High strength MGO Mānuka Honey mask promotes cell regeneration and reduces inflammation. Mānuka Honey contains a chemical called methylglyoxal (MGO) that inhibits the growth of microbes. Further, it exhibits non-peroxide activity. When glucose oxidase (an enzyme produced by bees) reacts with glucose and oxygen molecules (moisture in the skin) it produces hydrogen peroxide which reduces inflammation and makes your skin feel smooth and hydrated. The other chemical Mānuka Honey possesses is Dihydroxyacetone which is an omega 3 acid that is extremely nourishing to the skin. We also add 5 % Mānuka Oil so that only is your mask deeply hydrating, it is also super cleansing.
