Since 1987 it's been a promise to provide you with the world's most natural, safe and effective skin care.
Living Nature's mission has remained unchanged for over 24 years:
"To create a sustainable, profitable, ecological, educational and inspirational business that impacts on the individual by promoting healthy vibrant skin; on the community by creating employment; on the country by featuring the uniqueness of our plant resources and earning export income; on the world by being a model of ethical, honourable business and solving inherent 21st century problems in a way that inspires the human spirit."
Our uniquely designed packaging combines calcium carbonate (chalk) and polypropylene, so it uses less energy and plastic to manufacture. We've taken care to produce the bottles and caps from the same material so they can be more easily recycled. They are also designed specifically to protect the contents from external contamination and contact with air.
The bottles are 100% free from Bisphenol-A (BPA) and Phthalates, and our paper, cartons and printing inks contain no dioxin or elemental chlorine.
Our commitment is to provide you with the most natural, safe and effective products to care for your skin and the planet:
Living Nature contains absolutely no synthetic ingredients or endocrine disruptors. Our full range is Certified Natural by BDIH Germany, and many of our products carry the Whole Foods Premium Body Care standard.
Our products are independently verified for safety, plus we have one of the best ratings in the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database. Our policy: if there is any doubt about the safety of an ingredient, we don’t use it.
Instead, we harness the incredible bioactive power of New Zealand’s native plants with their nourishing, purifying and healing skin benefits. Our highly effective energetic skincare is designed to enhance your skin’s own natural function. This efficacy is reviewed with ongoing independent testing.
Our Kerikeri facility uses only carbon-neutral hydro and wind energy, and filtered rainwater. Our packaging is fully recyclable, meets the highest EU environmental standards, and is 100% free from harmful phthalates and Bisphenol-A (BPA). Paper and cartons are sourced from renewable, managed forests and, like our inks, are free from dioxin and elemental chlorine. We use no animal products, other than humanely-obtained beeswax, honey and lactose. We will never test our products on animals.
Living Nature has over 120 different products crafted with care, from the best that nature can offer.
Living Nature Brand Ambassador and former Miss Universe, Lorraine Downes, on her journey to 100% natural
We believe that when it comes to beauty solutions nature has the best answers. Everything in nature is beautifully designed to work in a certain way. In this modern world it is so easy to forget that we are nature.
When developing our products, we look first at how nature intends things to work and then what combination of natural ingredients assist nature to work better and to counteract the stresses of our modern lifestyles.
Our products and brand are inspired by the remarkable healing properties of New Zealand’s native plants. The nature in New Zealand is truly remarkable with over 80 million years of complete geographic isolation. 85% of New Zealand's native plants are not found anywhere else in the world and the bio-activity of some of these ancient species is truly amazing.
