Discover the Power of Methylglyoxal (MGO) in Manuka Honey

Discover the Power of Methylglyoxal (MGO) in Manuka Honey

Here at Blossom, we understand the frustration of trying countless creams, lotions, and medications to find relief for chronic skin conditions. That's why we want to introduce you to a natural wonder ingredient that could be the solution you've been searching for: methylglyoxal (MGO). We've harnessed the power of MGO-rich Manuka honey to develop our best-selling product, the Hydration Repair Honey Salve.

What is MGO in Manuka Honey?

Derived from the nectar of the Manuka bush native to Australia and New Zealand, Manuka honey contains significantly higher amounts of MGO compared to traditional polyfloral honey. MGO is the active ingredient responsible for Manuka honey's powerful antibacterial effect, with up to 100 times more potency. Combined with its antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, Manuka honey becomes a game-changer for those battling chronic skin conditions.

The Benefits of Using Manuka Honey

What is Manuka honey good for? Manuka honey is celebrated for its unique healing properties. Here are some key benefits:

  • Antibacterial properties: Helps fight infection and promotes wound healing.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects: Reduces inflammation and soothes irritated skin.
  • Antioxidant benefits: Protects the skin from free radicals and oxidative stress.
  • Hydration: Manuka honey's humectant nature draws moisture into the skin, providing long-lasting hydration.

That's why we've made it our mission to bring you the incredible benefits of Manuka honey without all the stickiness. Customers who have tried our Honey Salve have reported significant improvements in their cracked and dry skin, as well as more serious conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, and more. Our fast-acting formula is gentle on sensitive skin, and the lasting hydration is made possible by Manuka honey's unique ability to draw water from deep within the skin to the surface. 

Why is Manuka Honey So Expensive?

Manuka honey's price reflects its rarity and the meticulous process required to produce it. Here are a few reasons why it commands a premium price:

  • Limited supply: Manuka honey is only produced in certain regions of Australia and New Zealand.
  • Labor-intensive harvesting: The process of collecting and processing Manuka honey is more labor-intensive compared to regular honey.
  • High demand: Due to its numerous health benefits, there is a high global demand for Manuka honey.
  • Quality testing: Genuine Manuka honey undergoes rigorous testing to measure its MGO levels and ensure its purity and potency.

Our Commitment to Quality

Our Hydration Repair Honey Salve is a dermatologist-approved, cruelty-free product that is HRIPT third-party tested for sensitive skin. We've carefully crafted a unique formula that combines Manuka honey with other potent, natural ingredients such as aloe vera, calendula extract, coconut oil, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, beeswax, and tea tree oil. This blend provides a steroid-free solution for intensive skin repair, offering immediate relief and long-lasting hydration.

Our Honey Salve is suitable for children aged one and over, and it can be used to address various skin issues, including rashes, razor burns, bug bites, burns, dry and cracked skin, and chafing.
