Twenty botanicals, with extracts of sustainably harvested South Island native plants:  koromiko (willow-leaf hebe), Hebe salicifolia, and harakeke (Aotearoa New Zealand flax or kōrari, ‘inflorescence’), Phormium tenax.

Our native plant extracts:  Koromiko is a willowy plant with fragrant lilac-to-white flowers, known for its healing and skin-soothing properties.  Providing nectar for native butterflies, it flourishes amid the tussock and snow-grasses (Chionochloa sp.) of our Aotearoa New Zealand high country, mixing with alpine buttercups (Ranunculus sp.), spear grasses (Aciphylla sp.) and mountain flaxes (Phormium cookianum sp.) to create a deeply sensuous bouquet.

The tall sword-shaped leaves of harakeke are an iconic feature of our landscape.  With stems of up to four metres, tube-like flowers turning red in summer — full of nectar for native birds — this plant too is highly valued for its skin-enhancing properties.
