Naturally healthy skin for New Zealand children


Comvita, the world’s largest manufacturer of Manuka honey, has developed a range of Natural Eczema products that harness the unique properties of their premium medical grade Manuka honey. Comvita’s Medihoney® medical grade honey is supported by a large body of scientific and clinical research. Medihoney® products are used in hospitals and clinics around the world with outstanding results.

The newly released Medihoney® Natural Eczema Care range will be on display at the Baby Show, August 22-24th, ASB Showgrounds, Auckland. Comvita’s Clinical Advisor, Heidi Darcy will be on hand throughout the show to talk to parents about the certified natural range. As an eczema sufferer herself, Darcy knows only too well the relentless nature of this condition and the need for a range of options to support healthy skin. There are five products in the range, providing options for both broken and intact skin.

Because families are concerned about what they put on their child’s skin, the Comvita Medihoney® Eczema range is certified natural by the Natural Products Association (NPA). This global, independent organisation provides assurance to families that the products it certifies are truly natural. Free from petrolatum, mineral oils, parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, synthetic colours or fragrances, the products contain natural nourishing ingredients to combat dry skin.

Because eczema is more than skin deep, families need more than just products to put on their skin. Comvita has developed a range of practical management tools such as an eczema wound management guide, eczema management tips, an eczema management plan and a sibling support booklet. They have also recently launched Eczema Care NZ, a Facebook based support group for New Zealand families.
