Science

The saponins in kūmarahou naturally clean skin. In the 19th century, bushmen found that when its flowers are rubbed with water they foam into natural lather, which they could use to clean the kauri gum off their skin. As a result kūmarahou is often nicknamed 'gum-diggers' or 'bushmans' soap. Kūmarahou is good for all-round health, containing valuable flavonoids promote digestive health. Quecetin helps seasonal health, addressing symptoms like congestion and inflammation. Mānuka honey in particular is uniquely antibacterial; the enzyme glucose oxidase reacts with the glucose in the mānuka honey and oxygen to produce hydrogen peroxide, which destroys bacteria and clears the skin. This means it has the capacity to fight harmful bacteria that can often lead to breakouts and blemishes which is why using mānuka honey regularly can be so beneficial. Furthermore, mānuka honey is also known to reduce inflammation and redness and has been used in treatment for things like rosacea. Mānuka honey is both preventative and restorative when used in skin treatment and has amazing pedigree in both instances.


Kawakawa leaves contain a component called myrsticin which helps trigger the release of nitric oxide from cells. The release of nitric oxcide is the body's anti-inflammatory response which means kawakawa aids the body in responding to inflammation. What this means is that the plant is generally soothing and helps with reduction of blemishes, rashes & skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. The constituents found of mānuka are high in leptospermone, a compound found in the plant species leptosperum scoparium (New Zealand Mānuka). It nourishes your skin with long chain fatty acids, and helps maintain skin pH balance.
