液態黃金:曼努卡蜂蜜喺護膚中嘅好處 | Pure gold: the benefits of Mānuka honey in skincare

呢種液態黃金因為並天然嘅抗菌、抗氧化同抗炎特性而喺全世界廣受歡迎。事實證明,佢可以幫助治愈、清潔同舒緩皮膚,甚至可以擊敗抗藥性細菌。

直接使用曼努卡蜂蜜可以修復、舒緩同滋養乾燥嘅皮膚,仲可以幫助醫治濕疹同皮膚炎。含豐富營養成分、維生素、氨基酸同埋天然保濕分子,難怪曼努卡蜂蜜對我哋內外都咁有益。而曼努卡蜂蜜嘅抗菌特性令佢真正與眾不同。

大多數蜂蜜因為含有氧化氫活性(HPA), 所以都會具有中等嘅抗生素特質。但係曼努卡蜂蜜另外仲含有一種稱為甲基乙二醛(MGO)嘅糖分子,雖然呢種糖分子喺大多數蜂蜜中都可以搵到, 但係喺曼努卡蜂蜜入面,MGO含量可以高達100倍。

新西蘭科學家彼得·莫蘭(Peter Molan MBE)博士發現,即使佢破壞曼努卡蜂蜜嘅HPA,同時將佢暴露於高溫、液體同光照下,曼努卡蜂蜜仍然具有好強嘅抗菌作用。呢個歸因於佢高濃度嘅甲乙二醛(methyglyoxal)。博士同佢嘅團隊仲證明咗曼努卡蜂蜜可以抵抗對一般抗生素具有抗藥性嘅細菌。

曼努卡蜂蜜係由蜜蜂喺一棵樸實無華嘅樹採摘到嘅花蜜,呢種樹嚟自野生偏遠嘅新西蘭鄉村。要最大限度咁增加曼努卡蜂蜜嘅數量,就需要廣泛咁將蜂箱放喺曼努卡樹木周圍嘅位置。

曼努卡蜂蜜同其他花蜜一樣聞起嚟都好香,但濃度又比較高,加上營養豐富,所以非常適合用嚟製成天然身體護理產品。我哋最新嘅薄荷蜂蜜洗手液同茉莉花蜂蜜沐浴露含有100多種MGO。茉莉花同蜂蜜同樣具有保濕性,溫柔呵護肌膚。每次沖洗身體時,薄荷同蜂蜜都煥發活力,而茉莉花同蜂蜜嘅迷人香氣會平靜你嘅感官。

This liquid gold is finding fame worldwide for its natural antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s been proven to help heal, cleanse and soothe skin and even beat antibiotic resistant bacteria.

Applied directly, Mānuka Honey is healing, soothing and nourishing for dry, chapped skin and can also help with conditions like eczema and dermatitis. Rich in nutrients, vitamins and amino acids and a soothing natural humectant, it’s no wonder Mānuka honey is touted as being so good for both our insides and our outsides. But it’s Mānuka honey’s antimicrobial properties that really set it apart.

Most honeys have a mild antibiotic quality, thanks to naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide activity (HPA). But Mānuka Honey also contains a sugar molecule called methylglyoxal (MGO), which is found in most honeys. But in Mānuka Honey, MGO can be up to 100x higher.

New Zealand scientist Dr Peter Molan MBE discovered that when he destroyed honey’s HPA, only Mānuka honey was still strongly antibacterial, even after exposing it to heat, liquid and light. This is down to its high concentration of methyglyoxal. He and his team also proved Mānuka Honey could fight bacteria that had become resistant to normal antibiotics.

Made by honeybees from the nectar of an unassuming, scrubby native tree, Mānuka Honey comes from deep within wild, remote New Zealand back country. To maximise the amount of Mānuka nectar in the Honey means placing beehives in locations surrounded by Mānuka trees.

Mānuka Honey also smells delicious – like all honeys do, but with an added richness and complexity – making it perfect for natural body care products. Our new Mint & Mānuka Honey Hand Wash 和 Jasmine & Mānuka Honey Body Wash contain 100+ MGO Mānuka Honey and hydrating harakeke, to leave skin clean, soft and cared for. Mint and Mānuka Honey reinvigorate every time you wash your hands, while Jasmine and Mānuka Honey’s warm, enchanting fragrance calms the senses.
