Lucy O'BrienAfter a career in retail management and sales Lucy O’Brien set up Manukalife Life Ltd with her husband Howard in 2008, having discovered Apicare on a trip to New Zealand.  

‘’After suffering from dry sensitive skin for years it was wonderful to find a natural skin product that really helped improve skin quality whilst still feeling and smelling gorgeous.’’ 

After extensive research into the remarkable benefits of Manuka Honey, Lucy and Howard saw a great opportunity to bring these wonderful products to the UK, especially once they learned more about Honey and Herbs NZ, the ethical family business in New Zealand behind the Apicare brand. 

So, in 2008 Manukalife was set up as the exclusive distributor of Apicare in the UK and Ireland. 

The business is going from strength to strength, even in difficult trading times customers are looking for skin products that really work and that do not compromise on ingredients and integrity. 

Based in North Wales, Manukalife sells Apicare products to Independent shop owners and specialist e retailers such as Black and Brown all over the UK and Eire, as well as a having a successful online business.
