New Zealand Active Ingredients

AVOCADO

An incredible anti-ageing oil rich in nutrients, which delivers a super-charged dose of Omegas, Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, and antioxidants to boost and balance the health of sensitive skin as it matures.
It hydrates, increases cellular turnover, plumps and softens lines, and helps to heal sun damage and age spots. A natural steroid, Avocado Oil triggers the production of Collagen and Elastin; important proteins for protecting the skin from premature ageing.

 

BEE VENOM

Honey bee venom is used cosmetically to fool the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung with the toxin melittin. This causes the body to direct blood flow towards the area, and stimulates the production of the naturally-occurring chemicals Collagen and Elastin; providing a gentle stimulating and lifting effect, resulting in a tightening feeling for firmer skin.

 

HARAKEKE

Harakeke flax gel yields a cooling, soothing gel with antibacterial properties. Referred to as nature’s skin hydrator, it seals in moisture while feeding the skin with high quantities of nutrients and polysaccharides; delivering a deep release of nourishment to promote the appearance of youthful, intensely moisturised skin over time.

 

KAWA KAWA

Traditionally used for soothing skin rashes and insect bites, native Kawa kawa is famed for its potent anti inflammatory properties, making it an ideal treatment for conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and rosacea. It creates a barrier; sealing in moisture to help support the active repair of your skin.

 

KIWI SEED OIL

An extremely nourishing oil containing high concentrations of Linoleic acid – a fatty acid that, when applied topically, can integrate and improve the totality of the skin barrier. Helping to keep sensitive skin calm and conditioned, it protects against the ageing effects of inflammation.

 

ACTIVE MANUKA HONEY

Native Manuka honey is nature’s antioxidant; when applied topically, it helps to reduce oxidative stress from free radicals, healing damaged tissue and reversing some of the damage done by premature ageing. It is also a natural humectant, drawing vital moisture into the skin to hydrate, protect, and moisturise.

 

MACADAMIA OIL

This oil contains high levels of Omega 7 in the form of Palmitic acid – a natural oil produced by the skin to maintain moisture levels and protect the skin from premature ageing. It is also rich in phytosterols that help repair the skin barrier function.

 

MANUKA OIL

This is nature’s healer; a potent skin protector containing powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It works on the skin to combat skin irritations and infections, including acne-causing bacteria that lead to breakouts.

 

MAMAKU BLACK FERN

This bio-active extract was traditionally used for its powerful wound healing properties. Today, it is making its presence known in the field of cellular renewal for its skin regenerating and stimulating properties, and its ability to bring new life to skin cells.

 

POHUTUKAWA

Native to New Zealand, this tree yields a conditioning extract that deeply moisturises and promotes cellular regeneration. Containing natural antiseptic qualities, Pohutukawa works with your skin to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible, for as long as possible.

 

TOTORA

Totora is a powerful antioxidant, neutralising the free radicals that are linked to premature ageing. A broad spectrum antimicrobial and antioxidant agent, it has excellent anti-blemish properties; helping to neutralise gram-positive bacteria, including propionbacterium acne.

 

VINANZA EXTRACT

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc grapes deliver extremely high levels of polyphenolic antioxidants, which work with your skin’s natural repair and protection mechanisms to address the signs of stress and ageing; accelerating fibroblast migration, which is responsible for regeneration.
Vinanza grapes are also shown to decrease the melanin production that causes freckling and pigmentation, for the ultimate bright skin finish.
