Aotea - Harakeke Seed Oil & Mānuka Water Hand & Body Cream
Harakeke Seed Oil & Mānuka Water Hand & Body Cream
A rich and nourishing hand and body cream designed to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. The hero ingredient is Harakeke Seed Oil, which is rich in omegas 3, 6 and 9 and also has high linoleic content, an amino acid that is incredibly nourishing for the skin. Formulated with Mānuka water, this hand and body lotion also balances the PH levels in the skin, closes the pores, and gently kills bacteria.
Handmade in small batches on Aotea. Product may vary slightly from batch to batch.

Use morning and evening after showering. Dispense 1-2 pumps and massage into freshly cleaned skin, concentrating on dry areas. For hands, use after washing and dispense 1 pump and massage.
Ingredients in the seed oil include linoleic acid, Phyosetrols and omega 3 omega 6, which are fatty acids. In additional to being edible, flax seed oil contributes to skin health. Linoleic acid is nature's great moisturiser. Phytosterols reduce redness and irritation, and omega 3 and 6 have antioxidant potential. Further, omega 6 will work together with oleic acids to speed cell turnover.

Aotea was founded in 2017. We are inspired by mātauranga māori (māori knowledge) and this knowledge manifests itself in our range of therapeutic skincare. Aotea is the māori name for Great Barrier Island and it is here where we are from and where we grow the native flora we use (and extract their oils) and spin these into the products in our range. This is all done by our team on our papakāinga (land).
