Melcare™ sources its manuka honey for medical use from Australian and New Zealand beekeepers. Honey from Eucalypt trees and Manuka (Leptospermum sp) shrubs is prepared to a pharmaceutical standard and combined with glucose and glycerine into a soothing syrup.

Natural orange oil along with clove and cinnamon oil compliment the honey and make for a pleasant tasting syrup without using artificial flavors or colours. The honey used in each batch of Family Dry Cough Syrup can be traced back to the individual beekeeping families who cared for the bee hives that produced the honey.
