3 x wound dressings made with medical grade, MGOTM400+ Manuka Honey
Manuka honey has long been known to have superior healing properties because of its stable antibacterial activity. Recognition of its effectiveness continues to increase as manuka honey is utilised for woundcare in hospitals and clinical facilities around the world.
Manuka honey from New Zealand is the only 100% natural product in the world shown to have effective and reliable antibacterial activity due to its exceptionally high levels of the naturally occurring and potent antibacterial compound, methylglyoxal.
New Zealand manuka honey can contain up to 800mg/kg of methylglyoxal. Other honeys have much lower levels ranging from 0-5mg/kg. Experts agree that 100mg/kg of methylglyoxal in manuka honey is the minimum level for health benefits.
Manuka Health wound dressings are made with medical grade MGOTM400+ Manuka Honey that is guaranteed to contain a minimum of 400mg/kg of methylglyoxal. Each pack contains 3 dressings, each measuring 10cm square (4in square).

How do Manuka Health Wound Dressings work?
- Manuka Health’s Wound Dressing is a solid state honey and glycerine gel sheet.
- The gel sheet is approx. 3mm (1/8 in) thick and covered with a breathable (oxygen and moisture) permeable stretch cloth which allows greater conformity.
- The specialised gel sheet is stable and absorbent and contains medical grade MGOTM400+ Manuka Honey.
- The biocompatible polymer releases honey as it absorbs up to 3x its own weight of exudate.
Please do not use if you have a sensitivity to honey or bee products.
