We have presented here a more detailed write-up and product description to help give you a better understanding of the key features and how they can really benefit during your long days of adventure.
Lanolin is an ointment-like material isolated from wool that is sheared from sheep. It acts as a lubricant on the skin surface and absorbs moisture at the same time. Once it penetrates into the skin, it holds up to 2 times its weight in water, so it’s a fantastic moisture reservoir for skin.
Leptospermum Scoparium Mel (UMF 15+ Active Manuka Honey)
Research from the University of Waikato (Hamilton, New Zealand) has shown that Manuka Honey has an especially remarkable antibacterial property, found only in the Leptospermum species.
This has been called the Unique Manuka Factor or UMF® which refers to its level of non-peroxide antibacterial activity. This factor provides additional potent anti-bacterial actions on top of the usual anti-bacterial abilities of standard honey. The higher the UMF® rating, the higher the activity level is, and therefore the greater the healing ability. Each batch of UMF® Manuka honey is tested and certified by accredited laboratories in New Zealand. To receive a UMF® grading, a honey must have the presence of DHA (dihydroxyacetone), Methylglyoxal, and Leptosperin
In addition, Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therefore, very rehydrating. It has anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties
and has demonstrated the ability to accelerate tissue repair, aiding in skin repair and the reduction of scarring. Biomaxa Manuka Honey is UMF®15+
Leptospermum Scoparium (Manuka) Oil
Manuka oil has shown to be effective in anti-bacterial laboratory tests against 39 separate micro-organisms, in particular, streptococci and staphylococcal bacteria and fungi that affect the
skin. It has been shown to treat or aid in the treatment of Skin Abrasions, Abscesses, Blisters, Cracked skin, Eczema, Fungal infections, and Pimples.
Cera Alba (Bees Wax)
Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the hive of honey bees. It assists in helping hold in moisture and prevents clogging of pores. It can be used as a healing agent and is deeply moisturizing, it also creates a waterproof barrier on the skin. A little known fact is that it formed part of the very first cosmetic cream created by Greek physician, Galen, in 150AD. The cream consisted of beeswax and olive oil with water (or rose water) beaten into it. Because it cooled the skin, it was dubbed ‘cold cream,’ but it also softened and moisturized, too.
Water used in the production of Biomaxa Ultra-Ride is sourced from naturally replenishing aquifers deep below ground in Canterbury, New Zealand. It is some of the cleanest and purest water in the world. No treatment or processing is needed. In fact, it is the same water that comes from the tap as drinking water for the population of Christchurch.
