Hydrated skin is healthy skin. Our natural bioactives target your skin’s hydration levels by boosting water, preventing moisture loss, and keeping your complexion dewy fresh.

THE SCIENCE OF SKIN

What is healthy hydrated skin?

Plumped, fresh, and bouncy: that’s hydrated skin. Our skin contains a ready-made barrier, made up of dead skin cells (corneocytes) and fats (lipids), which form a seal to defend against pollutants and keep moisture levels intact. When this barrier dries out, the cells underneath can lose water and gradually shrivel, raisin-like, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and parched skin.

Hydration is essential for the health of every skin type – even oily. If your skin feels itchy, tight, has a dull appearance, and tends to wrinkle when you pinch it, there’s a high chance it’s dehydrated. Contrary to popular opinion, there is little evidence that drinking water can directly hydrate the skin, as the act of drinking water can’t penetrate the skin’s top layer (epidermis).

That’s where hydrating skincare, such as serums and moisturisers, play an important role in your regime. Look for formulations featuring a plethora of water-boosting natural skincare ingredients, such as the all-important humectant.

What is healthy, hydrated skin?

Contrary to popular opinion, there is little evidence that drinking water can directly hydrate the skin, as the act of drinking water can’t penetrate the skin’s top layer (epidermis). That’s where hydrating skincare comes in. Look for formulations featuring water-boosting natural skincare ingredients.

The science of humectants

Plant hyaluronic acid

Plant hyaluronic acid

POWERFUL HYDRATION MOLECULE

We utilise innovative new technology to produce high-quality hyaluronic acid that is plant-based and cruelty-free, using a common bacterium found in vegetables. The bacteria is collected and fed a sugar solution in the lab, which triggers fermentation. This fermenting process rapidly produces the hyaluronic acid we use in our hydrating skincare.

Mānuka honey

Mānuka honey

ANTI-BACTERIAL, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY & ANTIOXIDANT

Nature’s sweetest superfood, manuka honey contains a host of skin-enhancing properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial benefits. The key benefit for our hydrating skincare? Manuka honey is a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin.

Harakeke flax

Harakeke flax

NATIVE NEW ZEALAND BOTANICAL

Harakeke flax produces a cool, clear gel that is rich in omegas and natural plant sugars called polysaccharides, which help to enhance hydration and promote softer, fresher skin.

The science of humectants

Want to quench thirsty skin? Look to nature’s humectants. These skin-enhancing ingredients love water, drawing moisture into the top layer of skin (the stratum corneum) to keep it moisturised, fresh, plumped, and looking healthy. In skincare, they are best formulated with other hydration-enhancing ingredients to maximise their potential.

Plant hyaluronic acid

Powerful hydration molecule

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the human body, especially in the eyes, skin, and joints. It has powerful moisture-retaining properties – it can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! It is also viscoelastic, a unique consistency that both flows and stretches.

Historically, hyaluronic acid has been obtained from animal sources. We utilise innovative new technology to produce high-quality hyaluronic acid that is plant-based and cruelty-free, using a common bacterium found in vegetables. The bacteria is collected and fed a sugar solution in the lab, which triggers fermentation. This fermenting process rapidly produces the hyaluronic acid we use in our hydrating skincare.

Mānuka honey

Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory & antioxidant

Nature’s sweetest superfood, manuka honey contains a host of skin-enhancing properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial benefits. The key benefit for our hydrating skincare?

Manuka honey’s impressive humectant profile. Manuka honey assists with drawing moisture into the skin, delivering a fresh, clear, and youthful-looking visage whilst tending to blemishes and redness.

Harakeke flax

Native New Zealand botanical

A native New Zealand flax commonly found in lowland wetlands and coastal areas, the gel extracted from harakeke flax leaves has been used to treat burns, boils, wounds and skin disorders such as eczema. Harakeke produces a cool, clear gel that is rich in omegas and natural plant sugars called polysaccharides, which help to enhance hydration and promote softer, fresher skin.
