Lift the Lid on Nature and be Inspired
This incredible lush oil is rich in nutrients, which delivers a super-charged anti ageing dose of Vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, and antioxidants to boost and balance the health of your skin as it matures. A natural steroid, avocado oil triggers the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that help to protect your skin from premature ageing.
Avocado is also rich in omegas 3 and 9, which flood your skin with moisture, making it the perfect choice for dry or sensitive skin. Rich in palmitic acid (10%) and small amounts of stearic acid, the antimicrobial and hydrating properties help to enhance your protective barrier.
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 gently stimulating and lifting effect, resulting in a tightening feeling for firmer skin.
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.
Hibiscus flowers are a natural source of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). AHA’s can be helpful as gentle exfoliators and to clear pores promoting fresher, smoother-looking skin.
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 eczema, dermatitis and rosacea conditions. It creates a protective barrier, sealing in moisture to help support the active repair of your skin.
KIWI SEED OIL
This New Zealand super fruit is rich in Vitamin C, helps improve skin elasticity and reduces expression lines. Incredibly nourishing, it contains high concentrations of Linolenic (60%), Linoleic (20%), and Oleic (20%). When applied topically, these potent fatty acids integrate and improve the totality of your skin barrier, protecting against the ageing effects of inflammation and helping keep sensitive skin calm and conditioned. Kiwi seed also helps improve your skin’s appearance by lightening skin and reducing redness, age spots and freckling.
This is nature’s healer and protector with powerful antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Gathered from the manuka tree by honey bees, this unique superfood has numerous skin-healing benefits. It is the perfect choice for treating mature, dry skin as it is deeply nourishing and moisturising. Research has found it is up to 30 times more active than tea tree oil as an antimicrobial, antiseptic and antibacterial, making it an essential ingredient for combatting irritations and infections, including acne-causing bacteria that lead to breakouts.
Manuka honey helps to reduce oxidative stress from free radicals, healing damaged tissue and reversing some of the damage done by premature ageing.
We take extra care to offer cruelty-free natural products. To avoid contaminating the honey with pesticide residue, our responsible partners place the hives in remote regions where the bees can flourish as nature intended, which yields sustainably sourced honey.
It is colloquially known as the ‘vanishing’ oil due to its similarity to the fatty acid profile of your skin, which allows this intelligent oil to integrate with the tissues of your skin quickly.
Macadamia oil is a deeply moisturising, barrier-repairing oil prized for containing an impressive 22% palmitoleic acid, an omega that decreases in the skin as we age. It also contains oleic (60%), making it highly nourishing and replenishing, promoting your skin’s ability to repair and heal.
MAMAKU BLACK FERN
This native fern is an intriguingly natural elixir that yields a beautiful golden extract composed of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that boost healthy cell renewal, bringing new life to skin cells and rebuilding the skin’s structural integrity.
It also contains a cocktail of oligosaccharides and water-soluble polysaccharides that boost the hydration capacity of your skin by forming an interlocking fishnet-like matrix, which locks moisture against the skin to promote firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
This gorgeous red flower native to New Zealand yields a conditioning nectar that deeply moisturises and promotes cellular regeneration. The tree’s bark contains ellagic acid, a natural antioxidant that wards off premature ageing; that works with your skin to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible for as long as possible.
TEA TREE OIL
In vitro, studies have shown that cineole and terpinene – the main medicinal components of tea tree oil – inhibit the growth of many bacteria, fungi, and pathogens, including propionibacterium acnes. The topical application of this potent cruelty-free ingredient helps keep your skin clear and pores free from oil and debris, which can contribute to breakouts.
Totora is a powerful antioxidant, neutralising the free radicals linked to premature ageing.
Nature’s super antioxidant protects against oxidative stress, neutralising the free radicals that break down healthy skin cells, leading to premature ageing.
Totora also is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent, it has excellent anti-blemish properties, helping to neutralise gram-positive bacteria, including propionibacterium acne.
New Zealand sauvignon blanc grapes are known as Vitis vinifera, one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols (60-70%).
The skin and seeds of the grapes contain a mixture of complex molecules, including polyphenolic phytoalexin resveratrol and proanthocyanidins. These antioxidants work with your skin’s natural repair and protection mechanisms to address signs of stress and ageing.
Research has found that Vinanza extract protects your skin from melanoma and reduces the damage from UV exposure, such as increased pigmentation.
Wound healing is also strongly supported by applying Vinanza extract to your skin, as it accelerates fibroblast migration which is responsible for regeneration, rebuilding tissue and providing a dominant defence against resistant bacteria.
