We love the nourishing and antibacterial properties of our indigenous Mānuka and were enthralled by the discovery that Mānuka company Melora has launched a Honey & Oil edit of beauty and skincare products. Each product can be traced back to the very hive from which its Mānuka originated.
From haircare to toothpaste and even a blemish stick, the range uses both Mānuka honey and oil to work in harmony, the result being a pure and simple solution to self-care. Free from parabens, artificial perfumes, synthetic colours and mineral oil, the edit ticks all our boxes.
Melora is committed to the sustainable supply of Mānuka and works to benefit its remote and coastal communities through a transparent income model. Accordingly, a percentage of profits are returned to the landowners who guard, protect, and nurture their treasured Mānuka plants.
So far, reviews of the Honey & Oil range are glowing. One user says “This hand wash cleanses the skin without drying out your hands which at the moment is a must since we are washing our hands so often.” Another says about the moisturiser “this is a great moisturiser for anyone with breakouts because it’s packed with antibacterial properties but is still very moisturising – there’s no artificial scent so it shouldn’t inflame your skin if it’s sensitive.”
The Melora Mānuka Honey & Oil Double Action personal care range is available to buy online at melora.co.nz and in selected pharmacies nationwide.
