How To Make Manuka Body Lotion

Before we go into details of today production; I will like to educate us on what is Manuka Honey, and what makes it so different from other types of honey.

Manuka Honey is made by bees that pollinate the Manuka flower, which is native to New Zealand and blooms just 2-6 weeks per year. Manuka Honey can only be produced in areas abundant with native Manuka blossoms, which is why our hives are located in some of the most remote, untouched parts of New Zealand.

Why Is Manuka Honey So Special?

Besides the fact that manuka honey is derived from one specific plant, it has some other qualities that make it stand out. Because honey is rich in sugar and has a low pH, it’s able to thwart bacterial growth. Yet, manuka honey has a compound called methyl glyoxal (MGO), which comes from the phytochemical found in the nectar of certain flowers in New Zealand. MGO has some toxic properties, but there is no evidence to suggest that is damages human cells. On the contrary, manuka honey appears to be damaging to bacterial cells, which promotes healing.

Manuka honey also contains a group of antioxidants called phenols, and these contribute to the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of the honey. “It has higher levels of antioxidant phenolic compounds than other honey, so it has been shown to contain strong antimicrobial properties.”

Yet, with these benefits, it’s important to remember that manuka honey is a sugar—one tablespoon has 70 calories and 16 grams of sugar, without any protein or fiber.

What Is The Difference Between Manuka Honey And My Local Honey?

Aside from where it was harvested, the nectar of the Manuka flower gives Manuka Honey its unique non-peroxide activity properties. The UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) rating number on every jar of Comvita represents the unique signature compounds characteristic of real Manuka Honey, which ensures purity and quality. These compounds include the key markers of Leptosperin, DHA and Methylglyoxal (MGO). Comvita offers Manuka Honey in UMF® grades of 5+, 10+, 15+ and 20+ (each with increasing Methylglyoxal (MGO) content and level of scarcity due to crop yields).
