PRODUCED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GOOD AND MANUKARX
If we asked you to think of a plant-derived oil that helps clear skin – for most it may be tea tree oil that springs to mind.
It may therefore come as a surprise to hear that New Zealand has its very own essential oil that outshines the world-famous Australian tea tree.
Extracted from the leaves of mānuka plants on the rugged East Cape of New Zealand, East Cape mānuka oil is thirty three times more effective than tea tree oil in killing skin bacteria that cause acne and other skin concerns.
The essential oil is so effective it has also been proven to be one thousand times more powerful than mānuka honey against skin bacteria.
If that isn’t impressive enough, the botanical oil is one of the most powerful anti-bacterial essential oils on the planet, helping to clear skin and prevent breakouts.
And it does so naturally.
So what is it that makes the botanical oil so good at protecting, clearing and nourishing? It is filled with potent triketones – chemical compounds which have powerful anti-bacterial properties.
By harnessing these properties, the team at ManukaRx has created a homegrown skincare range that fights acne and blemishes naturally, with science at the core of what they do.
“We use mānuka oil because of its proven efficacy. Mānuka oil is great for acne because it kills acne causing bacteria on the skin. It reduces skin inflammation, accelerates wound healing and reduces scarring by stimulating collagen production” says Dr Suki Harding, director and head of research and development at ManukaRx.
Their Ultimate Blemish Control Routine skincare set is made up of four essential skincare products, perfect for helping with the prevention of breakouts and reducing acne scars.
Together the Foaming Face Wash, Blemish Oil, Blemish Control Gel and Clearing Cream aid with the fight against long-term acne prevention.
“East Cape mānuka oil helps to create a beautifully clear complexion and works as a complete skincare treatment” says Dr Harding.
But ManukaRx hasn’t created a product that is just good for your skin, they’ve helped the East Cape and its community too.
By sustainably sourcing mānuka oil they’ve been part of a programme that has seen over 1 million mānuka trees planted in the region.
The sustainable production of mānuka oil has created an economic lifeline for the remote East Cape, creating jobs for locals living in this area of the country.
