Following a karakia or blessing, we handpick local Kawakawa leaves which are known for their healing properties to create this luxurious, whipped formula that is soft and easily absorbed. The freshly picked kawakawa leaves are then steeped for six hours to infuse their natural essence into a blend of natural moisturising and antioxidant oils that are known to soothe, repair and nourish your skin.
Below is the Karakia we recite before harvesting, the translation is:
Kawakawa originated From Io Matua Kore / A remedy for the heart / A remedy for the body / May healing begin / May life continue / Breathe
