FIRST AID FROM THE HIVE

Manuka Therapy 30% Crème

Thank you so much for developing your Manuka Therapy 30% Honey Creme.

My 3 year old son has quite bad eczema on his arms and legs and psoriasis on his hands, and being a typical active boy he loves playing in the sandpit which does not help his skin at all. While travelling through Alexandra a few weeks ago I was recommended your Manuka Therapy 30% Honey Creme. Within hours he stopped picking at his hands and within a few days his eczema had completely gone behind his knees and elbows. His hands are no longer weeping and have pretty much cleared right up. And all with no steroids. Thank you so much for allowing my son to get through the nights and days without itching. As a mum I was feeling guilty that he was having to live like he was and I don't have to feel that way anymore. So thank you very much.

Hi: I recently purchsead your "manuka therapy" healing propolis for dry irritated skin. To my amazement this product has been extremely beneficial for me and I am very pleased with the product.
S. F., via email, North America

...just to let you know I've recently had quite bad eczema on my fingers and been using steroid cream (reluctantly) for the last 2 months. I've just tried the 30% creme and within 3 days it's almost cleared up, and most of the dryness has gone......Great product, thanks!

Very Hardworkers Handcreme
I have been nursing for 27 years in areas that involve scrubs and frequent handwashing, e.g. midwifery, neo natal intensive care, urodynamics  (my record is 16 scrubs in one day) and now orthopaedic surgery.  As a result  of using handwash solutions the skin on my hands had become constantly painful…. I was very conscious of their appearance.  In desperation a week ago I went to my local pharmacy….The Very Hardworkers Handcreme sounded like me so I bought it and have using it about four times a day.  I cannot believe how much better they look!  Better still they are no longer painful.  I also think my skin is looking less fragile and thin.  They are actually healing!  I am now singing its praises to my collegues.  Thank you for such an excellent product,
Mrs. J. W.,  Christchurch    

Greetings from Texas, U.S.A.!  I am in love with your VERY HARDWORKERS HAND CREAM and have given it as gifts …. The people I have given it to are begging for more!
Via email

A friend bought me a jar of your Very Hardworkers Handcreme – Love it!  I have had a real problem with my hands in the last few years.  I don’t know if I damaged them with fertilizer from the garden or whether fabric dressing is the culprit.  Whatever the reason, I have tried Drs prescriptions, cortisone etc. to no avail.  Your product is the best so far.
Mrs. L.C.,  Canada

…your Very Hardworkers Handcreme is the best and most effective hand care product I’ve ever used.
My hands are in the best condition they’ve ever been in!
Mrs. S.G.,  Perthshire, Scotland

I have been using your hand cream ‘Very Hardworkers Handcreme’ for some time and it has been the only successful application to fix my dry hands.
Ms. C.K.,  Wellington, N.Z.

I have been using it twice daily on my feet, which crack and split, and your crème has helped very much.  I have tried many other creams, but to date, yours is the best.
Ms. S.T.,  Keri Keri, N.Z.

I am a joiner and the best for my ‘hard working hands’ is your Very Hardworkers Handcreme.
Mr. F.W.,  Munich, Germany

I have found that the Very Hardworkers Handcreme is wonderful, not only on the backs of my hands, but I have been putting it on my eyelids which have had an itchy, scaly, dry skin problem and dry eyes (I am 79).  I have found that the crème moistens my eyelids and my eyes are not dry and itchy either.
Mrs. P.H., Tasmania, Australia

Hi! My husband and I truly love the Very Hardworkers Handcreme….We love it so much we bought a few more to bring back to the USA.  It sure is good to find a product that is really very effective.  Thanks for making such a wonderful product!!!
Mrs. A. M-S.,  California, U.S.A.

I am emailing to tell you how much I love your Very Hardworkers Handcreme.  I’ve had dry, cracked hands for as long as I can remember and no product has ever fixed them until I found yours.  I also use it on my feet with great results.  Thank you!
Ms. L. M., Geraldine, New Zealand

Lip Balms
I have just returned from a trip down south and I purchased a stick and pot of your lip balm…The APICARE product is the best I have ever had.  I get very dry lips and cracked sometimes and I have tried every product on the market…Thanking you again for a great product,
L.H.,  South Island

I discovered your lip balm on a visit to New Zealand 5 years ago and I can’t live without it now!  It’s the best one I’ve ever tried and I’ve tried a lot!
Mrs. N.K.,  Via email

Today I was recommended your ‘Protect Me Beeswax Lip Balm’…. I am totally thrilled with the product…I just wanted to let you know that I am one happy customer.
Via email

I would like to tell you how good your Lip Balm is.  I have had sore lips for 10 years and at last they are better, no more flakey skin, and I like to give credit where it is due.  Thank you.
Mrs. J. T.,   Auckland, N.Z.

Re: Revive Me Beeswax Lip Balm
I have found this lip balm the best because it stays on for a long time.
B.R.,  Christchurch, N.Z.

Hi….I am 12 years old.  I am just writing to say that I love your lip balm – ‘Revive Me’ and all of your other products!  They are amazing!!!  My lips were dry and cracking but as soon as I started using your lip balm they became soft and nice…..
Miss. T.D.,  Te Puke, NZ
                        
I have a problem with dry lips and have to use lip balm daily to prevent cold sores.  For years I have been using pharmacy bought lip balms but have found that I was having to use them more often throughout the day.  A friend told me that they have petroleum as an ingredient and that causes you to need to use them more because of it’s almost addictive properties.  She showed me your website and I purchased the Protect Me Lip Balm and I love it.  I’m back to once a day application, have had no cold sores and I’m saving money.  Thank you Apicare.

Rescue Me
...I originally bought this as I was suffering from sever dry lips (no cracking but almost burned with hard red skin and tiny blisters all around the edges).  I initially was going to try the Revive Me Lip Balm, but I had read this was good for burns and as that's what it felt like I figured what the heck, I'd give it a go.
This instantly soothed my lips (after 1.5 months of trying every other product under the sun) and in conjunction with the lip balm healed them completely within 3 days, though I put the majority of the healing down to this gel.  I've sinced used it for mild eczema, sunburn and even as a handcreme (by mistake) and it's worked wonders for everything so far......
I highly recommend this as a staple first aid item for everyone and even carry a little that I've decanted into a little pottle in case of future dry lip emergencies.
Review on a beauty blog website, reprinted with permission of the author.

Just a little thank you for your product.  My wife has just finished her radiation treatment for secondary breast cancer.  She found your Rescue Me product a great help for the burns associated with the treatment.  Prior to using your product she gained permission from her specialist that it was O.K. to use.  As you are probably aware there are very few products that specialists will recommend, due to the residues left behind after the product is removed and prior to radiation therapy.  Thanks very much.
Mr. D.M.,  Australia

This is just a note to say thank you for your wonderful product ‘Manuka Honey & Aloe Vera Gel’.  My son….now spends his life in a wheel chair…from sitting so long he rubbed a blister on his tail bone and the gel had it cleared up in no time………..
Mrs. C.G.,  NSW, Australia

Re: Rescue Me
….it is very effective at relieving sunburn.  Thank you and kind regards,
R.H., ACT, Australia

Hi,
My sister who lives in NZ has sent me your ‘Rescue Me – Manuka Honey & Aloe Vera Gel’ which has made wonders to my skin (face).  I have very dry skin around my mouth and eyes and some trouble with eczema in those areas…Trust me, I’ve tried almost everything from expensive cosmetic brands to products on prescription (doctors order).  So far your product is the best.
M.W., via email, Sweden

I am such a supporter of this product that I even ‘sell’ it to the shop assistants!  The name is so appropriate; it immediately stops the development of any insect bites, it helps with skin irritations, great for after-sun care, it is marvelous when you are like me allergic to grasses….Even after a few minutes, my legs get so itchy that I want to scratch the skin off them.  Bring on Rescue Me!  A quick application, that does not leave my hands greasy and relief is almost instant!!
Ms A.G.,  via email, New Zealand

….Rescue Me Manuka Honey and Aloe Vera Gel.  As a regular user I can say that the new formula is marvelous.  It spreads very smoothly with a clean “non-sticky” feeling on the skin.  I have found it particularly good for cleansing and removing skin blemishes (ROSACEA)…Good on you Recue Me!
Mr. J. H.  Hamilton, New Zealand

Repair Me
I stumbled across your Calendula & Manuka Honey Handcreme two days ago …Since I have very dry, damaged hands I thought I’d give your product a try.  I have tried every product known to man without much luck in softening up my hands. Your product is FABULOUS! I LOVE IT!!!  After the FIRST use my hands were softer. I am using it on my dry feet as well. The scent is lovely as well.
I immediately returned to the store and bought the remaining two tubes…Thanks for making such a terrific product
Kitty,  U.S.A.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I have damaged hands that peel a lot.  I am 75 years old and find your Calendula & Manuka Honey Handcreme very good.
Mrs. A. H.,  Christchurch

Re:  Calendula & Manuka Honey Handcreme
My husband has been using it since his hand operation and it certainly kept the new skin soft.  The doctor and his nurse were impressed…. He likes it as it is not greasy and works nicely into the skin.
Mrs. B. K.,  Dannevirke

I suffer badly from pustular psoriasis on my feet and palms and have started using ‘Repair Me’ with good results…
Ms. S. L.,  Via email

I have a mild psoriasis problem on my elbows and knees.  Moisturisers seem to help best of all and your crème has had a very good effect.
M.R., WI, U.S.A.

Re:  Repair Me
My husband suffers from psoriasis…your lotion makes it better.  No other lotion has done that for him…
Washington, U.S.A.

I felt I must let you know how delighted I am with my purchase of Apicare – repair me handcreme.  For years I have suffered with scaly skin on my hands & feet, recently I suffered a particularly bad bout, nothing, even prescription lotions have relieved it.  I was recently on holiday in Scotland, North Berwick and bought some of the crème.  A miracle – within a week just about all signs of the flaking gone!!
Ms. S. L., North Yorkshire, England

Vitamin E Day Crème
I have been very pleased with this product.  It spreads into my skin beautifully and I haven’t experienced any sensitivity….
N. S.,  Otago, New Zealand

Rich Day Crème
RELIEF – One word to describe what Apicare has done for my skin.  I have dermatitis on my face and eczema on my body.  The skin on my face was flaky, peeling, dry and sore.  The Manuka Rich Day Crème has made my skin smooth and comfortable again.  I am so happy that I am no longer embarrassed to go out in public.  Eczema on my legs is improving all the time also.  After trying so many products it is a big relief to find something that is effective and natural.  Thanks so much Apicare.

Mr. C.L.,  Worcestershire, England

When you said the goods should be with you shortly you surely meant it – I just received the order a little while ago in the mail.  That was five days from the day I ordered it, from NZ to the USA!  Very impressive.  I know your product is wonderful, now I would never hesitate to order it again through your website with service like this.  Thanks again.

C. A.,  Adelaide, Australia

Honey Mango Body Butter
Your products are wonderful, I have extremely dry skin and find your Honey Mango Body Butter a miracle cure.  You now have a very loyal customer!  Thanks again,
Ms. V.S.,  Palmerston North, N.Z.

I can not rave on about the Honey Mango Body Butter crème enough.  Thank you so much, I have no idea what the magic ingredient is but your cream is excellent for curing eczema.  I use the cream myself and have several family members and friends hooked on it too, ranging in ages from 35 to six months old.  I have never used anything that takes out the itch instantly.  For children that’s excellent news … My friends six year old daughter has been clear faced for six months now since using your product.  So once again thank you, thank you.  I just wanted to let you know that not only does it smell so yummy (enough to make me wish I could eat it!) it is a life saver for eczema sufferers.   I will continue to recommend it to anyone that will listen to me.
Ms. I. V R.,  Australia

Dear Sirs;
On a recent trip to New Zealand, I purchased a container of honey mango body butter.  Amazingly it has nearly cured my psoriasis.  I want to purchase more immediately!

Wild Rose & Honey Handcreme
My daughter gave me a tube of your divine rose and honey moisturizer for my birthday.  The scent is just gorgeous….and a friend of mine remarked this morning on my fragrant skin.
Mrs. L.O.,  Kapiti Coast, N.Z.

Wild Rose & Honey Moisturiser
I just wanted to let you know how much I like the products of yours I am using.  A friend gave me the Apicare Wild Rose and Honey Moisturiser.  I have been having problems with my facial skin becoming very dry and flakey, almost like a dermatitis condition.  I threw away the face cream I was using and tried yours instead.  After only a week the difference in my skin condition was quite significant.  It feels soft and supple, the skin is moist without the dry flakiness…..Who needs a cupboard full of different creams when this one seems to do it all?  So thank you for marketing such a wonderful product.
Ms. J. A.,  Waitakere, N.Z.

Sometime ago I purchased your Wild Rose and Honey Moisturiser…..It proved to be one of the best moisturisers I have ever used and retained its perfume till the end…Thank you for producing such an attractive product
Mrs. S. M.,  Masterton, N.Z.

I bought the Honey & Royal Jelly body Crème – it is now my favourite moisturiser!!
Ms. K. C.,  Vic, Australia

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Nelson where I happened upon your Manuka Honey & Royal Jelly Body Crème…What made this one cream stand out was that I tried some on in the morning in the shop, shopped all day, and could still smell it about 4.30pm in the afternoon….I would just like to say, it is not often I find a hand/body cream that leaves a lasting impression….Many thanks for a beautiful product.
Ms. F. D.,  Auckland, N.Z.

I feel I have to write to you about your product ‘Manuka Honey Body Crème’.  I was given some as a birthday gift and I used it of course, BUT I was amazed to find the mild eczema on my hands just cleared completely so I tried some on the patches of eczema on my face and they to disappeared.  I have since given the name of your crème to various people with skin complaints and they to have reported back to me, full of enthusiasm at the great results they have experienced.  So THANK YOU – it’s really good stuff.
Ms. H. C.,  Matamata, N.Z.
