Our Rakiura Seaweed Spa Range

The Rakiura Spa Range was designed with the idea to create a natural and organic skin care range which is high in detoxifying and hydrating properties – showcasing New Zealand seaweed.

From the beautiful waters of NZ the Macrocystis pyrifera seaweed has many outstanding properties. Rich in protein, vitamins and antioxidants with moisture-retaining properties, a purifying influence that helps draw out impurities. And the amino acids improve elasticity.

Along with essential oils specifically chosen for this range Mamaku (Black Fern) that promotes healthy cell renewal and Tiare (Tahitian Gardenia) great for regenerating, softening and hydrating the skin.
