Thanks to its remarkable health benefits, honey is no stranger to the world of wellbeing. And now this natural superfood is being used in skincare too. The Wild Ferns range contains distinctive ingredients from New Zealand’s unique landscape.
Wild Ferns has searched New Zealand for the most efficacious ingredients, and superstar manuka honey is just one of the powerful natural elements you’ll find in their skin care. The nutrient-rich honey from the flowering manuka tea tree, which is native to New Zealand, is often touted as the queen of all honey. Manuka honey is prized internationally for its exceptional antibacterial properties; enzymes within honey produce hydrogen peroxide, which gives honey antiseptic and antibacterial characteristics. Unlike other varieties, manuka honey contains higher quantities of methylglyoxal, which scientists believe give it greater antibacterial power.
THE WILD FERNS RANGE
With over 30 years of experience, Wild Ferns hasn’t needed to search the world for ingredients. Unlike other brands, the family business has harnessed the potent restorative properties of New Zealand’s finest manuka honey to create a range of skin care suitable for various skin types. Because manuka honey is antioxidant rich and has unique antibacterial properties, the Wild Ferns Manuka Honey collection calms inflammation while restoring vitality and radiance to skin. Rich antioxidants work to neutralise harmful free radicals that lead to skin damage and the signs of ageing, leaving complexions nourished, and sensitive and irritable skin soothed.
Try starting the day and your skincare routine with Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Gentle Facial Cleanser ($21.40). The nutrient‑packed crème cleanser provides skin with a deep cleanse, whisking away debris and make-up without striping skin of vital natural oils. Along with calming, antioxidant-rich manuka honey, the formulation includes calendula oil, which soothes and softens; juniper essential oil to gently remove impurities; and nourishing avocado oil, which leaves skin soft and hydrated.
As well as impressive antibacterial properties, honey is also a natural humectant. Follow your cleansing routine with Wild Ferns Manuka Honey Replenishing Day Creme ($22.70). Manuka honey’s humectant properties will lock moisture into your complexion while providing skin with rich hydration throughout the day.
