We distil our own Mānuka oil that is 100% certified organic and naturally produced from wild plants on our farm. Our plants are harvested by hand, which allows us to select the best parts of the tree to create the finest quality organic Mānuka oil.
New Zealand’s leading organic certifier, Bio-Gro New Zealand, is our Organic Certifier of our Mānuka oil and includes the USDA Organic and IFOAM organic certification programmes. In fact, we are the first certified organic producers of Mānuka Oil in the world.
The Mānuka oil is then infused into our therapeutic skincare range, with other natural ingredients which compliment our oil to provide you with an effective natural product free from nasty chemicals.
Research shows that due to its antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, Mānuka oil can promote healthy skin and fight off any bacterial growth that is often the cause behind skin conditions.
