Cape Chestnut Oil


Nature’s answer to SPF,cape chestnut oil (also known as yangu oil), has long been used in traditional African skin care.Originating from Kenya, the Massai tribe have long used this miracle oil for sun protection and a plethora of other skin benefits, in even the most extreme conditions.

Rich in essential fatty acids,Cape Chestnut Oil has an incredibleability to replenish the lipid barrier in the skin, which not only protects the skin from the outside in, but also locks in moisture and helps prevent water loss which can lead to dry, dehydrated skin and signs of aging. Not only is this remarkable oil very high in essential fatty acids but it is also rich in antioxidants, which help to protect against free radicals and environmental stressors including sun damage.

Found in our manuka honey moisturiser,it provides superior daily protection and moisturisation to help nourish and soothe dry, damaged skin. 




A luxurious gel-like nectar, Harakeke is a New Zealand flaxpacked with linoleic acid, which boosts the skin's barrier layer, helping to seal in natural moisture.

The Maori of New Zealand have been harvesting this precious plant for decades – you can think of it like New Zealand’s answer to aloe vera for the skin, with added benefits.As well as a whole host of acids to help lock in hydration, Harakeke also containsphytosterols which are known to soothe skin and stimulate healthy cell renewal, as well asantioxidants to help protect and defend from environmental aggressors.

The mild astringency of this gel helps control oil over-production which, coupled with a natural antimicrobial action, makes it an effective defence against breakouts.

A key ingredient in our deeply moisturising day créme, it helps to promote a healthy skin appearance, reduce puffiness, soothe and hydrate.


Pohutakawa extract

You’ll find this little bit of New Zealand magic in all three of our natural skincare products.

A red-flowered tree indigenous to New Zealand, Pohutukawa is also known as the 'New Zealand Christmas Tree'. Packed with Ellagic acid, a powerful antixoxidant, Pohutukawa helps to reduce inflammation and promote cell regeneration, and can even help with damage caused by sun overexposure.
