Honey and Herbs is a New Zealand company that was founded in 1992. For many years prior to that, the company have been making skin care products using natural ingredients from their beehives. In 1992, Apicare was launched in many trade shows with the original Apicare products – honey, beeswax candles, Gardener's Handcreme and two honey soaps. Over time, an extensive range of natural skin care products using active Manuka Honey were added.
In 2005, the owners’ (Chas and Pamela) daughter – Justine, who is a qualified physiotherapist with an interest in cosmetic science and formulations, joined the organisation and has since been working on developing Apicare products. Their skin care products are manufactured in New Zealand and are based on the healing power of Manuka honey.
New Zealand's unique Manuka Honey has powerful healing and anti-bacterial properties. That's why they have included it in Apicare's extensive range of healing honey skin care since they began making skin care products. All the Manuka honey used in their skin care has been tested by an independent laboratory and certified as being active prior to being added to their formulations. They are proud to be the first company in the world to use Manuka honey in skin care and then first again in using Active Manuka honey in skin care.
