Known to Maori people for centuries for its therapeutic benefits, the mighty totara tree is a native New Zealand yew tree. The extract of totara we use is highly microbial so you can achieve super-clean skin, and antioxidant-rich to combat the free radicals that contribute to ageing. It is also used as a natural preservative for skincare products.
For your skin, it is:
- antibacterial and antimicrobial
- antioxidant-rich to neutralize free radicals
The torara tree was originally investigated for unique molecules because of its hard heartwood and increased resistance to rotting.
