Mānuka Water & Kawakawa Toner - Balancing and Soothing

A soothing and balancing toner that is formulated with Mānuka water and kawakawa water. The mildly astringent and PH balancing qualities of Mānuka water work to close the pores on your face, while also tightening and gently cleansing the skin. Further, the anti-inflammatory properties of the Kawakawa water reduces morning redness and calms the skin. This toner will close the pores and provide a healthy PH level, leaving your skin feeling fresh.
  • Made in New Zealand
  • Mildly astringent toner formulated to close the skin's pores, cleanse, and balance PH levels
  • Reduces redness, inflammation, and calms the skin
  • Suitable for sensitive and normal skin types
  • 100𝗆ℓ or 200𝗆ℓ

Directions:
After cleansing, splash toner onto a cotton pad and dab onto the face and neck, making sure to avoid the eye area. Apply face cream afterward.

Ingredients:

  • Mānuka Oil
  • Organic vegetable glycerin
  • Kawakawa Hydrosol
  • Mānuka Hydrosol

Science:
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.

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.
