Active Manuka Honey
Honey was used historically to treat a variety of skin conditions. Research has
shown that honey has nutraceutical activity. Some varieties are simply more “active” than others. Manuka honey has
proven to be more active than any other variety. It is a type of mono-floral honey, meaning that the bees who make
it gather pollen only from one variety of plant, in this case the manuka bush. The healing properties likely come

Wakame has natural anti-inflammatory activity which helps reduce swelling
associated with pimples, pustules, cysts and other blemishes. The ingredient can also reduce redness and help to
even out skin discolorations.
