Aotea is home to an abundance of natural skincare and health care products sourced from our environment and made on the island by local entrepreneurs.

One of the by-products of our honey industry is beeswax, and this resource is used by many island natural beauty product makers. Most of these products are made from locally sourced plant derived ingredients.

You’ll find medicinal balms and remedies, soaps, moisturisers, facial oils and synergy blends – something for every stage of your regime.

These products are available from the shops, galleries and occasional markets. They make beautiful gifts and are an even better daily reminder of your blissful break to Aotea/Great Barrier Island.

If you can’t quite squeeze them into your luggage or don’t have the time for the mad dash to the community gallery before you board your flight home, you’ll find many of these products are also available online.
