Mel (Manuka Honey) UMF15
Some Manuka Honey has unique healing factors. This is known as UMF Unique Manuka Factor which refers to the level of anti bacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of all honeys.
Manuka UMF has also been shown to diffuse deeper into skin tissues.
Manuka honey is tested for its level of activity and issued a number. So a rating of 10 indicates the same level of antiseptic potency of a 10% solution of Phenol (carbolic disinfectant). The higher the rating, the higher the level of activity.
All the Manuka used in Apicare products has been tested and certified by an indpendent laboratory.
In addition to its anti bacterial abilities Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therfore, very hydrating. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and has demonstrated the ability to accelerate tissue repair, aiding in skin repair and the reduction of scarring.
