Water & Honey (Manuka) Extract
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.
Manuka Honey BT is developed with BCR’s unique extraction technology that uses plant derived enzymes to simplify complex botanical actives so they are more easily absorbed by the skin. Thus, saving the skin energy to be used for cellular communication and self-repair for overall wellness. Highly effective proprietary enzymes allow for the use of minimal plant material with maximum yield of beneficial nutrients. As such, BCR’s BioTransformed extracts are sustainable, eco-friendly and cost effective.
In vivo moisturization study on 30 female subjects over 4 weeks shows significant improvement with use of a cream with 5% Manuka Honey BT compared to the cream with standard Manuka Honey and the control cream.
