Applying Manuka honey to wound

  • Infected wound resulting from injury or surgery
  • Burns

Why does Natural Wound Care Honey work so well?

High osmolality

Honey is a saturated or supersaturated solution of sugars that has strong interaction with water molecules. The lack of ‘free’ water inhibits the growth of microorganisms.

Hydrogen peroxide

When honey is diluted by wound exudates, hydrogen peroxide is produced via a glucose oxidase enzyme reaction. This is released slowly to provide antibacterial activity but does not damage tissue.

Antibacterial phytochemicals

Some honeys still have antimicrobial activity even when hydrogen peroxide activity has been removed. The honey from Manuka trees, Leptospermum scoparium (native to Australia) and Leptospermum Polygalifolium (also known as Jellybush Honey) –  has been found to have high levels of this antibacterial phytochemical.

Essential for your First Aid Kit

All our Australia’s Manuka Honeys are sourced from the pristine North Coast of New South Wales and cold extracted to preserve the active enzymes. Our tubed Natural Wound Care honey is tested by independent laboratories to guarantee consistent and accurate activity ratings (Unique Leptospermum Factor or ULF).
