Kanuka honey has a wonderful anti-ageing ingredient called arabinogalactans (AGP’s); and Kanuka has the highest AGP content of any New Zealand honey (including Manuka honey), and is therefore superior to Manuka for skincare issues. AGP is important because it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, and has been knowen to help skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea.
The antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of kanuka come from high levels of hydrogen peroxide in the honey, a naturally occurring substance in honey, created by an enzyme called glucose oxidase.
Hydrogen peroxide, along with other compounds in kanuka, helps kill off bacteria, treat fungal infections, and reduce inflammation.
These properties make kanuka a valuable natural treatment for wounds, infection, and a number of skin conditions. Because it’s a natural substance, it tends to have fewer side effects compared to other treatment options such as antibiotics. It also provides a natural barrier to prevent re-infection of wounds.
