KANUKA is native to New Zealand and is visible on both the North and South islands, but the South Island is the most concentrated. There is a famous coast in the southeast of the South Island, which is directly named “KANUKA COAST”.
Although Kanuka is a shrub, but it can grow to 10 to 15 meters high. The amazing thing is that the tree is large but it is equipped with small leaflets.
The Kanuka leaf is only 1 cm, and the inconspicuous white flowers are spread among the trees, but the smell is very fragrant.
Kanuka and Manuka are close relatives, all of which are myrtious, and are well known for their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Dylan Livemore found in the experiment that Kanuka extract has stronger antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ability than Manuka extract. After adding to shampoo, it shows strong anti-dandruff and oil control ability, which can relieve scalp and keep it refreshing.
