Manuka honey and Propolis have long been hailed as hero ingredients. We all know that bees make Honey from nectar but what you might not know is that they also make a substance called Propolis from tree sap and buds. Propolis has long been considered to have medicinal properties, with ancient civilisations using it for everything from treating wounds to embalming mummies.(1) It has a high level of flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, and can have anti-fungal properties too.

Manuka honey is both moisturising and antimicrobial meaning that it not only fights bacteria it hydrates and soothes skin too. Its high sugar content means it prevents most microorganisms from growing by limiting the available water plus the antibacterial compound called methylglyoxal (MGO) increases the antibacterial effect.

The importance of honey has also been documented in the world’s oldest medical literatures and since ancient times it has been known to possess antimicrobial property as well as wound-healing activity. The healing property of honey is because it offers antibacterial activity, maintains a moist wound condition and its high viscosity helps provide a protective barrier to prevent infection.

Honey inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungi by reducing their development on the skin surface. Honey is particularly suitable as a dressing for wounds and burns, and has also been included in treatments against pityriasis, tinea, seborrhea, dandruff, diaper dermatitis, psoriasis. (2)

“To me this is quite something as I have psoriasis and need all the help I can get. I have found the Tea Tree Antiseptic Gel a huge help. Psoriasis itches and grows, I have found the Gel reduces it and helps stopping the itching. I can't praise it enough.” Jenny

Honey and Propolis are often used to heal burn wounds. They possess numerous functional properties such as: antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, disinfectant, antifungal and antiviral.(3)

Katie Piper, burns victim, best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity founder knows all too well about the healing benefits of Manuka honey.

“Manuka honey is another favourite; it’s used in burns units for dressings and I recently discovered Manuka Doctor skincare. I use their oils, creams and serums – it’s more of a treatment than a beauty product.” Katie Piper

Complementary and alternative medicines such as Tea tree (melaleuca) oil have become increasingly popular in recent decades. This essential oil has been used for almost 100 years. The primary uses of Tea tree oil have historically capitalized on the antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions of the oil, (4) making it the perfect ingredient to partner with Manuka hõney and Propolis in the Manuka Doctor Tea Tree Antiseptic Gel.

Of all the properties claimed for Tea tree, its antimicrobial activity has received the most attention. The earliest reported use of the M. alternifolia plant was the traditional use by the Bundjalung Aborigines of northern New South Wales. Crushed leaves of “tea trees” were inhaled to treat coughs and colds or were sprinkled on wounds. (5)
