Activist Mānuka is the inspiration of wife and husband, Gabrielle Mirkin and her New Zealand born husband Luke Harwood. Together they conceived of a conscious company that delivered the highest grade raw mānuka honey, wildcrafted in Aotearoa, New Zealand, where bees pollinate the native mānuka bushes that bloom during a short window in the austral summer. Gabrielle and Luke work with local harvesters to pay more than fair wages for the highest quality Mānuka honey available.
Mānuka honey is well studied for its healing properties with high levels of enzymes and antibacterial properties. It was traditionally used as medicine, and today is used for everything from enhancing immunity to combating acne. Activists’ honeys are all methylglyoxal (MGO) certified to guarantee the authenticity and antibacterial rating of the products. MGO certification guarantees that you are getting real mānuka honey. The higher the MGO rating, the more pronounced the antibacterial properties.
