The base of all Living Nature face and body products is
manuka honey, from New Zealand. Manuka oil is believed to be a powerful healing agent, and
twenty times stronger than Australian tea tree oil for
antibacterial and antiseptic purposes.
Living Nature products
are all natural and use a unique preservative system composed
of New Zealand plant extracts and pure vitamin E extracted
from soy and wheat. The extracts are bactericides and
fungicides, and the vitamin E is an antioxidant, which stops
the oils from going rancid.
The products do not contain petrochemicals, and all raw
materials are verified to be free of radiation. manuka honey is so healing that a dab of
it, applied to a blemish or sore at bedtime, will dramatically
reduce or even heal the problem by morning.
Manuka Cleansing Shower Gel ($15.75 for 8.5oz) contains high
amounts of manuka honey, vitamins A, C and E and kelp (a
seaweed high in iodine), making it an excellent treatment for
eczema, chronic dryness, and psoriasis. Its manuka honey scent
has invigorating accents of peppermint, lavender and cedar. It
does not contain sodium laurel sulfate.
Manuka Honey Hand & Body
Cream ($15.75 for 8.5oz) is also effective for skin
ailments; it super-hydrates and soothes the skin, leaving it
soft and silky. The cream includes pecan oil, manuka honey,

passed this along to a friend with severe eczema and he was
amazed at how much it relieved his condition the first time he
used it. Two weeks later, he is still singing its praises.
