    Factory Retail Store, Kerikeri: Living Nature Products Where They Come From

    by Kakapo2 Written May 20, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can purchase Living Nature products in many shops in New Zealand, especially the Life Pharmacies, but if you are in Kerikeri you could use your visit for a purchase at the factory retail store - so right where those beauty products come from.

    If you are not that far north but want to buy Living Nature products, go to the website. At the bottom of the page is a link "Store Location". Just type in where you are and you will get a list of shops which sell the products.

    What to buy: The special thing about Living Nature products is that they offer absolutely natural skincare and do not use synthetic preservatives or parabens. Still the products do not deteriorate thanks to the special containers that do not allow air to get inside.

    They build their success on the power of New Zealand plants, honeys and clays.

    For example, you will find a purifying skin cleanser with the main ingredient kumarahou which is also known as Bushman's Soap. I have experienced the effects of this plant on a nature trip on the Coromandel. You take the flowers of the kumarahou shrub, and rub them with water in your hands, and suddenly you produce a soapy foam. I really like this product.

    Another great product is the hydrating gel made of harakeke (flax) and manuka honey, which you use under the day or night cream.

    Like in not so natural and animal-tested skincare ranges Living Nature has series for all skin types, and also body and haircare, and products for men.

    The shop front was designed by famous Austrian architect who spent his last 20 years of his life in NZ. Otherwise the store sells NZ made souveniers.
