MEDIHONEY® ANTIBACTERIAL HONEY
MEDIHONEY® wound care and skin care products contain medical grade Antibacterial Honey. Advanced biomedical research has identified specific plants that produce honey with exceptional antibacterial activity. The antibacterial activity of honey differs according to the plant species and may vary enormously within any one species. MEDIHONEY® Antibacterial Honey™ is a standardised antibacterial honey, predominantly Leptospermum sp. selected for its road range of antibacterial actions.
In 2007, the journal Wounds featured an article that evaluated the in vitro activity of MEDIHONEY® Antibacterial Honey™ against a challenge set of 127 clinical isolates with multiple antibiotic resistance. The study showed that the MEDIHONEY® Antibacterial Honey™ was effective at effective at inhibiting these bacteria irrespective of their level of antibiotic resistance.
