Kawakawa Balm NZ – healing natural salve
From the banks of the Kaukapakapa river, comes the kawakawa used in our balm.
Kawakawa is a traditional, Kiwi healing herb, used for centuries. Contains a mild antiseptic, which helps in treating minor skin issues.
Tamanu oil has a high content of fatty acids that contain antimicrobial, antibacterial, antioxidant, and antifungal properties.
We infuse kawakawa in jojoba oil for use in our products.
When using properly, our Kawakawa balm NZ may help you prevent skin eruptions and nappy rash.
Whenever you, or your child, have irritated or dry skin, bites, stings, scrapes, rashes, eczema, blisters, abrasions or sunburn, using our healing salve may accelerate the recovery process.
When applied, the balm forms an invisible, thin barrier on the skin, preventing evaporation of the moisture. This is to accelerate the natural repair process.
Our kawakawa salve is a hand-made using kawakawa that is sustainably harvested from our farm. It has no preservatives, colourants, or artificial chemicals.
How to use Kawakawa Balm NZ
Apply Kawakawa Balm 2-3 times a day at regular intervals to irritated skin and then daily as the skin begins to heal.
For prevention, use once a day.
A pea-size amount is enough for a 5-10 cm long skin part, depending on the width of the damaged area.
With gentle massage, without pressure, apply the balm and let it absorb into the skin.
