Handmade In Aotea

All Aotea products are handmade on Aotea (Great Barrier Island) New Zealand using native flora grown, harvested, extracted, and bottled by our team. Our ingredients are predominantly natural, with a focus on organic sources whenever feasible. While we prioritize organic ingredients, it's essential to acknowledge that not all can be certified organic due to being wild-harvested, reflecting the unique nature of our island-based production process.

A gentle wash to effectively cleanse your skin without stripping the natural barrier.

Most conventional soaps use chemicals to generate their foaming agents however Kūmarahou has a high saponin content ensuring a rich lather for the skin without irritations. 

Manuka removes impurities from the skin, whilst its active compounds offer lasting protection. Scientifically proven as being both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial, the use of Kumarahou and Manuka ensures the perfect balance of efficacy and care.

Rinse and be left with the awakening aroma of manuka perfectly complemented by the rich earthy scents of our kūmarahou.

Ingredients

Kūmarahou

The kūmarahou flowers contain saponins, which are natural surfactants that produce a foamy lather, which can gently cleanse your hands and body without using the harsh chemicals normally found in soaps to create foam.

Antimicrobial Antiseptic Anti-inflammatory Moisturising

Mānuka

Like our other inputs, our Mānuka oil is extracted onsite at our farm. The oil is used extensively in our range exhibiting anti-microbial and healing qualities. We also use Mānuka hydrosol which is a by-product of our distillation process that closes pores in the skin and is incredibly restorative.
