Product reviews from our experts…


Like many of Bio-First’s other products, this one comes in an airless pump, which I love to prevent bacterial contamination. This is especially important if you have a compromised skin barrier, which people with ultra-sensitive or sensitised skin have! The cream itself is really nice. I love seeing Aloe Vera as the first ingredient. It’s ultra calming and means you’re getting more actives for your money when water isn’t the first listed ingredient. Glycerin and Manuka Honey are next up on the list, with great humectant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. When I used this on my skin it disappeared quickly with a cooling, light texture and light moisturising effect that seemed to calm my complexion. It quelled some redness and itchiness I had on a wrist as well from an irritating accessory I’d worn. Overall a great quick topical that has moisturising benefits for irritated skin.

I also appreciate that they comply with a variety of international standards when it comes to the quality of their ingredients, which is a great first step, and they use lower-wasting shipping materials, including eco-tape. I’m glad to hear they’re exploring ways to incorporate post-consumer recycled plastics into their product packaging!

What I loved most about Bio-First Manuka Skin Saver is that the salve works. It is absolutely amazing and instantly soothed, nourishing my distressed, irritated, red, itchy or dry skin. I’d had a reaction to another product and this Beauty totally saved me. An excellent all-rounder and multi-use salve, great for grazes and burns (yes I have sons!) I even used it on my lips – Excellent product!

I am especially impressed by Bio-Firsts commitment to prioritising Australian local suppliers and companies for manufacturing, packaging, and marketing activities. A real home-grown Australian brand. I also love that they donate to breast cancer patients and can imagine this brand being a really welcome relief to so many of those patients.

An ultra fast acting nourishing and slight honey smelling balm that calms skin. I found you dont need to use much for it to work very well. Perfect for when your skin needs that extra boost of nourishment. I also appreciate that nature is at the centre of the ingredients and making of this product!
