Kawakawa leaves contain a component called myristicin which helps trigger the release of nitric oxide from cells. The release of nitric oxide is the body's anti-inflammatory response which means kawakawa aids the body in responding to inflammation. What this means is that the plant is generally soothing and helps with the reduction of blemishes, rashes & skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. The constituents found of mānuka are high in leptospermone, a compound found in the plant species leptosperum scoparium (New Zealand Mānuka). It nourishes your skin with long-chain fatty acids and helps maintain skin pH balance.
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.
