contact dermatitis skin care

Dry hands? Cracked skin and nails from too much washing?

Kerrie Vic 2020


I am keen to share 2 miracle stories associated with the manuka hand cream from the Bee Products range. Edward, my youngest was afflicted with dreadful eczema.

The creases in his elbows and behind his knees would regularly crack and bleed and he would try so hard not to scratch. He was an incredible stoic and we tried lots of different things including creams from the Royal Children’s hospital.

This dear little boy never complained but resisted any topical treatments.  He simply refused to try anything after a while as everything caused pain. Along came the hand cream and so for some reason, he knew, instinctively it was safe to try .After a week he asked for more. By the third tube, his skin was soft, supple and glossy. It was amazing and fast. He is now, 18 and has never had a recurrence. We were so lucky to have found the product.

My sister had a corporate events and flower business and suffered from ‘really bad hand syndrome’!!  By this I mean they were red, raw, and itchy and the webbing between the fingers was cracking and breaking down.

I gave her a tube and by the next day she could see an improvement. Her hands settled and she has continued to use the product and is symptom free. Being able to help friends and family with a product that is so safe you could eat it, is enormously rewarding. Thank you CResults, Bee Products and thank you bees and of course the manuka trees…

All the best,

Sarah Vic

should i exfoliate

Should I Exfoliate?

The Truth about using Exfoliant as a major skincare treatment.

Should I exfoliate? Simple answer… Yes!

Exfoliation is extremely effective. On acne, scarring, thick damaged or normal skin it helps to stay fresh and healthy. The purpose of an Exfoliant is not just superficial, it lies deep in the skin.                                                          

How does an Exfoliant work?

Exfoliation is a genuine rejuvenation treatment for the skin’s surface and the deep-skin tissue that’ll become the skin you see. Your skin sheds dead cells, approximately on a 28 day cycle. Skin cells mix with pollutants and oils on the surface and become sticky, creating a dull unhealthy looking skin. The cells can become very dry and flaky.

In winter this often happens when we are surrounded by artificial, dry heat and extreme conditions. It also occurs when we’re outside in harsh winds and rain. Clothing and scarves close around our face also draw moisture from the cells. Your skin may become oily in water as the oil glands become over-active and stressed with the drying conditions. This extra oil blends with shedding cells and creates an environment for bacteria and fungus. This can create more problems with whiteheads, blackheads and breakouts.

Exfoliants effectively remove sticky, oily dead cells, increasing circulation, stimulating healthy cell growth and a beautiful complexion.

Effects on Skin.

Exfoliation and cleansing retard wrinkles and the skins aging process by keeping it fresh and healthy. In the aging skin, deep cells in the skin become thin and lose their elasticity. Exfoliation promotes restoration of cells. With the increase in production the cells become more compact and thicker adding firmness to support layers of the skin. 

Exfoliation is a renewal to the deep tissues, giving firmness and more tone to the skin.  Increased blood flow by the stimulation of exfoliating increases oxygen and nutrients in the dermis and epidermis. The exchange of toxins and waste improve the quality of the reproducing basal cells. Exfoliating is very constructive to the skin and increases its strength. It also stimulates connective tissue therfore reducing superficial wrinkles.  Increasing blood flow aids in dispersing congealed blood, diffusing redness of the skin in tiny blood vessels.

Should I exfoliate for acne. 

The real benefits of exfoliation for acne lie in its ability to cleanse deep in the skin. This aids to open clogged pores and decongest asphyxiated skin. Increasing blood flow aids with detoxing and healing the skin, in other words allowing replacement of important nutrients and water. There is no limit to the number of exfoliations the skin will tolerate. Exfoliating gently 3 or 4 times a week, followed by a day or night cream. This adds nourishment and moisture to the prepared skin and would be extremely beneficial.                                                                                                                                                                           

Recommend regular exfoliation.

CResults Exfoliant is extremely gentle and effective using Jojoba wax beads as the abrasive. These beads are gentle and kind to the skin with minimal aggression. The jojoba beads are perfect spheres. They roll over the skins surface stimulating it without causing micro cuts that can damage the skin.

Most importantly it is suitable for all skin types, male and female. 

Always follow exfoliation with Moisturizing Protective Day Cream or Hydrating Renewal Cream.

If the skin is aged, dehydrated, damaged or suffering with acne, follow exfoliation with Manuka Makeover Mask with 20% raw Manuka Honey. Leave on for 20 minutes, emulsify with warm water, remove with warm cloth and apply Hydrating Renewal Cream. This will continue the Manuka honey activity throughout the night.

For extreme persistent skin problems, replace the Makeover mask with the new Manuka Dermal Salvage Repair cream, with 30% raw manuka honey and lavender oil. This cream is highly effective to reduce inflammation and repair scars.

Coronavirus and manuka honey

Coronavirus and Manuka Honey, most common questions.

I was there when the research began 30 years ago. I must admit I have witnessed some extraordinary results from using New Zealand, certified Manuka Honey. Its efficacy has been seen for both internal and external health problems.

Q. Can Manuka Honey help me at the moment with Coronavirus?

It’s a common question today, however, the best answer is Manuka honey is more about being proactive. Looking after your health in general is the best remedy.

Following your governments social-distancing and hygiene recommendations, there is a very good chance you won’t get the virus.

However, there are still more-common flues, colds and coughs around every winter that you’re more probable of catching.

There is an endless flow of cures on the internet relating to Manuka honey. Not all of them are correct and many of them are misleading. Many put no thought or care towards how to use the honey.

The first thing I suggest is get the genuine Manuka Honey.

It’s not about the numbers it’s about the honey.

  • Check, is it certified?
  • Does it contain stable Methoglyoxal?

I only recommend New Zealand Manuka Honey. I know where it comes from. Beginning from the area it’s harvested and the hives it’s come from to the final jar on the shelf.

Every vat is tested for the correct certification and labelling. The honey has to go through 3 tests before it can be exported and even then the Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) take out a random jar to confirm the tests again.

There is no other Manuka Honey in the world so stringently checked and confirmed for its purity and identification.

Q. How much should I take?

I suggest 3 teaspoons a day keeps the doctor away. The best one you should never miss is the last one for the day. This one before bed, allows the honey to stay in the gut and bowel longer. This delivers all the benefits Manuka Honey is renowned for. Personally, I take a dessert spoon at night.

Q.  Can I mix the manuka honey with other things?

Yes a teaspoon in a cup of tea or coffee or just boiled water is fine. It’s well documented 1ml of manuka honey to 50 mls of fluid is still active.

Q.  What makes Manuka honey different to other honeys?

New Zealand Manuka Honey was one of the first honeys to be tested for its medicinal property’s. It was discovered farmers used it for mastitis on dairy cattle and ulcers in Bobby calves mouths with extraordinary results. A scientist called Peter Molan started to research why this particular honey was so effective.

He found 3 very important factors…

Manuka honey that contained the Methoglyoxal was a very strong anti-inflammatory and was very effective as a natural anti-bacterial agent. Most importantly these qualities didn’t break down like other honeys under stress.

  1. Adding Manuka Honey to a fluid it didn’t break down, it maintained its integrity and still delivers the above results.
  2. Heating Manuka Honey it still keeps its integrity.
  3. It was exposed to UV light and still maintained its properties.

These points are very important. Most other natural, cold pressed, raw honeys lose their mild medicinal properties when exposed to

  • light
  • heat
  • reduction

These special components of manuka honey mean it is still  active in an open environment (topical application). Alos blended with a liquid or heated (internal application).

teaspoon of honey good for you

If you listen to the experts, the recommended dose of Manuka Honey per day is 1-2 tablespoons to reap the benefits.

But the question should be “why am I taking Manuka Honey?

If it’s just for general health all pure, raw honeys are good for you and a teaspoon on your toast each morning is an excellent sweet spread. But if you have other ideas about your health and think Manuka Honey might help, then think about what you’re trying to do.

What makes Manuka Honey special?

Like all things popular on earth, the internet runs away with reality, honey’s are honey and some have more active ingredients and health benefits than others, only trial and error will separate the truth about which honeys do what.

As in my last blog post (Which level of Manuka Honey is best?), honey is a food so there are enormous restrictions on what claims can be made. I can only talk about my experience after 30 years in the Manuka Honey industry and the miracles I have experienced. Although anecdotal, I have an endless collection of testimonials regarding our Manuka Honey and the products we produce from Manuka honey.

Along my journey I have discovered that natural, pure honeys harvested and cold pressed, have amazing properties. It’s been documented for thousands of years how man has used honey for a range of external and internal disorders as well as wound care.
