Living Nature is New Zealand's original, certified natural skincare company, founded in 1987 by Suzanne Hall, who was inspired by the healing properties of New Zealand native plants to remedy her own skin conditions.
All our certified natural skincare and most of our cosmetics are made at our purpose-built Kerikeri facility in the pristine Bay of Islands, where our dedicated and highly experienced staff is based and we control every step of product development, formulation, testing and filling. We are passionate about the benefits of natural skincare, and committed to our philosophy of 'nature works' as the basis for developing skincare and cosmetics products that work in harmony with our skin.
Living Nature has a strong base of New Zealand stockists and exports to 14 countries.
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.
They're chosen for powerful healing, purifying and nourishing qualities, and combined, they create some of the safest, purest and most effective certified natural skincare in the world.
We are proudly certified natural by BDIH of Germany, a globally recognised, independent auditing body.
Our mission has remained unchanged for more than 29 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."
