Manuka Honey has a ‘Unique Manuka Factor’ (UMF) which refers to its level of non-peroxide antibacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of all honeys. It has also been shown to diffuse deeper into skin tissues.
Manuka Honey is tested for its level of non-peroxide activity and issued with 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 activity level is, and therefore the greater the healing ability.
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.
Jojoba Oil is extracted from the bean like seeds of the desert shrub Simmondsia. It is a liquid wax used for its moisturising and anti-inflammatory qualities. Jojoba Oil is a hypoallergenic plant oil rich in Vitamin E and is also a natural anti-oxidant. The chemical constituents of Jojoba Oil are very similar to those of human sebum making it an ideal skin care ingredient. It also has some anti-bacterial abilities, is a wonderful natural moisturiser and is well known for its ability not to clog pores and to help restore the skins regular pH.
