The use of honey for healing goes back thousands of years, to ancient Greece and Egypt. In recent years, a resurgence in the science and use of honey has driven research and clinical testing to understand the healing properties and effectiveness of medical-grade honey in wound healing. Most specifically, the Leptospermum species or Manuka plant has shown to produce a unique honey optimal for wound healing. As a result, clinicians worldwide are championing the use of medical-grade honey across the spectrum of care.
MEDIHONEY® is the global leading line of medical-grade honey products for the management of wounds and burns.
Derived from the Leptospermum species of plant in New Zealand, these unique dressings have properties which are beneficial throughout all phases of wound healing.
