200ml glass bottle of a gentle, healing, hand & body wash.

With Kūmurahou and Mānuka, this has been formulated to effectively clean without stripping the skin.  

Kūmarahou has a very high saponin content, which works as a surfactant and lowers the surface tension between the grime on your skin and the water you’re washing it off with, making the grime come off easily. Most conventional soaps and washes use chemicals to do this. 
Kūmarahou was traditionally referred to as 'gum diggers soap', as the gum diggers of the 1800s would use Kūmarahou and water to remove kauri gum or tree sap from their hands when they were working.

Mānuka Oil is added to the wash as it is a powerful natural disinfectant. 

Suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.
