Natural antimicrobial skincare needed now more than ever

By developing skincare that works naturally to keep skin clean, we help our customers
maintain the health and beauty of their skin while joining together in the fight against
antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Recent findings have confirmed the value of essential oils in
the development of skincare products with antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties.
Unlike antibiotics and other antimicrobial products, these essential oils do not contribute to
AMR. For example, bioactive rich mānuka leaf oil from the East Cape region of New Zealand
is useful in the treatment of acne, bacterial infections such as impetigo (school sores), cuts,
wounds  and ulcers, fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and ringworm, viral infections
such as cold sores and more.
