THE ULTIMATE WELLNESS ADDITION
Mānuka honey is one of nature's greatest weapons for supporting wellness and anti-aging, containing the highest levels of polyphenols of any honey. It's quite literally, the nectar of royalty. This transformative superfood is at the heart of the Madame Gabriela formula and reflects our commitment to the finest quality ingredient sourcing and conscious beauty choices.
Take a journey with us to the farthest reaches of the untouched highlands of New Zealand and discover our difference.
SCIENCE, TRUTH AND BEAUTY
An understanding of the important role bees play as environmental champions was the catalyst for the inclusion of our most cherished ingredient. The research on its potency is well documented, Mānuka is no passing fad; it is highly anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, extremely hydrating and packed with amino acids to harmonize pH balance. In addition, the methylglyoxal found in Mānuka honey has been shown to increase and protect the production of collagen in the skin, promoting true cell level structural growth.
Mānuka Honey can shut down the inflammatory cascade that degrades skin; it stops enzymes called cathepsins from destroying collagen; and it has peptides that help cells release a molecule called NADPH, which boosts energy in the cells, a type of energy that, like everything else, slows down with age.
TRUST IN EVERY TUBE
We don’t just promise effective ingredients in our cellular beauty focused ingredients list, we can prove it. That starts with the right people and location. Our family of beekeepers place their hives in a beautifully remote corner of New Zealand's North Island, with each perfect batch the result of the unique terroir of this area. All that honeybee foraging results in a Mānuka honey that is rich, raw, unpasteurized, non-GMO verified, Halal, Kosher, gluten-free and certified organic. Before leaving for our team in Los Angeles it is independently tested and certified in New Zealand using the Unique Mānuka Factor (UMF™) grading system, which verifies it for quality, purity and authenticity. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, Mānuka honey needs a minimum rating of UMF 10, making our UMF 15+ extremely effective.
Each precious batch of our authentic New Zealand Mānuka honey is minimally processed and delivered by hand to our state-of-the-art facility in California. It’s gently warmed, filtered and added to 26 clean and organic ingredients.
