But we want to get you caught up to speed with the vast benefits of mānuka essential oil, the world’s most powerful anti-bacterial essential oil, and how it can revolutionise your skincare routine.
We Know, Skincare Can Be Confusing...
All across the world people are returning to more natural ways of handling skincare issues because of how effective they can be, without the often harsh side effects of over-the-counter synthetic treatments.
There is a feeling of a collective “AHA” moment reverberating across the planet when the benefits of introducing these natural ways of treating our skin are seen and felt. Yet, it can be hard to figure out which essential oils can help with what, leaving you with just as many “solutions” as before crowding your cabinet hoping one will work. Until now.
Mānuka essential oil is so powerful that it has the ability to help treat a wide-range of skin issues. And when it can’t, it’s synergistic properties allow for the creation of essential oil blends that uplift those ingredients to work better in tandem for you.
Let’s jump in and explore what benefits of mānuka essential oil can check off items on your list of skincare challenges.
The Best Anti-bacterial Essential Oil
Mānuka essential oil is the world’s most powerful antibacterial essential oil when compared to Australian tea tree oil, one of the most popular essential oils around the world. We aren’t trying to downplay how great tea tree oil can be, it’s one of the best. But East Cape mānuka essential oil has powerful β‐triketones that unlock unmatched antibacterial superpowers and make it over 30x more effective than tea tree oil at killing bad skin bacteria.
This makes it a must-have for holistically keeping your skin at peak health and defending it against even the worst antimicrobial-resistant strains of skin bacteria like staphylococcus aureus and others. Mānuka oil can help treat cuts and scrapes, infections, fungal issues like athlete’s foot, and is a gentle yet effective natural hand sanitiser and cleaner.
Amazing Anti-Aging and Antioxidant Essential Oil
The protective properties of mānuka essential oil and its amazing antioxidant abilities make it an obvious choice for your anti-aging regimen. The antioxidants and anti-bacterial traits of mānuka oil kill off free-radicals that can harm your skin, cause collagen production to be hindered, and skin repair to come to a screeching halt. It defends it against potentially permanent damage to skin from infections while promoting healthier skin for the long run.
It doesn’t stop there! Mānuka essential oil is synergistic, meaning when it works in tandem with other ingredients while boosting their own effectiveness. For instance, when combined with other amazing anti-aging ingredients like rosehip essential oil, you get a collagen-boosting duo that’ll help turn the clock back on aging skin and keep you looking younger, longer.
Great Natural Acne and Blemish Treatment
Looking for what natural essential oils help with acne or blemishes? Look no further. Because of the incredible anti-bacterial abilities of mānuka essential oil, it can help conquer even the most severe cases of acne by fighting the source of many acne issues -- bacteria.
It works by killing off acne-causing skin bacterias and fortifying skin against others, all the while leaving the good skin bacteria intact. Think of it this way: instead of lighting the fortress (you) on fire to kill off the invaders like most acne treatments, which of course weakens the overall defenses, mānuka oil strengthens the walls (your skin) and defeats the invaders without damaging the defenses.
What about sensitive skin? Worry not. Mānuka oil has no known allergies and is extra gentle on the skin when mixed with carrier oils or when diluted.
Marvelous Essential Oil for Moisturising Skin
Let’s face it, moisturisers are frustrating. Some might soften skin or hydrate it, yet it suffocates the pores and traps in dirt or grime. These all lead to new skin issues that arise. Mānuka essential oil is phenomenal to use with dry or damaged skin, creating a protective layer that locks in moisture to hydrate, while remaining breathable to reduce inflammation and the chances of clogged pores.
Mānuka oil also promotes white blood cell production to speed up skin recovery and keep your body’s skin healing abilities humming along for longer -- adding up to an overall stronger, more youthful skin and complexion. This is also why we’ve used this hero ingredient in our day and night cream to create a scientifically formulated moisturiser that will keep your skin looking lush and hydrated without the greasy and oily feel.
