Water & Honey (Manuka) Extract & Phenoxyethanol & Sodium Benzoate

The Story:

Solely derived from the pollen of the New Zealand tea tree, Manuka Honey contains as many as 80 different substances and offers a wide variety of superb benefits to the skin. The honey contributes to improved moisturization and skin hydration by creating a protective barrier around the dry or damaged skin, allowing the skin to rehydrate properly. It also contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Scientists indicate that Manuka Honey may initiate or accelerate the healing of chronic wounds and assist in the growth of new tissue involved in skin healing. Manuka Honey BT is a multifunctional ingredient suitable for a vast array of cosmetic applications.
