Known to act as a natural skin barrier to lock in moisture, foster cells & protect skin from damaging environmental factors.

Soothes & hydrates inflamed & infected skin. This oil when distilled is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial agent, and antiseptic. One of the complex characteristics of calendula oil is a compound called triterpenoid. Used topically to relieve dermatitis, eczema, rashes, and irritated dry skin.
• Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)
Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which are absorbed into the skin. This provides all the energy your skin needs to heal and maintain itself. Our bodies need adequate amounts of antioxidants. Coconut oil contains two antioxidants: ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid.
• Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis)
Jojoba’s oil molecular structure is very similar to that of sebum, the natural oil produced by our skin. The oil from the jojoba shrub is a wax ester, which means it’s very much like the natural oils our bodies produce. One of the best quality oils to use topically on skin. Absorbs easily for very dry skin.
• NZ Flaxseed Oil (Linum usitatissimum)
Contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids to calm skin. Many skin blemishes and itches are the direct cause of dry skin or skin lacking in natural oils. By taking this oil it will certainly help with acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and sunburn. The simple reason for this is that the essential fatty acids i.e omega-3 and omega-6 in flaxseed oil work as an anti-inflammatory and help protect the skin.
• NZ Cold-Pressed Olive Oil (Olea europaea L)
Olive oil is abundant in antioxidants including Vitamin A and E but the most potent compound is hydroxytyrosol. Hydroxytyrosol is a very rare but potent antioxidant found in olive oil that prevents free radical damage on skin cells. olive oil has very potent anti-inflammatory properties and also absorbs deeply into the skin and is suitable for all skin types. • Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can penetrate through layers of skin, assisting the body with the natural wound healing process. Vitamin E lubricates the skin and forms a protective layer that serves to keep free radicals away from wounds. Vitamin E also promotes collagen in the skin.

Testimonials: I suffer from contact irritant dermatitis on my hands and have tried many different products without much success. I am so glad to have discovered this Kawakawa & Manuka balm because it really is soothing, healing and protective. I have stopped using hydrocortisone ointment because I no longer need to. I also love the smell and texture of this balm and the fact that it is completely natural. (Megan, N)
I have used the Kawakawa balm on my psoriasis and also minor cuts etc., and have found it to be excellent. It decreases healing time and very much reduces the annoying itch you get with healing - and with psoriasis. I can't recommend this product more. (Deanna McCracken)
