Apicare New Zealand - Natural NZ Manuka Honey Skin Care
*

< Back

first aid from the hive

The skin on our hands can age more rapidly than other parts of the body, as the skin on the backs of our hands has very few sebaceous glands, and almost totally lacks any natural fatty coating. Add to this regular exposure to detergents and weather extremes and it becomes apparent that our hands need top quality skin care.

Our First Aid from the Hive range contains two intensive hand crèmes specially formulated for hands:
Repair Me Calendula & Manuka Honey Handcrème for dry and damaged skin (available in 130g and 70g tubes).
Very Hardworkers Handcrème for extremely damaged skin: a very rich crème designed to help cracked and very damaged skin.

a true story...
There is a little story about our apicare lip balm and we would like to share it with you. Chas (the beekeeper) and our son used to belong to the Bethells Surf Lifesaving Club. Bethells is a beach on the West Coast of Auckland.
The west coast has large surf and black sand, which in the summer gets very hot under the sun. Chas had problems with his lips, they were continually dry and often cracked. When I looked at the ingredients in the lip balms he had been using I noticed that they were all using petroleum bases.
The ingredients in these lip balms just did not provide enough protection. We formulated a lip balm packed with natural ingredients and tested the formula. It passed all the tests and the dry, cracked lips disappeared forever.

protect me beeswax lip balm
protect me beeswax lip balm

After introducing Revive Lip Balm we were asked to do a lip balm with a sun protection factor and in a wind up stick. So we did. The pure New Zealand beeswax base helps reduce moisture loss from the skin and produces a great protective barrier. Same great formula as Revive Me Lip Balm but with the addition of SPF15 for use in all weathers.

very hardworkers handcreme
very hardworkers handcreme

This is one of our most popular products, and has been for past 20 years. It is a thick beeswax balm packed with Sweet Almond & botanical oils to replace the lost oils in your skin, and UMF 15+ Manuka honey to hydrate. It really works! Not just for hands, use also on knees, elbows, heels and cuticles. Massage well into your cracked skin until your skin can't absorb any more cream. This cream has a lot of natural plant oils so when you first apply your skin will feel a little oily. The oil will be absorbed into the skin, the speed of this will depend on how dry your skin is. Using the cream before you go to bed is a good idea as it gives the crème all night to be absorbed. Using cotton socks or gloves overnight is recommended for maximum moisturizing. Use Very Hardworkers Handcreme to repair VERY damaged skin. Including skin that is suffering nicks and splits.

Rich, thick and creamy but not greasy. Great for skin on any part of the body. Restore Me Body Butter contains nourishing volumes of UMF 15+ Manuka honey to hydrate, Aloe Vera to soothe and oils of Macadamia, Sweet Almond and Jojoba to nourish the skin. The use of natural plant oils rather than mineral oils (that appear in many body butters currently on the market) mean that our body butters really do nourish and feed dry skin. This great body butter forms a protective layer and helps seal in moisture.
