Both manuka and kanuka have antibacterial, antiviral and astringent properties which are useful for minor conditions of the skin. Kanuka is beneficial in the treatment of cold sores and manuka has lovely skin healing properties and a delightful natural smell.
This natural balm combines wildcrafted manuka and kanuka with organic New Zealand beeswax, high in vitamin A, to help heal the skin tissue and moisturise without blocking pores. Organic cold pressed olive oil is also used in this soothing balm as it contains natural vitamin A and E, both of which have antioxidant and repairing properties.
