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 antibacterial 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 independent laboratory.
In addition to its antibacterial abilities, Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therefore, 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.
Macadamia Nut (Macadamia Ternifolia) Oil
Macadamia Nut oil has the highest content of Palmitoleic acid of any plant. This acid is naturally present in the sebum of young people but decreases with age making Macadamia oil ideal for dry and mature skins.
The oil is easily absorbed by the skin and is therefore a great skin softener and mosituriser. It also contains high levels of Vitamin E. Very safe to use on sensitive and babies skin.
