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).

Harakeke Seed Oil Night Cream - A 100% Natural Nourishing Night Cream

The key tenant in our restorative night cream is the harakeke seed (flaxseed) oil. Harakeke seeds are rich in omegas 3 and 6, which are very nourishing for the skin Omega 3 in particular plays a crucial role in cell rejuvenation and restoration. All of the ingredients in our Harakeke Night Cream are 100% natural, to the point where it is actually edible. Our theory is why put something in your body that you would never dream of eating? Research has shown that up to 70% of skin care products can potentially be absorbed into the bloodstream. Apply this cream every night and wake up to improved skin that looks and feels hydrated.

Handmade in small batches on Aotea. Product may vary slightly from batch to batch.

  • for dry and normal skin types

Science

The seeds of the Phorium Tenax, known as Harakeke or New Zealand Flax, have super high omega 3, 6 and 9 content. They also contain another fatty amino acid called Linoleic Acid, which has shown to be deeply restorative to the skin. Further, its phytosterol and antioxidant content soak into the skin while you sleep, making it deeply nourishing. Another component our Harakeke Night Cream contains is kawakawa infused oil, allowing it to also be anti-inflammatory and ideal for red and sensitive skin.
