Living Nature is New Zealand's original, certified natural skincare company, founded in 1987 by Suzanne Hall, who was inspired by the healing properties of New Zealand native plants to remedy her own skin conditions.
All Living Nature certified natural skincare and most of the cosmetics are made at Living Nature's purpose-built Kerikeri facility in the pristine Bay of Islands, where dedicated and highly experienced staff is based, controling every step of product development, formulation, testing and filling. Living Nature is passionate about the benefits of natural skincare, and committed to the philosophy of 'nature works' as the basis for developing skincare and cosmetics products that work in harmony with our skin.
Living Nature is firmly committed to certified natural skincare, free from any potentially harmful synthetic preservatives (such as parabens or phenoxyethanol). Living Nature uses some of the world's most remarkable ingredients, but what is not used is just as important. If there's any question about an ingredient's safety, Living Nature simply will not use it.
Geographically isolated for more than 80 million years, New Zealand has developed a natural landscape unlike anywhere else on earth. More than 80% of New Zealand's native plants are indigenous and many have remarkable bioactive properties. Sourced from forests, lands and seas, Living Nature's active ingredients come from the most potent of these unique plants. They're chosen for powerful healing, purifying and nourishing qualities, and combined, they create some of the safest, purest and most effective certified natural skincare in the world.
The astonishing properties of these plants work with your skin's natural function to protect, repair and nourish, without the side effects of harsh, dangerous or damaging chemicals. But we don't stop there. Every harvest of our raw ingredients, and every product batch is rigorously tested for purity and safety. Our products reflect the country from which they were developed - pure and potent, Living Nature is made of New Zealand.
Living Nature packaging is recyclable, and free from Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates. Paper and cartons are sourced from renewable, managed forests and, like our inks, are free from dioxin and elemental chlorine.
The Kerikeri facility uses energy from a New Zealand power supplier that generates renewable energy from wind and water (hydro) and we harvest our own filtered rainwater.
Living Nature use no animal products, other than beeswax, honey and lactose obtained using industry best-practice methods.
Living Nature will never test their products on animals.
