Te Rongoā Māori: At Bio Whenua we love to incorporate the use of Aotearoa (New Zealand) native plant materials and extracts into our products. Organic Mānuka Hydrosol forms the base for this Cleanser and comes from the steam distillation of Mānuka plant material used to make Mānuka essential oil. The Mānuka hydrosol is the water left behind from the distillation process which now contains a myriad of beneficial natural organic compounds. The Mānuka hydrosol also helps give our Cleanser it’s light Mānuka aromatic undertones. The native Kawakawa plant has been used by Māori for many different cultural and therapeutic uses. This Kawakawa extract has been included as it has an anti-inflammatory effects that helps cleanse and soothe the skin.

Charitable Partnership – Protecting Biodiversity
We continue to look for new ways to promote sustainability through our business which is why we’re so excited about our partnership with The Abel Tasman Birdsong Trust! Their aim is to protect and enhance the biodiversity in the Abel Tasman National Park so that it can once again be filled with the wonderful sound of native birdsong.
From here on out, for every Bio Whenua product we sell we will make a donation towards their organization. So far they have administered over $1 million towards the national park in projects that include predator control, biodiversity restoration and the reintroduction of native birds. We look forward to hearing about their new projects and we hope you are as excited as we are about conserving the beautiful land we live on.
The Meaning of Bio Whenua
Our brand name Bio Whenua can be translated as Bio = Life and Whenua = Land. Combined together they encompass the Māori principles of Kaitiakitanga (Sustainability) and Mauri Ora (Good Health) which speak of Life and us as the living protectors that nurture the land and with it ourselves. Visually the top of our logo design represents the Kaitiaki (protector), instilling life into the Whenua (land) which is the bottom area.
