The heart and home of our business is in the remote, untouched regions of New Zealand, where the world’s most potent Mānuka and Kānuka trees grow and thrive in their native environment.
Our 100% pure New Zealand Mānuka and Kānuka oils are extracted from the leaf and twig of harvested plants through a natural steam distilation process - no added substances or chemicals are used during this process.
Our essential oils and hydrosol products are ideal for aromatherapy or as an ingredient for cosmetic or skincare products, or as flavour ingredient.
Our range includes...
MβTK™ Graded Oils
All Mānuka Oil harvested and distilled by New Zealand Mānuka Bioactives is tested and graded using the MβTK™ grading system determined by the percentage of β-Triketones present in the distilled oil.
Flavesone, leptospermone, isoleptospermone and grandiflorone are naturally occurring organic compounds collectively known as Mānuka β-Triketones (MβTK™). Mānuka β-Triketones have been shown to have very high antimicrobial properties in many peer-reviewed and in-vitro scientific research studies.
MβTK™ levels vary in concentration depending on many factors such as soil, climate, location, ecological environment and seasonal variations throughout New Zealand.
