The Skin & Wound Crème contains 80% Mānuka honey, 18% lanolin and 2% plant oils (citronella and rosemary). The lanolin increases the temperature stability, making it more pliable when cold and more viscous when warm, reducing run-off. In addition to this, the lanolin makes the crème water repellent. The plant oils have natural insect repellent properties, impeding both fly's and ants from making contact with the wound.
The crème is designed to be used on wounds that no longer need bandaging (such as distal limb wounds with a good bed of granulation tissue), those that don’t need to be bandaged (such as minor abrasions, partial thickness wounds and ‘mud-fever’) and those that can’t be bandaged (such as wounds of the upper limb and body).
