Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream as the name would suggest uses this fascinating honey as one of its core ingredients.
What is so special about this honey? The answer to this is that Manuka honey has many properties that are beneficial to the skin and also some very unique properties.
Manuka honey is an antibacterial superfood, and scientists have discovered that the honey contains a compound unique to it called methylglyoxal (MGO), and it is this compound that makes Manuka honey so unique.
Furthermore this most unusual of honeys can be analysed to ensure it is a genuine monofloral honey and contains these natural compounds and their concentration.
Antipodes gets its honey from Watson & Son, a long-established brand in the world of Manuka honey with some 45,000 hives located in remote regions of New Zealand’s North Island.
Watson & Son carry out the testing of the honey in their own accredited laboratory.
Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream is for use around the eyes and takes advantage of the natural moisturizing and anti-blemish properties of the honey.
The cream also has other antioxidant properties in the form of Vinanza grape and kiwi, which brighten the skin and improve its appearance.
This cream is also certified by the UK Vegetarian Society as a vegetarian product and comes in recyclable and biodegradable packaging.
