I became acquainted with Manuka and its benefits in 1999 while searching for unique
ingredients for a new line of products under development.  As I  read about the benefits of
Manuka, I became intrigued with this "Super" product.  I had suffered for years with chronic
strep infections. After reading the testimonials and research papers, I wanted to discover if
the testimonials, research, statements, etc. were fact or fiction.  The first jar was ordered
and the rest is history. After all these years, I continue to use Manuka on many ailments
to
prove Manuka wrong
.  With each use, I become a stronger believer in the powers
of Active Manuka Honey and Manuka Essential Oil
.  Through my testimonials, I have
shared the benefits of its powers with many people.  Those people have become
believers...  and those people have shared their stories with others.  I invite you to read my
testimonial and others.

Pictorial Progression of Burn on Foot and usage of Manuka Honey

Our skin care products became a result of "once again trying to prove Manuka wrong". We
appreciated what Manuka honey did internally.  We wanted to discover if Active Manuka
Honey had the same benefits topically.  The 1st guinea pig was "Mom Russell" who has
dealt with the affects of Lupus since 1984.  She was amazed at the positive results she
experienced with each skin care formulation!  Our body lotion has become a favorite for
those who have been sunburned.  People in medical settings (hospitals, nursing homes,
etc) claim their skin is in better condition when they leave than when they enter that
environment.  People working with their hands use the creams at the end of the day to
renew and undo the damage that occurred during the day.   Diabetics have become fans
due to the intense moisturizing benefits of the foot creams, hand creams, lotions,...  The
applications and uses of Manuka continue...  

Manuka Body Essentialstm Skin and Body Care and once again... Smooth Skintm
Diabetic Skin Care
have become product lines that everyone in the company is excited to
share with others.  We have learned through the years not only were the internal and
topical benefits proven to be correct - we were able to confirm through our experience and
others...  Active Manuka Honey is truly a Gift from Nature. We look forward to having you
experience the benefits of Active Manuka Honey and Manuka Essential Oil in our wide
range of products.  We know you will become as big of a fan of Manuka as we are!
