Aotea – Manuka Mask


Gold + Editor's Choice
Formulated from excellent, non-toxic ingredients. Made from 75% 500+ Active Manuka honey, combined with kawakawa and Manuka oils.
Aotea’s range of products is grown, harvested and formulated on their papakāinga (land) on Aotea (Great Barrier) using native flora and all-natural ingredients. Aotea is Māori-owned and deeply value its employees, ensuring there is diversity and strong renumeration in the functioning wānanga space (which means collaboration).
Aotea‘s manufacturing system is 100% solar-powered and practices water conservation through reticulation. All grey water is also used to irrigate their crops. The business extracts all oil onsite, grows and traditionally harvests its own flora and keep at least 1/3 of the honey in their beehives over the winter so the bees stay healthy.
Aotea provide job opportunities for their community by operating locally and on-site and have provided many scholarships for high school attendance. They actively keep Māori belief systems and history alive through regular journal entries and social media communications.

What our experts say...

A beautiful indulgent experience, slathering on this mask is like diving head first into a pot of freshly harvested Manuka honey. It warms the skin and leaves it fresh, juicy and vibrant. A wonderful example of a company embracing it’s cultural and local community, spreading awareness, goodwill and social responsibility. Love the concept of tikanga māori and educating the consumer about the Maori ways.

This is a wonderful mask that deeply hydrates the skin. It leaves the skin feeling soft and smoother after each use. A simple, natural and effective product. I love how the brand is influenced by the country’s cultural and historical ties to create ethical and natural skincare.

My new favourite mask! As someone with sensitive skin prone to redness, I find that most masks that offer any smoothing benefits also irritate my skin, but not this one. After using it my skin felt not only smoother and softer but also very calm without redness. I love that this brand is not only Māori owned and operated but that they bring those principles to every part of their business. I was also really impressed that they grow their own ingredients with such sustainable practices.

Containing 75% active Manuka honey, this mask is delightfully rich, scented and soothing. With so many anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, I have found my favourite time to use it is when my skin is breaking out. This mask just nips any redness in the bud and leaves my skin so smooth and hydrated. I love that all the ingredients are produced and grown sustainably on Aotea’s own land and harvested using traditional methods.
