We believe in the concept of cellular beauty. This refers to ingesting internal health products rather than just focusing on external skincare. Skincare is no longer just topical, but it is what we put into our bodies.
We have been sold that what you put on your skin reflects how you age and glow. However, as more modern studies have been released, they have found that by nourishing the mechanisms within the body that support optimal cellular function, you can help promote healthy aging and overall good skin quality. This ingestible beauty technique can help increase collagen protection, fight free radicals, and support our skin from the cellular level and out.
So why focus on cellular beauty? Well, ideally, our cells would naturally replicate and work together synergistically. However, our modern toxic world has prevented many of our cellular mechanisms from communicating and collaborating properly. This has damaged our bodies, prevented healthy aging and caused mass amounts of inflammation and disease. This can come from high-stress lifestyles, water and air pollution, processed foods, toxic chemicals in cleaning and personal care products, and excessive use of prescription drugs. And most of this gets absorbed into our liver, causing skin and digestive issues for a start!
This is why we need versatile health-giving products that will help both our internal and external health simultaneously. And luckily, we found this concept of cellular beauty to directly correlate with our mission for spreading Mānuka honey, one of nature's multifunctional healing treasures.

Mānuka, the True Cellular Beautician
If cellular beauty refers to internal health reflecting externally, then Mānuka does just this. Mānuka is highly anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, and can be absorbed on top of the skin or swallowed for its health benefits. It is amazing for digestive, immune and oral health, burns and wounds, and almost any skin condition. It is completely adaptable for internal and external health, using its powers to slow down or reverse aging and soak directly into your cells.
Mānuka is especially wonderful for supporting the natural digestive microbiome, preventing and healing inflammation. It uses its anti-bacterial properties to rid the gut of pathogens, allowing for the liver and lymphatic system to shine through your skin. This is because it contains oligosaccharides, which have a prebiotic effect on the gut and promote the proliferation of good flora. In addition, the methylglyoxal found in Mānuka Honey has been shown to increase and protect the production of collagen in the skin, promoting structural growth and regrowth. Mānuka’s amino acids harmonize pH balance of our skin, helping us age gracefully. It is also extremely hydrating for the skin, helping to retain moisture, which is an important part of preventing and reducing wrinkles. Mānuka can be taken internally or externally for this reason.
