Active manuka honey is made of nectar from a wild bush that grows only in New Zealand. This special honey is prized by the local population for its almost magical healing properties. A wide variety of manuka honey products are produced there, and are then sold all over the world.

So powerful are the antibacterial and antifungal powers of active manuka honey, that studies are being conducted right now to see if it is effective in the treatment skin ulcers - related to staph infections - that are resistant to commonly used antibiotics.

There are also various manuka honey products that are sold as food. The natives there love it for its smooth texture and rich taste. It is said to taste far better than the traditional clover honeys most commonly used as a food source.

Now we are also seeing the introduction of active manuka honey into the world of cosmetics. A cosmetics company based in New Zealand has made a special partnership with a U.S. company to use a patented process that converts the honey into a potent powder. In this form it can be effectively used in cosmetics formulas.

Manuka honey products such as these can have a powerful healing effect on many skin conditions. The honey is an excellent tool in healing and fighting off acne and other minor blemishes. It has also proven itself very successful in the treatment of other more serious skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.

Clinical studies conducted by scientists at Waikato University in New Zealand have documented that active manuka honey supports the skin's natural cell renewal process. The studies proved that the honey can do other things to support the healthy appearance of your skin, as well.

Another thing that manuka honey products can do for you is to help you in the formation of stronger collagen. This is especially exciting when you consider this implication alongside the following breakthrough that the manufacturer of these cosmetics products has made.

The company's research department has actually discovered a strain of keratin, a protein necessary in the formation of skin tissue, that will literally force the collagen stores in your body to build back up to more "youthful" levels. The fact that active manuka honey will make this new tissue even stronger is amazing in itself.

The New Zealand company's manuka honey products have many more features as well, such as an antioxidant combination known as Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10. This potent combination of Natural vitamin E and emulsified CoenzymeQ10 give their products the power they need to effectively control existing free radicals in your skin, and to repair the damage that they have caused.

Active manuka honey is an extremely powerful antioxidant in its own right, and will aid this cause as well. Also, Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10, when combined with vitamin B5, works to form a natural sunscreen to protect you from the effects of UV radiation.

These manuka honey products are the cutting edge of the cosmetics world, and you might want to give them a try.
