Comvita Creates Skincare Buzz

14 February 2008

Comvita Creates Skincare Buzz

Comvita has used its Manuka honey expertise to develop huni(r), a new, natural skincare range, which was launched nationally in Auckland yesterday.

The UMF(r) (Unique Manuka Factor) 20+ Manuka honey used in the huni skincare range was supplied by Comvita beekeepers in the North Island.

Comvita general manager skincare Leigh Kite says the aim is to offer women a natural skincare range that utilises the strong natural benefits of UMF(r) Manuka honey to minimise the first visible signs of aging.

UMF(r) is a scientific measure of the special properties found only in active Manuka honey. This type of honey was chosen for its exceptional moisturising, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

The natural ingredients used in huni are from sustainable sources and free from parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate detergents, artificial fragrances and genetically-modified plant materials.

The skincare formulation was a combination of New Zealand ingenuity and French skincare expertise, says Kite, with a French perfumer adding the unique huni fragrance.

New Zealand women can now buy huni from pharmacies and health food stores. huni is launching simultaneously in Australia and Hong Kong and will be on sale in the UK from March 2008.

Further huni products will be launched on the market throughout the year.

The huni range features nine products: Every Day Cleanser, Any Time Toning Mist, Every Day Moisturiser, Every Night Moisturiser, Every Day Whitening, All Day Body Lotion and Every Day Soap in Kowhai, Propolis and Royal Jelly variants.
