Uses: Helps eliminate germs on hands.

Active Manuka Honey is used as a natural, therapeutic agent, both internally and topically on the skin. Apitherapy, the name given to treatment with honey and other bee products, has been used by many different cultures throughout history. Such uses are now being rediscovered by a modern world in light of new research into the properties and uses of Manuka Honey.

Manuka Honey has enjoyed growing acceptance by the academic and medical world as of late, and reports of Manuka honey's unique healing properties have proliferated in the press and media. Manuka Honey is produced by bees that gather pollen from the flowers of the Manuka tree, which is indigenous to New Zealand. The honey making process is enriched by the pollution-free environment of New Zealand. This special type of medical grade honey has been found to have extremely powerful healing properties. It is only thanks to clinical research, predominantly in the last decade, that they are now able to explain many of the therapeutic effects of Manuka Honey when used for medical purposes.

Why Honey?
Honey has been known for its healing properties for thousands of years. The Ancient Greeks and Egyptians used it and so have many other cultures through the ages. Even up to the second world war, honey was being used for its antibacterial properties in treating wounds. With the advent of penicillin and other antibiotic drugs in the twentieth century, doctors and other medical professionals were under the misconception that medicine was more effective than honey. However, recent case studies have indicated that certain types of honey (such as Active Manuka Honey) have been more effective in treating certain ailments, even more so than antibiotics. In all kinds of honey, hydrogen peroxide is produced from an enzyme that bees add to the nectar. It has been discovered that Manuka Honey seems to have the most healing properties due to plant-derived components.

Active Manuka Honey
Active Manuka Honey has been considered a remedy for many health conditions since ancient times. Manuka Honey is unique to New Zealand and contains non-peroxide antibacterial agents which can inhibit the growth of bacteria that cause slow healing wounds.

Medical Research
Dr Peter Molan, Associate Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Waikato, has proven the natural antibacterial properties of Active Manuka honey during a decade of research at the university's Honey Research Unit.

In laboratory tests, UMF Active Manuka Honey inhibited the growth of bacteria which causes many skin infections including antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria such as MRSA and VRE. Recent clinical trials at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, showed skin infections and wounds infected by "Golden staph" and other antibiotic-resistant bacteria responded well to Active Manuka Honey dressings.

The leading authority on medical research on UMF rated Manuka Honey is the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand. The director of the unit is Dr. Peter Molan, who has devoted the majority of his career to understanding the properties of Manuka Honey and its varied applications.

Unique Characteristics of Manuka Honey

  • Only Manuka Honey provides non-hydrogen peroxide antibacterial components.
  • Manuka Honey's antibacterial factor is unaffected by enzymes in the body that destroy hydrogen peroxide components.
  • Manuka Honey is highly effective against antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.
  • Manuka Honey maintains its potency even when diluted over 50 times as will happen when used on the body.
  • Manuka Honey is unaffected by heat, light or aging.
  • Manuka Honey does not require moisture or oxygen to be effective.
  • Manuka Honey diffuses deep into skin tissue, making it possible to get to effected areas.
Manuka Honey has an antibacterial activity due primarily to hydrogen peroxide formed in a "slow-release" manner by the enzyme glucose oxidase. Manuka Honey can be diluted more than 100-fold and still halt the growth of bacteria. It contains an additional antibacterial component found only in honey produced from Leptospermum plants which has been called the Unique Manuka Factor or UMFΓäó. There is evidence that the two antibacterial components have a synergistic action.

Please note that due to FDA regulations, they are restricted as to what they can claim about honey's medical uses. Because Manuka Honey is a purely natural product, rather than an FDA recognized drug, medical claims are limited. However, they are permitted to include links in our website to external third-party sources of information on the benefits and research of Manuka Honey's medical use.

About Honeymark
Honeymark is an importer of Manuka honey and a distributor of natural Manuka honey products. They at Honeymark believe that Manuka Honey is an untapped resource that, once more recognized, will become widely accepted and regularly used.

Their plans are to significantly increase their line of Manuka honey-based products in the future as well as develop relationships with distributors to allow our products to be purchased at various retail locations in addition to our online store. Honeymark will continue to be dedicated to improving the lives of our customers by producing the most innovative, highest quality Manuka honey products possible.
Since Honeymark is based in the United States, shipping is easier, faster and less expensive than ordering Manuka honey directly from New Zealand. In addition, Honeymark products are manufactured using earth-friendly standards.  Sustainable practices are a priority in every aspect of their operation.  They also strive to maximize recycled content and recyclability of their packaging.

All Honeymark products are:


  • Made with active, medical-grade, certified UMF Manuka Honey from New Zealand
  • Paraben Free
  • Produced using all-natural ingredients
  • Free of artificial coloring
  • Free of synthetic fragrances
  • Free of genetically modified organisms
  • Free of mineral oils
  • Free of artificial preservatives
  • Cruelty free - no animal testing or animal ingredients

Why use their products?
The main reason is because they really work.  Product efficacy is extremely important to us and, above all, they want their customers to recognize the quality that goes into their formulations.  The term "Natural" is one of the most misused and misinterpreted words in their industry.  When they say that they use natural ingredients, they mean that they are produced by living organisms, such as plants.  They use these ingredients because they are safe, healthy and have phytochemical and biological activity that provides medicinal value to their products.

Other manufacturers use synthetic or chemical-based ingredients because they are less expensive than plant-derived, botanical ingredients.  This helps to improve their profit margins.  They have a different philosophy.  They believe that if they produce high-quality products that actually work really well and are good for you, more people will want to use them.  This seems like a simple concept but there are still millions of people who use products every day that contain toxic and questionably unsafe ingredients.


What is Honey?
Honey is a saturated solution of sugar made by bees that collect nectar, which is a liquid secretion from flowers. The honeybees take this nectar back to their hives where they add enzymes to it and place it in wax cells called honeycombs. This is where it ripens to form honey. During the ripening process, the enzymes convert sucrose into glucose and fructose. Honey has been used for medical purposes for many years. However, with the advent of antibiotics, medical professionals were under the misconception that modern medicine was more effective than honey. New research is proving otherwise.

What type of honey is in Honeymark products?
Honeymark uses active, certified UMF Manuka honey in all its products. This is a medical-grade honey that has been proven to be effective in treating many types of health conditions. Even though Honeymark is a U.S. company, the Manuka Honey is imported from New Zealand.

What is Manuka Honey?
Manuka Honey is a special type of mono-floral honey which is produced by bees that gather nectar from the flowers that grow on the Manuka bush (also known as tea tree or Leptospermum scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. Studies have found that Manuka Honey contains very powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties, making it extremely effective in treating a wide variety of health conditions.

How does Manuka Honey work?
All types of honey contain hydrogen peroxide which is produced when the bees add an enzyme to the nectar. Hydrogen peroxide is produced in a slow-release manner that is strong enough to be effective in destroying bacteria but low enough not to harm tissue. Manuka Honey is different in that it also contains plant-derived components, such as methylglyoxal and what some experts refer to as the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF).

What is UMF?
UMF is an acronym for 'Unique Manuka Factor' and is an antibacterial property which is present in Active Manuka Honey. UMF is a floral property that comes from the nectar of Manuka flowers and has been found to posses extraordinary healing powers. This antibacterial activity is not present in any other type of honey.

Manuka Honey is tested and rated for its antibacterial potency. It is generally accepted that Manuka Honey with a UMF rating of 10 or higher is appropriate for medical use. The higher the UMF rating, the higher the antibacterial activity.

UMF is a measuring system that rates the antibacterial potency of Manuka Honey. The UMF is determined by comparing the antibacterial activity of a given honey with the antibacterial activity of antiseptic phenol (carbolic) using a standard lab test. For example, a UMF rating of 10 is equivalent to the potency of a 10% solution of phenol.

The term "UMF" is a registered trademark of the Active Manuka Honey Association in New Zealand.

What's the Difference between UMF 10 and UMF 16?
It may be easy to assume that Manuka Honey with a higher potency rating is more effective or that it works faster. However, this isn't necessary true. The fact is that UMF 10 and UMF 16 are both active, medical-grade honeys and both will yield the same medicinal results that people have come to expect of Manuka honey. It's true that UMF 16 is more potent than UMF 10. However, UMF 10 still has all of the same health benefits as UMF 16. In our own laboratory studies, we have destroyed the MRSA bacterium with Manuka Honey UMF 10 and that is the most resilient bacteria known to man. UMF 10 is more abundant and more readily available than UMF 16 which is why it's less expensive. Before you consider spending the extra money for the UMF 16, please know that the UMF 10 is appropriate for medicinal use and equally as effective as the UMF 16.

How is Manuka Honey different from regular honey?
Standard honey has been used in the past to heal wounds, primarily due to the fact that it keeps the wound moist and nurtures the growth of new tissue with important vitamins and amino acids. Honey also contains hydrogen peroxide which is a known antiseptic. Therefore, regular honey could theoretically be effective in treating wounds. However, standard honey looses most of its healing properties when it comes in contact with wound fluids. Another problem is that honey has high sugar content which can actually promote the growth of bacteria. Only Active Manuka Honey has additional antibacterial properties that have the ability to destroy the bacteria that are responsible for infecting wounds. Manuka Honey is also stable so there is no concern of it losing its potency or healing properties.

There are a few major differences between ordinary honey and Manuka Honey.

  1. Only Manuka Honey provides non-hydrogen peroxide antibacterial components.
  2. Manuka Honey's antibacterial factor is unaffected by enzymes in the body that destroy hydrogen peroxide components.
  3. Manuka Honey is highly effective against antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.
  4. Manuka Honey maintains its potency even when diluted over 50 times, as will happen when used on the body.
  5. Manuka Honey is unaffected by heat or light.
  6. Manuka Honey does not require moisture or oxygen to be effective.
  7. Manuka Honey diffuses deep into skin tissue, making it possible to get to effected areas.

The antimicrobial activity of Manuka Honey has been observed in many studies around the world. It has been discovered that Manuka Honey is effective in destroying the following bacterial and fungal microorganisms:

  • Escherichia coli (E. coli)
  • Staphylococcus aureus (Staph infections)
  • Citrobacter freundii
  • Proteus mirabilis
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Salmonella typhimurium
  • Streptococcus faecalis
  • Streptococcus pyogenes
  • Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori, stomach ulcers)
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  • Vanocomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE)

Research also indicates that Manuka Honey inhibits enzymes called cysteine proteases, which have been implicated in muscle-wasting diseases such as muscular dystrophy, viral replication, tumor invasion and metastasis.

If UMF Manuka Honey is considered to have active healing properties, why is it listed in the inactive ingredients list on the Honeymark website and labels?
Even though Manuka Honey has medicinal value and is effective in treating a wide variety of different health conditions, honey is not yet considered to be an FDA recognized drug. Therefore, Honeymark is limited in terms of marketing Manuka Honey as a medicine or an active ingredient within the United States. Ministries of Health and other foreign FDA equivalents in other countries have already approved Manuka Honey as a medicine. Hopefully the U.S. will catch up soon.

Can Manuka Honey destroy MRSA and heal Staph infections?
There is documented evidence indicating that Manuka Honey is capable of destroying the MRSA bacterium. Bacteria has the ability to mutate and become resistant to elements that are attempting to destroy them, such as antibiotics. However, Manuka Honey destroys bacteria in a different manner, by drawing water out of the bacteria, making it impossible for the microbes to survive. To date, there has been no reported bacteria that has been able to develop a resistance to Manuka Honey.

What is Methylglyoxal?
Some scientists have reason to believe that Methylglyoxal may be one of the compounds responsible for the antibacterial action in Manuka honey. However, others believe that the Methylglyoxal level in Manuka Honey does not account for the antibacterial activity. The antibacterial activity of Manuka Honey is due to synergy between Methylglyoxal and non-antibacterial components. This synergy accounts for half or more of the UMF activity.

The antibacterial activity of Methylglyoxal is far less when it is in water than when it is in honey. It has less than half of the antibacterial activity that is seen when the same level is in Manuka Honey. This is scientific proof that the Methylglyoxal present in Manuka Honey does not account for the non-peroxide (UMF) antibacterial activity of Manuka Honey by itself . Increased levels of Methylglyoxal only add to the base level of activity, which is why the antibacterial activity of the honey does not increase in proportion to the level of Methylglyoxal .

Can Manuka Honey be used to treat wounds or burns?
Manuka Honey is one of the best treatments available for wounds and burns because it provides a moist, sterile environment for the regeneration of tissue. It also makes a soft barrier between the wound and bandages, preventing new tissue from being torn away when the dressing is changed. Manuka Honey is capable of destroying the bacteria the cause infection in wounds. It is especially useful in treating persistent, hard-to-heal wounds such as leg ulcers, bed sores and 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree burns that don't respond to conventional treatments, antibiotics or other traditional forms of medication.

What are the special skin care characteristics of Manuka honey?
Manuka Honey is a natural skin moisturizer that has the ability to draw water molecules into the skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that act as a natural pain reliever, an antibacterial agent that can heal infections and antifungal properties that can eliminate ringworm and other fungal infections.

Can children safely use Honeymark products?
While medical professionals recommend that children less than 12 months old should not ingest honey of any kind, there is no harm in infants using honey topically on the skin. It is also perfectly safe to ingest honey if you are pregnant.

Are Honeymark products animal friendly and cruelty free?
Honeymark products are not tested on animals.
