Manuka Honey is a natural active ingredient created from the nectar of the Manuka flower. Lasting only six weeks, the small fragrant flowers have to be harvested by worker bees in a far shorter amount of time than usual. The Manuka honey, known for its protecting and wound-healing qualities, is vital for the skin’s metabolism and renewal processes.

L’Oréal Paris’ will showcase New Zealand’s very own Manuka Honey as the main ingredient in its new Age Perfect Intense Nutrition range. The new line of beauty products was formulated to repair and restore mature aged skin.
