Honey For Your Lips!

Living Nature’s Manuka Honey Lip Balm

This summer, why not ditch your usual cream, balm or gloss for your lips and go natural, try Living Nature’s certified natural Manuka Honey Lip Balm (rrp NZ$17.50 for 10ml or free when spending NZ$39 or more on the Living Nature website during January 2014) - honey for your lips sourced from right on Living Nature’s doorstep in Kerikeri, New Zealand. Honey, one of nature’s wonders, might be the subject of old wives tales but for very good reason! Used by our forefathers for its amazing healing abilities, today the natural powers of honey are backed by scientific research. From the royals to celebs, actresses to models, it seems everyone is discovering the nutrient-rich properties of this amber nectar for skin health and beauty.

Honey provides a lovely luxurious quality when added to skin care creams and lotions and delivers vital nourishment and hydration in a way that’s gentle and kind to our skin.

Living Nature’s Lip Balm is packed full of the natural goodness of New Zealand Active Manuka Honey, a Living Nature hero ingredient and used by the Maori for centuries for its curative benefits. Created by bees from the nectar of Manuka flowers, Active Manuka Honey is highly nutritious and also possesses a natural antimicrobial power that is unique and highly potent, yet remarkably gentle and kind to our skin. The beauty of Living Nature’s Manuka Honey is that it comes from local suppliers and is wild crafted using traditional beekeeping methods. When released from the frames the Manuka Honey is filtered and each batch laboratory tested to confirm it is predominantly from a Manuka source and has a good active content.

As well as possessing potent antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that stimulate the body’s natural repair processes, Active Manuka Honey acts as a natural humectant, helping to seal-in moisture to prevent dehydration. This makes Living Nature’s Lip Balm highly effective at keeping lips soft, supple and smooth as well as gently aiding rapid recovery, and preventing inflammation or infection if lips are sore or cracked skin. Active Manuka Honey also possesses natural antiviral properties that are known to help fight the herpes simplex virus that causes cold sores.

Living Nature’s Lip Balm also includes Cupuacu Butter for its natural ability to improve the skin barrier, which in turn helps increase the moisture levels on your lips and helps restore the skin’s elasticity and softness. It also provides lips with important, natural UVA/UVB protection. Antioxidant-rich Pequi Fruit Extract delivers powerful anti-ageing benefits that aid repair of cracked skin and help protect against further damage, whilst Ginger Extract, rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant properties, further enhances the soothing, healing nature of Living Nature’s certified natural Lip Balm.

What makes Living Nature’s Manuka Honey Lip Balm so extra-special though is that it is so pure and natural it’s even safe enough to eat! That’s welcome news for those of us who are concerned about the ingredients we might be accidentally ingesting from lip products. With Living Nature’s Lip Balm you can rest assured it contains only certified natural preservatives, fragrance and ingredients and is certified natural by BDIH Germany. It has a delightful mild honey flavour and is a real pleasure to use, gliding on effortlessly with a silky-smooth texture, providing a light gloss finish and long-lasting coverage. You can even apply it over your lipstick for a lovely gloss finish. So go on, pop Living Nature’s Lip Balm in your pocket this summer and use all the natural goodness of Manuka Honey to keep your lips naturally nourished, hydrated and protected all summer long.
