What we put on our skin is ultimately absorbed into our body – which is why Aotea make their Mānuka Honey Day Cream with the most natural and simple restorative ingredients. In fact, the face cream is so natural its contents are actually safe to eat (although we wouldn’t recommend it). Honey holds a really high moisture content which is why it makes for a great ingredient in a daily moisturiser because it leaves your skin feeling hydrated for longer. Aotea is also big believers in the native flora of this country, which is why the anti-inflammatory kawakawa leaf and the anti-bacterial and super active mānuka honey are significant tenants in our face cream which leaves your skin super clean blemish free and feeling fresh.
#Why We Love Them
First and foremost because their products are simply divine. However, they have multiple awesome layers that we love. Inspired by mātauranga māori (māori knowledge), the native flora used (and their oils) all come from Aotea (Great Barrier Island) and are made by the team on their papakāinga (land) on the Island. It’s building community, knowledge and employment.
