Mānuka posesses a considerably higher level of enzymes than regular honey, due to a substance called methylglyoxal (MGO), Mānuka can promote skin regeneration, repair cellular damage, calm inflammation and get rid of bacteria. It has also been shown to increase and protect the production of collagen in the skin, promoting structural growth and regrowth.

Activist Mānuka sources raw wildcrafted Mānuka honey from Aotearoa, New Zealand. Hand crafted in small batches, adhering to the seasons- this completely unadulterated resource from nature is our go-to for skincare, wellbeing and culinary use. Discover how Activist Mānuka can help you:

Acne, Eczema and Dermatitis

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. You can use Mānuka Honey as an everyday face wash, direct spot treatment on acne, or as a face mask to leave on for any set amount of time.

Skin Repair

Living in an environmentally polluted world, we are subjected to toxins everywhere we go. It is almost impossible to avoid absorbing them through our skin. This is why we must take extra care to protect and restore our precious barrier. Mānuka is magical at repairing skin damage- promoting skin regeneration and repairing cellular breakdown. Mānuka can also support scar fading, with trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide.

"I have been using ACTIVIST Mānuka 850+ MGO for face masks the past two weeks for my skin and I could cry from happiness. I have been struggling with acne and I’ve tried everything. After using this honey, my skin is so much more even, no redness. And no breakouts. This is magic. I am so thankful; thank you for making a beautiful company.” — Customer, Taylr Anne


Studies suggest that the methylglyoxal found in Mānuka Honey can increase and protect the production of collagen in the skin, promoting structural growth and regrowth. Mānuka’s amino acids harmonize perfectly the pH balance of our skin, supporting skin vitality and function. A natural humectant honey is also extremely hydrating, helping to retain moisture in skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

"When I was 28 years old, rosacea developed on my face - mostly on my cheeks and nose. I prefer to use natural remedies wherever possible but eventually needing to consult a dermatologist. Around the same time, I started using Activist’s 850+ MGO on the affected areas and it ended up having almost the same effect as the prescription. Once the medication runs out, my plan is to just continue to use the Mānuka twice a day for 20 minutes. I really like how pure it is, just honey, the most ancient of things."- Customer, Ian H

Burns and Wounds

As mentioned before, the methylglyoxal enzymes within the honey create a natural hydrogen peroxide that works as an antibacterial. Mānuka can soothe inflammation and discomfort, and naturally dress a wound or burn, while speeding up the healing process.

We recommended externally using Mānuka in whatever way you need! You can use it as a daily face wash, lather on as a mask, or even simply spot treat certain areas or wounds as and when needed.
