Known scientifically as curcuma longa, turmeric is a member of the ginger family. Its fragrant oil is bright yellow, though there are colourless versions available for skincare. The oil contains turmerone, alpha-tumerone, curlone and even eucalyptol. These combine to make turmeric oil a powerful tool in your herbal remedy cabinet.

Skin is the largest organ in the body. The skin barrier performs an essential service in keeping us healthy and alive. While protecting us from outside threats, such as bacteria, it also has a far more important job: keeping moisture inside our bodies. Water is vital to keep our organs running optimally, and the skin barrier supports this.
In New Zealand, weather can be extreme. The burning summer sun and harsh winters strip our skin of moisture. Because the skin on your lips is more sensitive than the rest of your skin, it can be quick to complain. Dry, peeling, cracked lips are a sign that the barrier function of lip skin has been compromised. And if you frequently lick your lips, the problem is exacerbated.
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.
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.
