First Honey FAQs
First Honey introduces a new range of revolutionary First Aid products enriched with the natural bioactive properties of medical-grade Manuka honey. With First Honey bandages and First Honey ointment as well as many other manuka honey infused bandages you can rest assured you are getting only the highest quality products for the treatment of your skin.
How does it work?
Medical-grade Manuka honey has become widely used by healthcare professionals to treat and manage wounds. Found only in New Zealand, Manuka honey contains the presence of Methylglyoxal (MGO) a potent healing compound that does not naturally occur in any other kinds of honey. Due to these healing properties, it is ideal for use in manuka honey bandages for effective treatment. Not only does it allow the skin to remain moisturised to prevent against scabbing, but it also allows for the skin to be completely nourished.
Why should I First Honey Adhesive Bandages?
The use of first aid honey dressings promotes faster, better healing and prevent infection, without the use of artificial antibiotics. Not only can it reduce the sign of scaring, but the nutrients from the manuka honey infused bandages help the skin to heal faster and look completely natural.
What does Medical Grade 12+ mean?
Manuka honey contains the presence of Methylglyoxal giving it the potent properties to mend and nourish our skin. The 12+ rating is a measurement of the natural chemical characteristics within Manuka honey, which assures its purity and efficacy when using first aid honey dressings. First Honey® tests every batch of Manuka honey used within our First Honey ointment and First Honey bandages to ensure it meets our strict criteria for Medical Grade usage, free of any contaminants or irritants.
What makes First Honey different?
The efficacy of the Manuka honey used in First Honey plasters and ointments is unparalleled due to its high standard for handling, placement of beehives, and manufacturing process. First Honey has a fully integrated ISO-accredited system to manage the honey from beehive to final product, ensuring that only the purest, highest-quality medical-grade Manuka honey is present in every bandage and tube.
Stop the overuse of antibiotics. According to the FDA, CDC, and World Health Organization, antibiotic resistance, which can result from the overuse of antibiotics, is the biggest problem facing medicine today. Many of the common, over-the-counter wound care ointments contain three antibiotics, yielding an exposure that’s equivalent to a prescription antibiotic pill given by a medical professional.
