Harakeke Seed Oil Night Cream

$45

Harakeke Seed Oil Night Cream - A 100% Natural Nourishing Night Cream

The key tenant in Aotea's restorative night cream is the harakeke seed (flaxseed) oil. Harakeke seeds are rich in omegas 3 and 6, which are very nourishing for the skin. Omega 3 in particular plays a crucial role in cell rejuvenation and restoration. All the ingredients in the Harakeke Night Cream are 100% natural, to the point where it is actually edible. Our theory is why put something in your body that you would never dream of eating? Research has shown that up to 70% of skincare products can potentially be absorbed into the bloodstream. Apply this cream every night and wake up to improved skin that looks and feels hydrated.

Science:
The seeds of the Phorium Tenax, known as Harakeke or New Zealand Flax, have super high omega 3, 6, and 9 content. They also contain another fatty amino acid called Linoleic Acid, which has shown to be deeply restorative to the skin. Further, its phytosterol and antioxidant content soak into the skin while you sleep, making it deeply nourishing. Another component our Harakeke Night Cream contains is kawakawa infused oil, allowing it to also be anti-inflammatory and ideal for red and sensitive skin.

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.
