Today I like to talk a little about the Comvita Medihoney® range of products.

Comvita’s Medihoney® product range contain a medical-grade antibacterial and healing Manuka honey, along with other ingredients to soothe, relieve and moisturise the skin. The Manuka honey has been scientifically researched and clinically proven to support wound healing and reduce the risk of infection, and all the products are free from soap, parabens, SLS and synthetic fragrances and colours. In addition, the pH balanced products are also dermatologically tested for sensitive, dry and eczema prone skin, and are suitable even for babies. 
I don't really suffer with eczema - well not anymore… I never have before, but suddenly did get a bad bout of skin irritations in the last few weeks of my last pregnancy, and while this has cleared up now, admittedly my skin gotten more sensitive since. However, both my husband and my two little boys all suffer with very sensitive skin. 
Starting with the Medihoney® Antibacterial Wound Gel™, which is a 3-in-1 product that;  
  • Cleans: Naturally cleans the wound of bacteria, dead tissue, dirt and debris by drawing it into the dressing
  • Protects: Reduces the risk of infection
  • Heals: Creates a moist, low pH environment that promotes wound healing
This gel has been made using 80% antibacterial honey and 20% natural plant wax and oils to provide gel that is easy to apply. It works by creating a moist, low pH environment that promotes new tissue formation and wound healing. This Antibacterial Wound Gel is suitable for burns, cuts and grazes and surgical wounds, as well as it can be used on pressure, venous, and leg and foot ulcers.
Recently our little boy was out in the garden helping Daddy, when he fell and graced and cut his cheek on a dirty , and I happy applying this to his cheek knowing that it is gentle and also suitable for his young skin, and that it helped not only naturally clean the would of dirt and bacteria and hence reduce the risk of infection, but that it also helped encourage the would to heel faster with a reduced risk of scarring. And within days the would was already starting to heal, and a week later, only a small mark left on his cheek - so overall this s fantastic having at hand, especially when you've got little clumsy kids, bound to fall and graze their knees and hands.
Then there's the Medihoney® Eczema Cream, which is a rich emollient natural solution for those who are prone to eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis or dry skin. The slightly thick cream offers intense moisture to help soothe and replenish irritated, dry, rough and itchy skin, while it helps the skin maintain its moisture and helps support the natural barrier properties of the skin.
This cream is very gentle and contains no added colour or fragrance, (and hence has next to no scent), as well as it has no added lanolin, parabens and it doesn’t contain mineral oils either. And unlike many other creams and ointments for eczema, this cream does not have any added steroids either, which means that it is suitable for long-term use, including sensitive areas of the body, such as the face, as well as it even be used on children due to its natural and gentle formula. My husband often complains about itchy and irritated skin, especially when he has been out gardening, or has touched something particularly dirty, and he really liked how this cream not only added some much needed moisture back into the skin, but also instantly offered soothing relief to his irritated skin.
Finally, the Medihoney® Natural Skintensive™ is an intensely cream that contains Medihoney® as well as rich plant butters to restore and improve skin condition and to retain moisture. It adds intense moisture to dry and itchy skin, so it is also the perfect winter companion where I've loved using it on my hands which are always drier during the colder months, and it quickly helps restore moisture and soothe any itchiness, although it is a little greasy and takes a while to absorb into the skin, which is why I've been using it on my hands before going to bed. Again, this cream is very gentle and also suitable for both adults and children including those with sensitive or eczema prone skin as it is also free from parabens, SLS, fragrance and petrolatum, as well as it is dermatologically tested.
Overall I have really enjoyed putting these products from Medihoney® to the test, and have particularly loved having the Antibacterial Would Gel in the house, and would now hate to be without it should emergency strike.
