Why we love native plants
We are passionate about sharing the goodness of Aotearoa's native plants with the world, particularly those suffering with skin issues and irritations. We believe that alongside the botanical qualities of these special plants, intention plays an important role. Our native plant ingredients are harvested with care, at special times of the Maramataka (the Māori lunar calendar), and karakia are said both at harvest and while the extracts are infusing, imbuing the extracts that are used with both aroha and tradition. Learn more about how we harvest here.
As you may know, we create regular limited time seasonal releases, and in the process of developing each of these, we discover and learn more about rongoā rākau - and we're absolutely loving that process.
We've launched seasonal products that employ the qualities of Kūmarahou, and Horopito, and they always sell out. Our latest obsession is angiangi (special lichens) that have incredible anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties and we're exploring its use in a new product, due out next year. Watch this space!
The Frankie range also showcases beautiful indigenous ingredients from around the world, like Australia's Kakadu Plum and Bakuchiol which was traditionally used in India and China.
With the Best of Natural Awards, HealthPost and Good are celebrating Aotearoa brands who are making positive, sustainable change.
