Manuka & Kanuka Essential Oils

New Zealand is the home of the Manuka and Kanuka – native trees that grow naturally in unspoilt green bushland where nature ensures purity and sustained goodness of oil these trees produce. 

Skin Deep sources oils of these trees from East Cape of New Zealand, where Manuka yields a 20% - 28% higher triketone level, the active antiseptic component.

Manuka (Leptospermum scorparium) and Kanuka (Leptospermum Ericoides) were used extensively by both the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand and early European settlers as medicinal plants.

The leaves and bark were used in a variety of ways to cure ailments and illnesses.

From this early tradition NZ Manuka and Kanuka oils have attracted worldwide attention with modern scientific research proving beyond a doubt the healing properties of these unique essential oils. Skin Deep’s 50/50 blend of these 100% essential oils deliver the combined antiseptic properties of both Manuka & Kanuka more effectively into the skin.
 

Manuka Oil

Anti Fungal.  Anti Bacterial.  Anti Inflammatory.  Natural Anti histamine.

These Manuka oil properties help reduce nail and feet infection such as Tinea and swelling and bruising from insect bites.
 

Kanuka Oil


Anti Bacterial.  Anti Viral.  Anti Fungal

Although the Kanuka oil seems to have similar attributes to Manuka it is more bactericidal, therefore more effective against bacteria and viruses e.g. post protection and treatment of  Cold sores.  The finer texture of Kanuka oil means that it has greater penetrating powers and therefore it is an ideal medium in the treatment of Tinea.

Together Manuka and Kanuka work well as anti-viral/anti-fungal agents as well as providing anti-bacterial protection.

Skin Deep Bodycare use these beneficial oils as key components in their products that are designed to achieve healthier skin.
