One of the key ingredients is Epseama (Laminaria japonica) seaweed extract which provides multifunctional skin benefits and deserves its reputation as a holistic skin rejuvenator. The extract can help to correct age related spots while also lifting, firming and hydrating your skin. It’s been tested and proven to increase collagen levels and epidermis thickness while also preventing collagen degradation. It is also very rich in minerals, vitamins, and plant-based proteins. Combined with Dongbaek (Camellia) seed oil which has its own amazing antioxidant, anti-inflammation, anti-wrinkle and moisturising effects these two are a powerful force in rejuvenating, hydrating and protecting the skin.
In addition to this, we have upped the nutrient content with Sea Buckthorn and Prickly Pear oils. Sea Buckthorn is a berry that has an incredible array of benefits to your skin. Packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids, it boosts elasticity, reduces inflammation and firms. Prickly Pear on the other hand, is also incredibly rich in antioxidants that help protect against free radicals and signs of aging. It contains omega 6, 9, amino acids and vitamin K and E. What this means to you is that it restores elasticity, brightens complexion and deeply penetrates your skin without clogging pores.
All of this together creates a beautifully rich and nutrient packed creme, perfect for smoothing out wrinkles and nourishing your skin.

Two Main Active Ingredients
1. Seaweed Extract (Epseama) – Epigenetic Anti-Aging Skin Rejuvenator
Epseama is a seaweed extract from Geumil island in South Korea that is renowned for its anti-aging effects by helping to rejuvenate the skin so that it looks younger by removing wrinkles, age related spots and hydrating the skin. Epseama is packed full of minerals, plant-based proteins, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and fatty acids that are powerfully beneficial in nourishing the skin. Epseama is a holistic anti-ageing cosmeceutical that feeds the skin to boost collagen and promote firmness to give a youthful appearance. It has this effect by boosting the production of the RNA nc886 within the skin itself. The RNA nc886 has been recognised as a key regulator of skin aging processes. After 40 years of age the production of nc886 naturally decreases which allows skin roughness, wrinkles, loss of collagen and dehydration to increasingly occur.
Epseama has been proven in clinical trials to increase the production of nc886 naturally within the skin itself. These trials show that Epseama reduces the volume of wrinkles by 19% and the roughness of wrinkles by 10% in only 4 weeks. Unwanted spots decreased by 10% as well and skin hydration improved by 14% in the same 4 week period. Epseama even received the 2nd place prize in the highly sought after BSB Innovation Awards in the category Cosmetic actives and naturals – anti-ageing.
2. Dongbaek – Anti-Wrinkle & Anti-Inflammation
Dongbaek is a special species of Camellia that comes from the South Korean island of Jeju often call ed the island of Camellia trees. Dongbaek oil is packed with beneficial Linoleic, Oleic, Palmitic and Stearic acids. Dongbaek oil has been clinically proven to have incredible anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory powers that help moisturise the skin and visibly reduce the signs of wrinkles.

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 the biodiversity it sustains. Visually the top of our logo design represents the Kaitiaki (protector), instilling life into the Whenua (land) which is the bottom area.
