What is Manuka Honey and how does it work?
Active Manuka Honey is a pure, natural, un-pasteurized organic honey produced by bees that collect nectar from the Manuka Bush also known as the Tea Tree Bush or Melaleuca Bush (Leptospermum).It acts as an anti-inflammatory and reduces or eliminates unpleasant odor (malodor) from oozing wounds. It helps protect against damage caused by bacteria and helps repair tissue damage from infection.
In addition to fighting infections, Active Manuka Honey helps to reduce scarring by creating a moist healing environment, gently lifting the scab while new skin cells are generated. This creates a level surface for the new skin cells, minimizing the visibility of scars.
What makes Wound Honey different from other forms of Manuka Honey available?
In addition to Active Manuka Honey, Wound Honey contains natural Aloe Vera, a known anti-inflammatory which acts as an additional natural emollient and antiseptic. Aloe Vera is used for skin conditions such as eczema, burns and minor cuts.
Wound Honey also contains Panthenol, a non-irritating form of Vitamin B which has moisturizing properties. When this natural, hydrating vitamin is applied externally it penetrates into lower skin layers, gets absorbed into the skin cells and turns into Pantothetic Acid (also known as Vitamin B). The addition of Panthenol helps to speed up the regeneration of new skin cells and creates a moist environment that reduces scarring.
Key Factors to Wound Honey
If you wish to minimize scarring, it is recommended that you continue to use Wound Honey for several weeks after the wound has completely healed.
