The Power of Manuka Oil
Organic Manuka Oil has long been valued for its health properties, having been used for centuries by the Maori people of New Zealand. It was this natural wisdom that was passed to Captain Cook on his arrival in New Zealand in 1769 and then used by the early European settlers.
The healing properties of Manuka Oil aid the body in repair and rejuvenation while the antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties work by helping to keep the skin clean and clear of bacteria that can cause skin problems such as acne, spots and other blemishes.
The certified organic Manuka Oil in our Manuka Biotic® range provides an effective ingredient specifically used to promote better body health. It is a natural healing agent as well as having antibacterial properties and being an antioxidant. Combined with other natural ingredients specifically chosen to compliment the effectiveness of the Manuka Oil, our products will provide a range of health benefits to help keep your skin looking and feeling great.
How we sustainably produce Manuka Oil
Wild growing Manuka is sustainably harvested from organically certified Moewai Farm in New Zealand’s Coromandel Mountains.
Around 1 ton of Manuka leaf is cut during each harvest. We harvest around 2 – 3 days per week. We move around the property allowing each section to regrow naturally.
The Manuka foliage is then packed into large stainless steel bins that are then taken to the distillation unit. The foliage is compacted as much as possible as this gives a higher yield of oil.
The bins are then lowered into the distillation unit where it operates at 100 degrees C and steams the oil out of the leaves of the plant.
From 1 tonne of foliage we can produce between 2 to 3 litres of pure manuka oil. The oil is then separated, filtered and rested before being measured and bottled.
We take pride in every drop of organic manuka oil produced. All of our facilities are operated with care and maintained to ensure we are producing the best quality oil we can.
