3% Manuka, 1% Bakuchiol, Astaxanthin, > 95.6% Squalane From Olives
Manuka honey is native to New Zealand. Traditionally the honey was used to treat cuts, sores and even burns.
Many studies have been published on Manuka 1 , 2 , 3 and all show antimicrobial, anti-fungal and wound healing proprieties due to a component called β-triketones. Some studies showed that manuka oil inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes the bacteria that involved in acne.
Our Manuka oil is sourced from New Zeeland and has a content of over 20% MBTK.
Manuka oil in Squalane can be used anywhere on the face or body.
In addition to Manuka, this formulation has Bakuchiol, which apart from anti-aging benefits has shown good antibacterial and excellent fungicide activity. Finally, we used Astaxanthin, the most powerful antioxidant in cosmetics, for a synergistic effect. Astaxanthin is found in salmons (wild ones), flamingos etc. It is reputed to be 6000 times more powerful than vitamin C.
