Over the last few years I have been trying and applying a variety of Manuka honey based products. Some for health reasons, others for ever more needed beautifying effects.
I have comprised a list of 17 products (not all tested by me), that I believe can have a great benefit on your overall health and self-esteem. And believe me, these are good for both, men and women.
Do not wait, start thinking about your health today!
I first came across this after a small cooking accident. I burnt myself on the frying pan, screamed in agonizing pain, applied some cold water and a bandage and ran to the local pharmacy.
My friend, who works there, offered me this UMF 15+ wound dressing, knowing that I am into Manuka honey products to begin with.
See, Manuka has incredibly strong anti-bacterial properties and as such, it is a great for applying to burns and open wounds. Within a day my burnt would had closed completely, and the pain was gone.
I highly recommend you keep a small bottle of this in your kitchen cabinet. Especially, if you are a lousy cook like I am.
This dressing paste has the same application as the BIO one. I like Medihoney because they have a great line of Manuka healing products that actually work.
This specific paste is advantageous to wound healing because it has high osmolality and low levels of pH – unique properties known to Manuka honey.
This eye cream will do wonders for the skin under your eyes and eyelids. If your skin feels rough, dry, itchy or flaky, this Manuka product is for you.
It smells delicious, it is not greasy, and you will see positive results within two-three days. It is chemically free, its main ingredient is Manuka honey, and as such, it will not irritate your eyes.
Using this eye cream will rejuvenate your skin within days and you will feel much softer and smoother. Dry, swollen, sore and flaky – no more!
This soothing moisturizer by Wild Naturals absorbs quickly, it will no irritate your skin, and it has a UMF of 12+.
It is often used against conditions such as, cracked, irritated, red, inflamed, and extra dry skin. However, it can also be applied to eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin known diseases.
Besides the unique properties of the Manuka honey, this cream is packed with a variety of vitamins that help strengthen your skin. Natural Aloe Vera, nourishing hemp seed oil and hydrating coconut oil are just a few of the amazing ingredients packed in this moisturizer.
Besides that it is extremely rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, it also has a special grade of blue green algae. This powerful formula has a balanced pH of 5.5 (just like your skin) and it delivers trace minerals directly to your skin cells.
This jar will last your for 5-6 months.
Era Organic’s natural moisturizer offers a complete skin care. If you love your skin and you want to empower it with vitamins, this is the cream for you.
I have been using this product for about three months now. And I can certainly say that this is the superfood for your skin. It offers deep hydration, like no other moisturizer, repairs and protects your skin.
I have not used this product against acne or similar skin issues. However, people have been reporting positive results when applied against various skin diseases cystic adult acne.
I am also not sure about the UMF grade of the Manuka honey, but I know it works. You might take some time getting used to the smell. I would describe it as a reminiscent of ricotta and honey.
This is another or Era Organics’ products and it goes hand in hand with their moisturizer.
I use this face wash once in the morning and once in the evening before I apply the moisturizer. Within a week I felt like my face’s skin was completely detoxed.
Great organic cleanser, also not too expensive, compared to other products.
Rich in vitamins A and E, this Manuka based product is getting less attention then it deserves. If your skin needs an extra boost of rejuvenation, this is the product you want to buy.
This serum will soak into your skin right away, and you will begin to feel its soothing effects. It works great on sensitive skin that gets easily irritated.
This is no magical serum, but you can see its positive effects overnight. People have reported being acne free in 2 months or so of using this Wild Ferns’ product.
For a better effect, it can be applied after you have applied a Manuka based oil.
I take these as candy! Delicious and gluten free lozenges!
Whether you have a sore throat, or you just need a candy treat, I highly recommend this product. The lozenges are sweet, but with a mild flavour and leave no aftertaste.
Want to try a different soap? Have a crack at this Manuka based hydrating soap.
This natural product has far less ingredients then your regular soap. As such, it does not leave your skin dry, it rather hydrates it. The difference is, that most soaps have glycerine, while this soap has Manuka honey extract.
Use this soap to cleanse your skin and enhance with the aroma of Manuka.
Awesome cream for firming loose skin. It has a light scent and it is not greasy at all.
Lanoline offers a rich, creamy formula that will rejuvenate your face’s skin without leaving it oily or greasy afterwards. A jar will last you a long time, because the substance is very creamy and spreadable. You don’t need much to cover your entire face.
Also, compared to similar products, it is reasonably priced and it will last you longer.
Innisfree’s Manuka mask is amazing. It is advertised as increasing the moisture level of your skin by 119 percent. I cannot say if the percentage formula is true or false. I can only say that my skin feels amazing after applying this mask.
Unfortunately, there have been reports of fake Innisfree products. One way to tell if you got the real mask, is by the smell. Innisfree’s masks have an unforgettable smell. Fake products will it you with an alcoholic smell. Stay away from those and return them to the vendor right away.
This body wash offers a great fresh smell and smoothing effect on your skin. While it does contain Manuka honey, be aware, this product also has als, fragrance and artificial coloring.
It does make your skin feel great, but it is not meant for the lovers of organic-only products.
This organic Manuka soothing cream is completely natural. It consists of nut-free oils, organic beeswax, filtered water, olive oil and grape seed oil. So, you should not be worried about side effects or unexpected rashes after applying it.
It smells fantastic and it helps fight eczemas, psoriasis, and rosacea. Mother-recommended, which means that it is completely safe for children.
Manuka honey and lemon lollipops! Delicious! Not sure what else to say.
East Cape’s Manuka honey oil has amazing healing qualities.
Advertised as anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral, this oil will do wonders for your acne and other skin conditions. You can use it against insect bites, Poison Ivy, cuts and wounds, and even MRSA.
This oil is somewhat similar to Tea Tree oil, but it is reported to be far more potent and effective.
People have reported some amazing results using it for a variety of skin conditions and diseases. I have personally not had the need to use this oil, but I think it would be worth the try.
Unlike most other products, this one is not from New Zealand, but it is made in Australia. It consists 30 percent of UMF 15+ Manuka honey and it is reported to calm dry skin through its powerful antioxidants.
If you can get used to the sunscreen-like smell, you will not have any other issues with the ointment.
I came across this hair loss Manuka based shampoo while doing some research on the internet. I have not tried it, thank God, my hair is still in place, but I certainly find it interesting.
It is an all organic shampoo, with no added water or chemicals. It appears to be very rich on vitamins C & E as well as various minerals.
Being paraben-free, sulfate-free and fragrance free is all nice and dandy, but I cannot tell you for sure that it will prevent hair loss.
There are some positive and unbiased reviews by customers who claim the shampoo did lower the rate at which they were losing their hair.
So, there you have it, 16 if not amazing, then at least interesting Manuka honey based products for you to try out.
There are more products, such as toothpastes that I have intentionally left out of this list because of their impurity. By impurity I mean non-organic ingredients.
Be very careful if buying a Manuka toothpaste. I have yet to find one that is completely organic and natural. Most of them contain Sorbitol and Glycerine. Kind of defeats the purpose of advertising and selling a healthy and organic product.
