Our Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Duo
Hard-working bees living in remote parts of New Zealand collect nectar from one of the world’s most famous sources of healing properties – the manuka tree. Grown in wild locations around New Zealand’s beautiful coastal regions, this tree has learned to survive extreme temperatures and winds, resulting in a plant with impressive health-generating benefits.
Renowned for its health-generating properties, manuka honey has been used for wound healing, digestion and for tinctures. Manuka honey is a powerful ingredient for skin formulations, as its antibacterial* nature helps promote youthful, fresh and blemish-free skin.
Bee venom is another unique ingredient with benefits for your skin. The venom is collected via a gentle harvesting process, whereby bees fly free afterwards. At minute concentrations, this bioactive ingredient gives a mild stimulating effect, resulting in a tightening feeling for firmer skin.
Vinanza Grape & Kiwi, from grape seeds and kiwifruit, is an antioxidant-rich compound with a proven brightening effect**. It is scientifically shown to brighten and lighten skin through inhibiting melanin production (which is responsible for age spots and freckles), reduce skin redness and keep skin moist and supple.
We harness the healing power of manuka honey in two new ultra-moisturising skincare essentials:
Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream features bee venom, Vinanza grape and kiwi seed to restore a light and fresh visage. Bee venom and mamaku black fern provide a gentle lifting effect. World-famous manuka honey helps address any skin blemishes. Revolutionary Vinanza antioxidants from grape seeds and kiwi work with peony flower for the ultimate skin-bright finish.
Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream with Persian silk flower helps hydrate and freshen under-eye tissue. Manuka honey has world-renowned moisturising and soothing prowess. This luxury formulation introduces Persian silk flower blended with revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza grape seed and kiwi skin to brighten delicate skin.
Both formulations are suited to most skin types, especially oily, and feature the purest, most environmentally sustainable honey, manuka honey.
