Honeymark International, a manufacturer of advanced skin care products, has announced that its wound care product, First Aid Antiseptic Lotion (Wound & Burn Dressing with Active Manuka Honey), significantly reduces the presence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in wounds.
MRSA continues to plague hospitals, schools and communities by killing thousands of people each year. The number of hospital admissions for MRSA has significantly increased over the past decade (1000% increase since 1995). It is estimated that 53 million people carrying MRSA. This resilient bacterium is resistant to common antibiotics such as methicillin, amoxicillin, penicillin and oxacillin. It is also expected that MRSA will quickly become resistant to new antibiotics as well. Historically, MRSA has been most common among people with weak immune systems living in hospitals, nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. However, it has become a problem in healthy people, increasing the number of reported cases of community-acquired MRSA.
It has been reported that MRSA, which is now reaching beyond the walls of hospitals and nursing homes into the general community, claims more lives than AIDS in some countries. Thats why products such as Honeymarks First Aid Antiseptic Lotion are being viewed as a valuable alternative to antibiotics. In addition to eradicate MRSA, Honeymarks First Aid Antiseptic Lotion also helps wounds heal faster. When treating wounds or skin ulcers, the effectiveness of Active Manuka Honey in eliminating MRSA and healing Staph infections is a positive finding that has encouraging implications for wound management and infection control.
In addition to the increase in MRSA, the need for more advanced wound care solutions is being driven by an aging population as well as the rise in diabetes and chronic vascular disorders. It is also expected that more mutated, antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria will begin to emerge in the future. Recent market research suggests an increase in the need for Manuka honey-based dressings because of their effectiveness in healing wounds as well as bacterias inability to develop a resistance to Manuka Honey.
Even though most doctors usually prefer pharmaceuticals over natural alternatives, MRSAs ability to defeat antibiotics has left the medical industry with no choice other than to take Manuka Honey products seriously. At a time when consumers are becoming more educated on the negative health effects of synthetic pharmaceutical ingredients and gaining interest in all-natural products, Honeymark is capitalizing on the astounding health benefits of Manuka Honey. To date, there has been no reports of any negative side effects to using Manuka Honey for medical purposes.
"Manuka Honey attacks bacteria in a different manner in which antibiotics do," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. "Manuka Honeys osmotic action has to draw moisture out of the bacteria, making it impossible for them to survive. This is why MRSA and other hard-to-kill bacteria will never be able to develop a resistance to it."
