Travelling with ManukaRx®

The perfect travel companion – ManukaRx™ ointment

When you’re zipping around the world, you need a product on board that does it all. There are so many things you can encounter when travelling, and you simply can’t carry an individual product for everything. Sunburn, insect bites, coral scratches, dry skin, cracked heels, heat rash, dry lips… anything and everything can happen. You need a moisturising, antibacterial protective, gentle natural product that neatly fits in your carry-on. Impossible? Not with ManukaRx ointment.

Beeswax - A Natural Product vs Petroleum Jelly

Originally, petroleum jelly was found coating the bottom of oil rigs in the 1800s. It’s a by-product of oil production, which means it’s unsustainable, and some of the components removed from petroleum jelly in the refining process are carcinogenic. Most importantly, when applied to the skin, it creates a water-repellent barrier that clogs your pores and seals in the dirt. It keeps moisture in the skin, but doesn’t actually have any moisturising properties.
