Lysine is an essential amino acid found in protein which isn’t produced in your body. [1]

High-strength Manuka honey – made by bees collecting nectar from New Zealand Manuka bushes – contains the active ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO), which has an antimicrobial [2] and also anti-bacterial properties, according to a 2018 study by Ulster University. [3]

In a 2009 German and New Zealand study, researchers suggested honey could speed up the healing process in skin because: [4]

  • honey stimulates the inflammatory response in the body, leading to the regeneration of skin cells and connective tissues
  • the pH level of honey is very low, which reduces infection and is hydrating

Avena sativa (Oat) kernel oil is a golden lipid extracted from oats with amazing moisturising and healing properties and a non-greasy finish.

Witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) is a shrub that’s indigenous to the United States and has been used for centuries by Native Americans as a remedy for a variety of skin ailments related to irritation and inflammation. [6]
