    Manuka Honey Benefits for Skin Infections

    In our quest for the best-looking skin and hair, we hanker after the latest commercial creams and serums, overlooking a natural, organic, and readily available remedy. 

    Manuka honey is one such organic ingredient with an abundance of beneficial compounds, particularly methylglyoxal (MGO) that promotes skin health.

    Raw honey has been celebrated over millennia for its antibacterial and antiviral properties. The presence of antioxidants boosts the ability to fight inflammation.

    Manuka honey is decidedly a superior source of infection-fighting compounds.  These observations are no longer limited to traditional medicine but have been tested in the lab.

    Manuka honey helps balance the bacteria on your skin and drain out the germs hiding under your cysts and pimples. It prevents bacterial growth that causes flareup in acne and other skin conditions including staph and athlete’s foot.

    In fact, recent studies show manuka to be more effective in treating acne than some popular topical applications.

    With inflammation diminishing effects, Manuka provides much-needed relief against adverse skin reactions like psoriasis, paronychia, and eczema that lead to scaly, itchy, and sore patches. 

    The healing ability never ceases to amaze us, as this unique honey works its magic on scars and blemishes and lets them fade away.

    Keeping a jar of premium manuka honey in your medicine cabinet is an excellent idea. This honey is not only effective against skin infections, but it also nourishes your skin.

    Manuka Honey Benefits for Everyday Skincare

    Have you ever wondered why many skincare products boast about honey being a key ingredient?

    It’s for the simple reason that honey is a natural moisturizer and exfoliator. Manuka in your face mask provides moisture to dry skin and keeps it supple. If you’re wondering whether this works on oily skin, rest assured it does. Your skin remains moist but not oily, and you won’t need those face-blotting tissues.

    Besides, it strips away dull and dead skin cells from your face revealing fresh and young skin cells underneath. Your sensitive skin can avoid harsh chemicals that could irritate it.

    We recommend healing honey for the entire family (except children below the age of one).

    Medicinal Manuka Honey - MGO Grades Explained

    Premium medicinal Manuka honey is defined as high-grade MGO Manuka honey that is scientifically tested for its curative compounds such as antioxidants, bioflavonoids, and immune-boosting enzymes.

    This honey presents higher levels of MGO (Methylglyoxal) when compared to table-grade Manuka honey and is naturally bio-active with anti-bacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties for the holistic prevention and treatment of various health ailments.

    Commonly known uses include burns, wounds, infection, oral care, ulcers, gut health, cold & flu, sore throat, cough, immunity building, general well-being, and beauty and skincare. 

    The higher the MGO number of the Manuka Honey, the stronger its antimicrobial bioactivity levels and the more potent the natural medicinal benefits.

    The MGO levels of Biosota’s high-strength medicinal Manuka honey ranges are regularly tested and verified authentic by independent accredited laboratories both in Australia and New Zealand.
