Manuka Doctor continues to rack up the award accolades, this time for its Clarifying Moisturiser, clinically proven to help calm skin and reduce redness.(1) The focus this year for the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards was Green & Clean beauty products, which fits the Manuka Doctor brand like a glove!
Consumers are now looking for, and people are ever more conscious of, not just what they are putting on their skin, but the ethics surrounding those products. How they are sourced, the ingredients, is the packaging natural? The Global Green Beauty Awards are eco-friendly, green and ethical and this is reflected in the product categories and the brands awarded with accolades. Manuka Doctor’s Clarifying Moisturiser was awarded within the ‘Best Honey Based Category’. Our skincare products are made with sustainable and genuine Manuka honey, certified by the New Zealand Government to an incredibly high standard providing you with the most pure and reliable natural ingredients all the way from our hives to your home.
“I love the lightness of this scent free texture, a sensitive skin needs support from the right type of ingredients, not just thick rich products which might over power the skin”Recommended by Celebrity Facialist - Abigail James
We also take great care to ensure future supply of our Manuka honey. We have committed to plant at least 360,000 Manuka bush seedlings, creating one of the biggest privately-owned wild Manuka plantations in New Zealand.
Not only is the way we source our honey ethical, we have also moved to more eco-friendly packaging. We’ve given our skincare an overhaul, streamlining our range, increasing sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of our packaging. It’s now better than ever, for your skin and our environment.
We’re committed to have zero landfill waste across our entire skincare range by 2026 and our new range has made a great leap towards this goal. Our packaging now has increased sustainability and is 100% recyclable.
Our bio-plastic tubes are created using ethanol pressed from sugar cane plants and our labels are created using a 100% wood-based residue left over from the pulping process in sustainably managed forests.
Our cartons have no plastic wrapping to seal our boxes or foil print which is non-recyclable.
To give you a recap on the amazing natural properties of the Manuka Doctor Clarifying Moisturiser, it is a light-weight anti-redness cream full of skin feeding prebiotics and has proven time and time again to be of great benefit to those suffering from facial redness. A recent independent trial of 30 volunteers with rosacea / reddened skin evaluated the effectiveness of this fragrance-free calming moisturiser twice daily over 4 weeks. 97% agreed the Moisturiser calmed skin after 14 days use whilst a reduction in redness was noticed after 28 days use (87%). 90% agreed their skin felt soft and smooth after 14 days.

Natural prebiotic ingredients Manuka honey and Chicory root, help to re-balance the skin to promote a healthier looking complexion. The MGO found in Manuka honey gives it greater antimicrobial properties than other honeys, which means it’s better able to fight skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Being anti-inflammatory, it can also help soothe red, irritated skin.
Blackcurrant seed oil helps to protect, strengthen and promote healthier looking skin. An extract from the Larch tree and Hyaluronic Acid help to keep skin hydrated and Gardenia Tahitensis flower extract and Coconut oil both help reduce inflammation. Coconut oil’s antimicrobial properties also help protect the skin from harmful bacteria.
As well as what we put into our products, it’s also important to consider what we’ve left out – SLS, SLES, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Siloxanes, Aluminium, DEA, MEA.
