Aloe Vera has been used for thousands of years as a healing herb. The Greeks used Aloe Vera to apply to wounds and today it is used all over the world to soothe minor burns, sunburn, insect bites, skin irritations and chaffing. Our Aloe Vera and Manuka Honey Gel contains 75% Aloe Vera which we have blended with Active 16+ Manuka Honey, Vegetable Glycerin and Vitamin E to create a truly soothing formulation. We have added the essential oils of chamomile, tea tree & lavender to soothe with peppermint oil to cool.

Key benefits
This is an essential product for your first aid cabinet. The very high percentages of aloe vera, active manuka honey and vegetable glycerin contained in this product hydrate and soothe the skin. This gentle formulation is suitable for use on the whole family. This gel is alcohol free, instead we have used natural essential oils to cool so Rescue Me is not drying to skin. Perfect for use after shaving and waxing and to relieve the itching and irritation of bites, chaffing, sunburn and minor burns.

Hero Ingredient: Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera has long been considered an effective soothing and healing ingredient for the treatment of burns and skin injuries. Research has identified several reasons why Aloe Vera spurs wound healing. It has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral compounds that help prevent wound infections and assist with wound healing. In addition it contains immune-stimulating and anti-inflammatory compounds, which stimulate collagen synthesis and skin regeneration. Aloe Vera gel contains vitamins A, B12 and E, plus the minerals zinc, magnesium and calcium, fatty acids, amino acids and is naturally rich in Vitamin C.

Hero Ingredient: Manuka Honey
Some Manuka Honey has a ‘Unique Manuka Factor’ which refers to its level of antibacterial activity. This factor provides an additional potent anti-bacterial action on top of the usual antibacterial abilities of all honeys. It has also been shown to diffuse deeper into skin tissues.

Manuka Honey is tested for its level of activity and issued with a number. A rating of 10 indicates the same level of antiseptic potency of a 10% solution of Phenol (Carbolic Disinfectant). The higher the rating, the higher the activity level is, and therefore the greater the healing ability. All Manuka Honey included in our products has an activity rating of 16+.

In addition to its antibacterial abilities Manuka honey has been shown to be deeply penetrating and hygroscopic (attracts moisture to it), and therefore, very hydrating. 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.
