A lightweight day cream formulated to nourish sensitive skin, soothe irritations and blemishes, whilst increasing hydration in the skin.

Mānuka Honey has a high moisture content, which can naturally draw moisture to the skin and will leave your skin feeling hydrated for longer.

This cream contains 800+ MGO Mānuka Honey, which naturally has potent anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties. The non-peroxide activity of the honey will help form a barrier, increasing moisture levels. Due to the reaction of glucose and oxygen molecules, it is able to reduce inflammation as well. We also use other oils infused with Kawakawa and Mānuka, with more restorative ingredients like Vitamin E Oil, Shea Butter, and Provitamin B5.
A range of New Zealand made health products inspired by traditional Māori herbal remedies and supported by scientific research.
Aotea was founded in 2017 – 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 their papakāinga (land).
What is important is 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.
