$60

The Aotea Hand & Body Care Pack contains:

1 x Kūmarahou Wash - A Gentle, Healing Hand and Body Wash 200𝗆ℓ
1 x Harakeke Seed Oil and Mānuka Water Hand & Body Cream 200𝗆ℓ

Kūmarahou Wash - A Gentle, Healing Hand and Body Wash
A gentle wash containing Kūmarahou and Mānuka was 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.
Mānuka oil has been included in this formulation as it is a powerful natural disinfectant. This hand and body wash is beautifully gentle, very healing, and 100% natural.

Maker Profile

Aotea

A range of New Zealand made health products inspired by traditional Māori herbal remedies and supported by scientific research.

About Aotea:

Aotea was founded in 2017. They are inspired by mātauranga māori (māori knowledge) and this knowledge manifests itself in their range of therapeutic skincare. Aotea is the māori name for Great Barrier Island and it is here where they are from and where they grow the native flora they use (and extract their oils) and spin these into the products in their range. This is all done by their team on our papakāinga (land).

What is important to them is that what they do brings opportunity to the community where they are based on Aotea. In light of which they have decided (despite the difficulty) to grow, extract and manufacture all the products rather than outsource this. Aotea is proud to say that for every year they have been in business they have provided scholarships to their rangatahi māori to attend high school and they are in the process of creating more jobs for whānau.

What is also important to Aotea is spearheading the science that will give credibility to the anecdotal history and knowledge māori have for the healing flora of Aotearoa. They now have a committed R&D team to determine innovative ways to not only extract some of the plant agents in the flora they use but also undertake clinical tests of these plant agents.
