For over 2,000 years honey has been used as a topical anti-microbial agent and dressing; specifically honey derived from the nectar of the Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium) has its own unique chemical properties." Manuka honey contains glucose oxidase imparted by the bees during its collection and storage. The enzyme facilitates low level release of hydrogen peroxide when in the presence of wound exudates and thus supports cellular proliferation and metabolism through an antioxidant effect. The high sugar and low pH content creates a high osmotic potential which gives honey excellent debridement and anti-inflammatory properties. One of the biggest difficulties with the use of honey in the wound dressings is ensuring that once applied it stays over the wound area. Many attempts to coat dressings have been unsuccessful: often the active honey ingredient is left within the packaging severely reducing the effectiveness of the dressing. Kruuse Manuka dressings come from a process that has successfully impregnated the active honey within the dressing. This process ensures precise and easy application even if wearing surgical gloves. The antimicrobial potency in Manuka honey is rated by a standardized rating known as Unique Manuka Factor (UMF); the higher the UMF the better the antimicrobial effect. A minimum UMF of 10 is required to ensure sufficient effect in the wound environment; Kruuse Manuka Honey Wound Dressings have a Unique Manuka Factor of 15. There is a restricted annual supply of Manuka honey as this unique product supply is controlled by a small number of producers in New Zealand. Many current honey products available use blends of Manuka honey with other poorer quality honey, these are often less effective. JorVet Manuka uses 100% Manuka honey in all its dressings with a portion of the profits of the sale being returned directly to the Maori tribe that oversees the production of Manuka honey.
