" Meet the new Manuka Honey brand that belongs in Every Pantry." - Vogue
Not all honey is created equal.
Manuka is a very rare type of honey that only comes from New Zealand. Activist Raw Mānuka Honey is wildcrafted in Aotearoa, and is certified and tested in New Zealand. It is RAW which is one of the key elements that sets it apart. Most of the Mānuka on the shelves is either blended, creamed or heated and because of this, loses a lot of anti-bacterial and health benefits through the process of dilution. Activist Manuka is raw and unprocessed, therefore retaining all the natural properties.
Activist is independently tested and certified in New Zealand. It is graded using the Methylglyoxal (MGO) grading system, which verifies that the Mānuka honey you are buying is authentic. The MGO rating is well recognized as a mark of real Mānuka honey; the higher the MGO rating in Mānuka honey, the higher the level of antibacterial activity, The MGO Certification is scientific, precise, and transparent and leaves no room for misleading. Products claiming to be Mānuka honey but not showing an MGO or UMF rating are unlikely to be genuine.
Mānuka is the quintessential antidote to almost any skin issue. This is because the methylglyoxal found in Mānuka Honey has been found to promote skin regeneration, repair cellular damage, calm inflammation and get rid of bacteria. In addition, due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Mānuka has extraordinary healing properties for skin conditions. It can reduce redness and heal congested or inflamed skin such as eczema or psoriasis. Additionally, Mānuka can be used for its anti-bacterial properties on the skin by oxygenating pores, which can draw out or reduce the amount of bacteria on blemishes. This can drastically improve acne-prone skin. Mānuka truly is magical at repairing skin damage and health.
We love that harvesting sustainability is at the forefront of the Activist brand. Their hives are located in unique, pristine and isolated regions of New Zealand, which is great for the bee’s health as these locations are free of GMOs and urban toxins. It is also crucial that they do not overpopulate these locations with too many hives. They keep their hives at lower numbers in these dense locations and this encourage's the bees to flourish and pollinate for ethical harvesting and productivity; but most importantly bee health.
You can incorporate Activist Mānuka as part of your daily ritual to nourish your everyday health and well-being, and enjoy its potent health benefits and immune system support, as well as a natural and nourishing addition to your skincare regime.
Activist honey is produced in small batches.
