Kūmarahou Wash - A Gentle, Healing Hand and Body Wash

A gentle wash containing Kūmarahou and Mānuka formulated to effectively clean without stripping the skin. Kūmarahou has a very high saponin content, which works as a surfactant and lowers the surface tension between the grime on your skin and the water you’re washing it off with, making the grime come off easily. Most conventional soaps and washes use chemicals to do this. 

Kūmarahou was traditionally referred to as 'gum diggers soap', as the gum diggers of the 1800s would use Kūmarahou and water to remove kauri gum or tree sap from their hands when they were working.

We have also included Mānuka Oil in our formulation as it is a powerful natural disinfectant. This hand and body wash is beautifully gentle, very healing, and 100% natural.

Handmade in small batches on Aotea. Product may vary slightly from batch to batch.

    Infused with antibacterial manuka oil and with an extra concentrated lather, thanks to the natural saponins of the Kūmarahou plant, this deliciously fresh smelling soap is powerful in its cleaning whilst being gentle on my skin. I love that the oils used and the Kūmarahou are grown on Aotea Island and the product is also manufactured here too.

    I love the scent of this soap; it has an almost gel-like consistency that is wonderful to take your time to wash your hands properly. It’s wonderful that the production of this soap supports the local community and that the ingredients are native to NZ.

    Using this product, my hands really do feel clean and are protected with antibacterial qualities. The smell is fresh and it creates a nice lather. I love that this is a 100% Māori- owned product, and that through the sales of it they can give back to their community
