Koru represents the perpetual flow of regeneration but also acknowledges its beginning by gravitating inwards. In Te Mana heart it represents our continual search for improvement and advancement in modern skincare science while being mindful of our Tupuna (ancestors) and their traditional knowledge base. Koru shifts us to the point of origin, in order to benefit the skin with peerless Mana of Aotearoa’s land and marine botanicals.
Maui the mythical demi-god of Polynesia caught Aotearoa (New Zealand) with his fish hook and Māori soon populated the land. It is also significant that Aotearoa is from the Moana (Ocean) and so the fish hook symbolizes the link between Whenua (Land) – Moana (Ocean).
The Hei Matau is one of the most powerful protecting Māori symbols. Our hand picked ingredients and matchless skincare products are guarded by Hei Matau, to travel safe on the way to you, carrying native, artisan vitality and abundance of goods.
