SKIN HEALTH & VITALITY INGREDIENTS FROM NEW ZEALAND.
Embark on a journey to discover the hidden treasures of New Zealand’s untouched wilderness.
For over 80 million years, our isolated, predator free paradise has nurtured a diverse range of native flora unlike anywhere else in the world. Over time, these extraordinary plants have adapted to the local climate, especially the sun’s harsh UV rays and low levels of pollution, by producing a broad range of protective chemicals. The result is bioactive-rich leaves, fruits, seeds and other plant materials that help you unlock the secrets to natural skin health and vitality.
For example, our grape seeds contain as much as twice the level of polyphenolic antioxidants compared to grapes grown outside of New Zealand. New Zealand Kiwifruit skins have almost twice the level of antioxidant compounds compared to kiwifruit grown in the USA or Italy. New Zealand blackcurrants also contain higher levels of antioxidants than those grown elsewhere.
Manuka is part of the myrtle family which began 60 million years ago in the Paleocene era. There are over 3,300 different myrtle species that include pohutukawa, feijoa, tea tree, rose apple, and clove. Myrtles are woody with evergreen leaves that contain tiny sacs filled with essential oils. Manuka grows all over New Zealand and parts of Australia. Manuka trees found in different locations have a unique chemical identity or “chemotype”. Globally Unique, high triketone chemotype manuka is found only in some parts of New Zealand. High triketone manuka oil has powerful antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiaging and wound healing properties.
Our natural skin health and vitality products harness the extraordinary qualities of these and other hero ingredients, unveiling their remarkable benefits for your skin and overall health.
