The idea behind Organic Glow started after hopeless efforts to find a solution for my 2-year old’s eczema. He was itchy, sore, red and inflamed. No matter what ointment I bought at the pharmacy, nothing offered a solution. I began my research, day and night and vowed to find something to help him. After countless hours on the internet, I discovered the benefits of honey on your skin. Honey is one of nature’s best secrets for skin remedies.
I began to wonder, if there is so much clinical evidence on the health benefits of regular honey, what would be the benefits of a more potent honey such as manuka?
Manuka honey has been used in medical settings for years and can be used without the harmful side effects of lab-created antibacterial ointments.
I learned that manuka honey’s antibacterial properties are what set it apart from traditional honey. Manuka honey has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It has traditionally been used to aid wound healing, decrease local inflammation caused by acne, and as a natural remedy for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
This stuff is magic!
I tried manuka on my son, it soothed his skin and reduced the redness and itchiness from his eczema.
I have never looked back.
Best part …it is anti-aging! Manuka honey is packed with natural antioxidants that help ward off damage caused by free radicals, such as the appearance of wrinkles!
I believe in this product so much that I use it day and night on myself! Everywhere!
I use it all over my face, as a lip balm, and on any dry skin patches.
Manuka has been shown to increase collagen, my skin feels healthier, firmer and more youthful!
What strength/ concentration of manuka honey is best?
To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, manuka honey needs a minimum rating of UMF 10+.
The ideal potency rating is between UMF (unique manuka factor) of 10 and 18. Some have reported sensitivity to manuka honey above UMF 20 because of its strength.
Organic Glow sources manuka honey at a UMF of 16+
