What is manuka oil?

Manuka oil is made from the manuka plant, or Leptospermum scoparium, which is native to New Zealand. From scientific study on manuka plants grown around the country, it was found that the highest quality manuka oil could be made from the plants native to the East Cape in the Northern Island. The plants in this remote region are said to contain the highest levels of antimicrobial triketone compounds, making them the best to be made into multi-use manuka oil.

Often compared to a similar essential oil, tea tree, manuka oil was found to be better in terms of their antibacterial properties. Independent In-Vitro studies by the Cawthron Institute in New Zealand concluded that East Cape Manuka Oil was found to be 20 to 30 times more active than Australian Tea tree Oil in controlling gram positive bacteria. This has made manuka oil very popular amongst native Maori tribes who used it for a number of purposes including:

  • Bites and stings
  • Damaged skin
  • Muscle pain
  • Fungus
  • Body Odour
  • Infections
  • Dandruff

East Cape Manuka Cream

East Cape Manuka cream is a unique formulation of natural ingredients that utilises the benefits of manuka oil to make a gentle and easy to use cream. Designed to help balance the skin's flora to make it more resistant to common minor skin problems, East Cape Manuka Cream can aid a number of issues related to bacteria and fungus including:

  • Athlete's foot
  • Ringworm
  • Foot and nail fungus
  • yeast infections

It can also be used to help repel insects such as head lice, mosquitos and sandflies.

This information was found through research into manuka oil by the University of Otago who found that East Cape Manuka oil is effective in combating bacteria as well as fungi that can cause skin issues such as Tinea (Athlete's foot), Ringworm, jock itch, nail fungus and foot and body odour. They also found that East Cape Manuka oil supports the control of the Candida Albicans fungus as well as controlling bacteria present in vaginosis infections at low concentrations. After research into manuka oil and skin care creams, the experts at Manuka Naturals combined a 5% concentration of manuka oil with a premium formulation to create its East Cape Manuka Cream.
