The latest addition to the Honest Bee cosmetic skincare line is the Manuka line with hand cream, day cream and night cream. Manuka is in the spotlight and it’s not surprising. It has special properties and is often used for skin problems. Manuka honey helps hydrate, repair and soothe the skin. This honey is transformed into day and night cream and hand cream. The creams are BDIH / COSMOS certified, have a pleasant smell and do not contain palm oil.
Manuka honey comes from the subtropical forests of New Zealand. The honey nectar is collected by bees from the flowers of the Manuka shrub, also called “tea tree”. Tea trees have been known to the wild peoples of Australia and New Zealand for thousands of years for their beneficial effects due to their special properties.

The hand cream tube is made of durable material, 57% PCR. PCR stands for post-consumer recycled, it is a recycled material used by the end user. This circular material aims to reuse products and raw materials as much as possible. Recycling plastic creates new plastic products. The tubes consist of different layers where the inner layer does not come in contact with the PCR, hence the 57% PCR.
The advantages of PCR equipment:
- Savings on the use of fossil raw materials through reuse
- The material is made from waste
- Reduction of CO2 emissions
- Contribution to reducing the mountain of waste
- It’s circular: the packaging can be recycled
The Manuka line has been tested well and received an average rating of 7.5! “You feel it’s working, it’s doing something” and “my skin is hydrated” were some of the responses. Others have found the creams to absorb well, to be smooth and to provide a nourishing sensation.
Good for your body and for nature
In addition to honey, bees also make other special products, all of which are rich in active ingredients that help keep skin and hair healthy and beautiful. Honest bee cosmetics put it to good use by combining it with, among other things, carefully selected plant extracts. Since each skin also needs specific care, the formulas are precisely tailored to the needs of different skin types.
