TURNER New Zealand expands its range of wild-harvested manuka products with the introduction of its new TURNER100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil, which is set to make an impact on managing several common, yet very annoying, skin conditions such as acne.
Irvine, California Jan 17, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – TURNER New Zealand, a global health and nutritional products company with operations in New Zealand, USA, Europe, UK, and China, announced today the launch of its TURNER 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil that expands its existing range of highly popular functional Manuka honey products.
According to the company’s founder and CEO, Noel Turner, “Our company is committed to bringing the best and most biologically active products from New Zealand’s pure and pristine environment to the rest of the world; and Manuka-based products are at the top of our list.” He said, “we are very excited about the prospect of introducing our 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil to the North American and global marketplace, expanding our broader manuka-based businesses and product range.”
When asked about the significance of using East Cape Manuka Oil compared to other Manuka oil from other regions of New Zealand, Turner indicated significant regional differences in the quality and potency of the oil found within manuka plants used for production. Turner went on to say that independent research has proven that the variety of native manuka found in the East Cape of New Zealand has excellent health-promoting properties, such as its potent antibacterial and antifungal activity; for example, it is incredibly effective against the fungal organism that causes time when it is topically applied to the skin. He also said that the research has focused on the antibacterial effectiveness against acne-causing bacteria. Turner said, “not only is it effective against acne-causing bacteria, but it does so without causing the irritation that is common with other “over-the-counter” skin treatments.
Turner said that this regional effect is only found in the Manuka Oil, which is steam distilled from the manuka bushes, but is not necessarily true for manuka honey because the biological activity comes from the manuka flower and not the oil. He said that highly potent antibacterial effects, which are commonly associated with manuka honey, can be found in honey from many different regions of New Zealand.
Over the past several years, a great deal of New Zealand Government and private sector investment has gone into the testing of the effectiveness of manuka oil from the East Cape region, and that has led to the development of a pharmaceutical industry making pharmaceutical grade Manuka Oil.
In recent years the New Zealand Government has signaled its intent to make Manuka Oil that is produced from the East Cape region of New Zealand a high priority investment for future economic development.
One of the driving factors in the future development of New Zealand’s manuka oil industry is based on several research papers that show East Cape manuka oil is significantly more potent in its antibacterial and antifungal activity than its widely popular cousin, the Australian tea tree oil that is commonly used for similar applications.
Noel Turner said consumers get confused between Australian Tea Tree Oil and New Zealand Manuka Oil is, which has resulted in some even referring to Manuka as New Zealand Tea Tree; however, he cautioned that the two were totally unrelated species and should not be confused or substituted for each other. “The research,” he said, “on the benefits for treating common fungal infections of the skin was overwhelmingly positive for East Cape manuka oil, while the same could not be said for Australian Tea Tree Oil.
Turner said there are several uses for manuka oil beyond the obvious topical antifungal application. Manuka oil is commonly used in aromatherapy for meditation and focusing concentration; he noted that manuka oil has a pleasant “earthy” and “fresh cut grass” aroma, which reminds him of the smell from his native New Zealand Forest after a Spring shower.
TURNER 100% Pure East Cape Manuka Oil (10ml bottle) is now available from frezzor.com, walmart.com, ebay.com, and amazon.com.
