Key Beneficial Qualities

Kumerahou Extract
Kumerahou was used topically in traditional Maori herbal medicine or Rongoa as a healing agent for wounds and abrasions. Kumerahou is rich in sapponins which produce a soapy lather when mixed with water, hence the plant's colloquial name ‘Gumdigger’s Soap’.

Olive Oil
Olive oil used in soap creates a rich and moisturizing lather. It’s great for people with dry and sensitive skin, because of its moisturizing compound.

Avocado Oil
Avocado oil is extremely rich in vitamins A, D, and E and is very moisturizing and softening for the skin. The oil has an extremely good nourishing compound, which makes it an ideal treatment for dehydrated, sun-damaged, and climate-damaged skin.

Rice Bran Oil
High in vitamins B & E and helps to reduce signs of aging while soothing and hydrating the skin. Plus, it helps to even out skin tone and texture.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil
The floral scent of this essential oil promotes feelings of relaxation, helps to restore balance, and brings a sense of stability.

Cedarwood Essential Oil
The woody outdoorsy scent of Cedarwood has a grounding effect to calm nervous tension, balance an upset nervous system and promote an open and positive mind.

Dried Kiwi seeds
The exfoliating compound in this bar is dried kiwi seed, providing a gentle scrub to get rid of dead skin cells.

Apply lather on wet skin and massage gently for several seconds to let its active benefits work into your skin, then rinse well.

Maker Profile

MARAMA

Marama is a boutique skincare brand where they mix aesthetic design with a love for nature. All their products are built up from high quality, natural ingredients, native to Aotearoa New Zealand, and handmade in small batches.

The first sketch of every product created in Marama's Botanical Studio always starts with an ingredient native to Aotearoa New Zealand. From there, they build on a purpose and create a recipe out of high quality, 100% plant-based ingredients - keeping in mind the traditional use of these ingredients and translating them into smart, sculptural designs.

Their soap bars are handmade according to the traditional cold-pressed technique and are then cured for several weeks. The botanical quality and scent in each of their products take you on a journey during your daily wellness ritual. Along with their purpose of cleaning, the soap bars are also used for their aromatherapy and healing substances. The absence of synthetic preservatives make the bars nourishing as it elevates their hydrating component.
