validated natural skincare. Specifically, manuka honey can help your complexion:
• Clear blemishes, thanks to its ability to act as a bacterial barrier
• Draw moisture, keeping it hydrated and supple and helping to restore its natural glow
• Protect the skin from harmful UV rays
• Balance pH levels.
Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream helps to restore a light and fresh visage, while Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream has award-winning moisturising and anti-inflammatory prowess to help hydrate and freshen under-eye tissue; and Aura Manuka Honey Mask infuses the skin with moisture and tends to unwanted blemishes.
The rich manuka honey used in Antipodes creamy formulations is produced in New Zealand by bees who harvest the nectar from the petite pink and white flowers of wild-grown native manuka shrubs in remote parts of New Zealand, so there’s no impact to the environment.
The premium manuka honey that Antipodes uses in its skincare is sustainably harvested by Watson & Son, a New Zealand company based in the Wairarapa which specialises in its production, and whose cornerstones of sustainability, quality and science fit perfectly with Antipodes’ own.
