Kawakawa

Kawakawa (Macropiper Excelsum) would be, without doubt, the most renowned and recognised medicinal plant traditionally used by Māori. It can be found in abundance across the upper half of New Zealand’s South Island and all through the North Island.

Kawakawa is an extremely important plant in the Māori world and carries much mana (prestige). Māori have long had their own explanations for what scientists are now learning about the healing properties of kawakawa.

Kawakawa leaves contain a component called myristicin which helps trigger the release of nitric oxide from cells. Nitric oxide is the body’s anti-inflammatory response. So kawakawa supports and aids the body’s response to inflammation.

Mānuka

Mānuka (Leptospermum Scoparium) is also a renowned and recognised medicinal plant in New Zealand. Rich in tannins, flavonoids, triterpenes, and other compounds which give it strong antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Drawing on our traditional knowledge we incorporate modern techniques to create this natural product resulting in a Skin Lotion that suits our 21st century lifestyles.

We cannot always prevent environments that cause skin to dry and age, but we can provide a natural barrier to prevent our skin being subjected to those elements. Our Skin Lotion is a light and non-greasy blend that absorbs rapidly to keep your skin hydrated and nourished leaving you looking smoother, and firmer. When our skin feels fresh and vibrant, we tend to appear more uplifted. Our Kawakawa Skin Lotion blend has been developed to include skin remedial qualities too. A well rounded soft and subtle product that will nourish and heal your precious skin.

Bad reaction

Kia ora
I have been using this cream for over a week and it has not helped my daughter's skin I think it made it worser I know everyone has different skin but this cream did not help my daughter .

Kia ora Mikayla. We are disappointed to hear that our Kawakawa & Mānuka Skin Lotion has not helped your daughter's skin. You are correct when you say 'I know everyone has different skin'. Based on that fact, our products will work differently from person to person. We have three different types of skin care products and not knowing what skin condition your daughter has, it is difficult for us to determine if one of the others would have been a more appropriate selection. That said though, our skin lotion is considered as a general application and unless your daughter has an allergy to one of the ingredients, the outcome of her skin condition worsening should not occur. The worst outcome should be 'no improvement'. We are disheartened to learn that you feel our product has negatively affected your daughter's skin. As a team we are also disappointed to see a rating of 1 (one). We always hope that a review includes every part of your experience with Natures Therapeutics eg: the ordering experience, our shipping time etc. We do however thank you so much for taking time to provide a review. Each review is an opportunity for us to confirm we are meeting our goals or a lesson for us to learn so we can improve. No reira, e kore mutu ngā mihi e tuku ana atu, aroha atu, nā mātou i Natures Therapeutics.

It really does work

I have suffered my entire life with a skin condition that leaves my hands cracked and bleeding. When it flares up it even hurts just washing my hands and the bleeding mean i need to wear gloves to prevent getting blood on the bed sheets etc. My sister had some of this lotion from New Zealand and gave to me to try. I really did think "oh, just another product that won't work. Well how wrong was I. I am elated - within 1 day the bleeding had stopped and after 4 days my hands were completely healed. I have been using the lotion now every day since (6 months). During that time I have had 4 flare up but it never progressed to bleeding and the associated soreness I have experienced during my lifetime. I am 19 years old and so so thankful to my sister for showing me this lotion.

Thank you so much for your excellent review Matt. We appreciate the detail you have provided and I'm sure there are many others with the same condition that may see your review and try it for themselves. Once again, thank you from us here at Natures Therapeutics New Zealand.

Cancer chemotherapy side effects

I am 57 and live in Australia. I underwent 9 months of intense chemotherapy for breast cancer. My oncologist prepared me well and was very honest with what I could expect. My skin dried out like nothing I've experienced before, flaking and very uncomfortable. I was told about Natures Therapeutics and especially the kawakawa & manuka skin lotion. I was thrilled when my order arrived and immediately my skin started to respond positively. The lotion moisturised my skin instantly and it stayed hydrated for hours before i would re-apply. My chemotherapy is now over and for the second time in my life I have beaten cancer. I am thankful for many things, including having the skin lotion, which prevented adding dry, flaky and itchy skin to the list of things I had to endure. I totally recommend Natures Therapeutics and their products. I also use the facial creme, shampoo, conditioner and soap.
