from home made to global.
Pioneer in organic skincare
Living Nature is New Zealand’s original, certified natural skincare company. The company was founded in 1987 by Suzanne Hall, who was inspired by the healing properties of New Zealand native plants to remedy her own skin conditions. She started making her own skin care in the kitchen using native active ingredients grown around her.
Since then, Living Nature has grown into a global brand. All our certified natural skincare and most of our cosmetics are made at our purpose-built Kerikeri facility in the pristine Bay of Islands. From this base, we control every step of product development, formulation, testing, and filling.
New Zealand's best native ingredients
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.
We have harnessed the purifying, healing and nourishing power of New Zealand’s native botanicals, the following key ones of which we term our ‘hero ingredients’: Harakeke Flax Gel, Totarol, Manuka Honey, Manuka Oil, Hallo Clay, and Kelp. The properties of these plants are known for their healing, purifying and nourishing qualities. When combined, they create some of the safest, purest and most effective certified natural skincare in the world.
Awards & certifications
Living Nature choose to certify their products with globally recognised certifying bodies who set some of the most rigorous standards worldwide to ensure we deliver you the most natural, safe and sustainable products.
