Your skin has a water content of 10 to 30 percent, which gives it a soft, smooth and flexible texture. The water comes from the atmosphere, the underlying layers of skin and perspiration. Oil produced by skin glands and fatty substances produced by skin cells act as natural moisturizers allowing the skin’s surface to seal in water. Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream, applied after a shower or bath as daily maintenance, will improve the health and youthful appearance of your skin and heal unwanted conditions.
Bee the change you wish to see in your skin
Gathered in the wild New Zealand backcountry from the flower of the native Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium), and cherished for it’s healing qualities, Manuka Honey is produced by bees that don’t use the pollen from a variety of other flowers or plants, so the content of the honey is very consistent.
In Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream, Manuka Honey combines with pure botanicals and a unique blend of essential oils for deep-moisturizing therapy. It soothes and relieves dry, itchy or cracked skin quickly while restoring moisture, and it provides soothing comfort to wounds, sores, cuts and burns. The Manuka Honey in our Advanced Healing Skin Cream also relieves the pain and itch of psoriasis and other skin conditions.
Dry skin (xerosis) is sometimes associated with pathological conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Sjögren syndrome and malnutrition. Whatever the cause, Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream provides fast, comforting relief.
A 2013 study in the European Journal of Medical Research used Active Manuka Honey under dressings on post-operative wounds for an 85 percent success rate in clearing up infections, compared with 50 percent for normal antibiotic creams.
Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. It wasn't until the late 19th century that researchers discovered honey has natural antibacterial qualities.
Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria. Some honey also stimulates production of special cells that can repair tissue damaged by infection. In addition, honey has an anti-inflammatory action that can quickly reduce pain and inflammation once it is applied.
But not all honey is the same. The antibacterial quality of honey depends on the type as well as when and how it's harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others.
Hydrogen peroxide is the component that gives most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including Manuka Honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities.
Methylglyoxal (MG) is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities, and the higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect. In Manuka Honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound—dihydroxyacetone—that is found in high concentration in the nectar of Manuka flowers. It is also thought there are other compounds involved in the medicinal effects of Manuka Honey.
Besides its potent antibacterial properties, honey is also naturally extremely acidic (with a pH that falls between 3, 4 and 5), which will eliminate organisms that may attempt to grow on the affected skin. Additionally, honey contains very little water in its natural state, creating an environment in which germs get smothered and die.
Saving your Skin
Dry skin appears dehydrated, peeled, irritated and inflamed. It feels rough, scaly, sometimes painful and itchy. Severe cases may be characterized by intense redness and itchiness and the skin shows the tendency to crack, causing deep fissures that may bleed. Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream soothes and relieves all of these symptoms quickly while restoring moisture, and providing extra hydration protection and soothing comfort to wounds, sores, cuts and burns with the healing power of New Zealand Manuka honey.
What causes dry skin?
Our skin is our barrier against the environment and is comprised of three layers. The epidermis, the outer layer, has keratinocytes that provide skin hydration (lipids).
Simple causes of lipid depletion include harsh soap, itchy clothing, and long and hot showers or baths. Dry skin (xerosis) often worsens in the winter, when you may go from low temperatures and low humidity outdoors to drying heat indoors, which can cause decreased amounts of water in the outermost layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum). During summer, constant exposure to air conditioning may produce similar effects.
Use Natural Findings Advanced Healing Skin Cream with exclusive Manuka Honey from New Zealand as daily maintenance for the health and youthful appearance of your skin. Or, to heal unwanted skin conditions, use the creamy white formula several times a day until conditions improve. Chronic or severe dry skin problems require a dermatologist's advice. It's important have a diagnosis to exclude other skin diseases.

Shea butter, aloe Vera and oat flour—essential oils of peppermint, nutmeg, clove, lavender and black pepper—flower essences of self heal, oak, sunflower, pine and vervain—are all combined in a proprietary formula to maximize the benefits of each individual ingredient, including, of course, the Manuka Honey.
