What is the philosophy behind BeeBio Active 16+ Manuka Honey skincare products?
The 16+ Active Manuka Honey Seal on our skincare products represents the independently certified, biological activity that is only found in True Active 16+ Manuka Honey. This is a measure of the Non-Peroxide Activity (NPA) which is only found in True Active 16+ Manuka Honey. So, while some honeys have no more activity than sugar, the use of 16+ Active Manuka Honey in BeeBio products alongside natural botanicals synergistically work together to protect, moisturise and nourish the skin, while supporting skin cell regeneration and boosting the production of collagen and elastin. All this will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skin's natural barrier protection which will help to strengthen the skin.
