Active Manuka Honey Anhydrous Cream 25% (AMH 25%)
A useful application for damaged or irritated skin.
Honey has an established reputation as an antibacterialÃÂ agent. AMH 25% has been formulated to utilise all the known benefits of ACTIVE Manuka Honey when used for topical application in an easy to administer, stay-in-place form. It contains 25% of 16+ UMF (unique manuka factor). Active Manuka Honey contains the unique compound methylglyoxal, that provides a special natural antibacterialÃÂ function able to inhibit many infectious bacteria. The antibacterialÃÂ activity of honey works in 3 ways and AMH 25% includes the unusual non-perioxide antibioticÃÂ substance(s) present in some New Zealand Manuka Honey. This non-peroxide activityÃÂ has an antibacterialÃÂ quality, of benefit in topical form, which appears to controlÃÂ the bacterial invasion of damaged skin.
ACTIVE MANUKA HONEY wound protective qualities are achieved by:
- ACTIVITY FACTOR (UMF): The main advantage is from the unique NON-PEROXIDE ANTIBACTERIAL effect that is determined through tests formulated by Waikato University Honey Research Unit, NZ as stated by a plus (+) number. Optimal antibacterial activity is achieved if the Active Manuka Honey is 15+ and above.
- PEROXIDE EFFECT (H2O2): Peroxide is released from the honey when fluid/aqueous material contacts the cream (serum from damaged areas), provides a cleansing action.
- POULTICE ACTION: Honey is a Ã¢â¬Ësuper sugarÃ¢â¬â¢ solution so when applied to damaged skin it draws moisture from the area in an osmotic way so working as a gentle poultice.
Apply AMH 25% Cream directly onto the area requiring care, normally no dressing is required to hold the cream in place. ÃÂ Apply daily or more frequently if rubbed or licked off. AMH 25% forms a waterproof film over the damaged skin.ÃÂ For skin areas with minor damage, repeated cover applications of AMH 25% Cream will protect and soothe the skin. Apply onto a dressing or covering the area with a dressing may be required if likely to be rubbed or licked off.
