"In my studio I prefer the more considered steps of small production beauty. For example, the unique phyto-concentrate featured in my products has been grown and harvested then infused especially for my collection in Little River, South Island. This signature blend of Kawakawa, Calendula, Dandelion Leaf and Rosehip has been chosen by me for this range because of their complementary properties."
With the warmer days behind us, it’s time to focus on rejuvenating and restoring the skin in preparation for cooler temperatures.
As humidity levels drop, so do moisture levels in the skin, which means additional hydration is essential for skin health. Opt for ingredients packed with essential fatty acids and active hydrators to attract and retain moisture in the skin.

"To keep things simple, my approach is pared back and minimal, but consistent. I try to notice the changes in my skin and adjust my products to suit."
