kawakawa skin lotion



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.

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.

Thank you so much

Hi my name is Emma
I had been given a kawakawa skin lotion, kawakawa soap and kawakawa elixir for my daughter who has very bad eczema. With in 1 week of using these products her skin has cleared and looks so much better. Just ordered more to help with her skin and will never use anything else again. Thank you so much for helping my daughter with her skin.

Best products I've used in my life

I suffer from acute skin allergies, particularly dermatitis. I can't use market products on my face. I recently tried your Kawakawa & Mānuka Skin Lotion and a skin flare up on my arms and hands was completely cleared in 3 days.
I have also used your Kawakawa Facial Crème and Kawakawa Soap. They are divine. Your products are the best I've used in my life.

Thank you for taking time to share Margie. We are all very proud. Ngā mihi atu.
