Dr Au Concentrates Retinol Serum, Level 1
Made in Christchurch
This light serum is naturally rich in avocado oil which has every nutrient your skin needs to give it a more youthful appearance. When combined with Moringa seed oil (both rich in Omega 3& 6) and retinol, you have ingredients that play an important role in the regeneration and health of our cells.
These bio-compatible nutrients restore balance and reduce redness. This is a dry oil with a hint of vanilla that absorbs perfectly to leave the skin soft with no oil residue. It is great for all skin types, including oily and problem skin, as it hydrates and repairs the skin whilst neutralizing and slowing down the production of sebum.
If the change of season has taken your skin by surprise and you need a little extra moisture, try mixing a few drops of this serum with a pea-sized amount of AM Day Moisturiser Serum on the back of your hand and then apply that to your face. This little cocktail of retinol and medical grade Mānuka honey deeply nourishes your skin while giving it long-lasting protection
Hero ingredients: Avocado oil, moringa oil, retinol & vanilla
Au Natural founders Tracy and Tony Ahern started this environmentally kind skinfood venture in 2014, with a deep respect for bees and their naturally derived contribution to beautiful, hydrated skin.
Living for just a short six weeks in the summer and four to six months in the winter, each bee only produces 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. Collectively, however, a hive makes enough honey to not only support itself over winter, but also to have a little extra, that beekeepers can harvest for food and of course for skincare.
Bees are an exceptionally important part of our ecosystem, and we need to look after them so you can rest assured that no bees are harmed in the making of Au Natural Skinfood products – in fact they are treated like rock stars and given the very best environment to live and thrive off.
Au Natural sources active 16+ Manuka honey from local apiaries who use ethical and sustainable practices. This means that hives are placed in native vegetation free of GMO’s and pesticides, and the beekeepers leave enough honey and pollen for the bees to feed on until the next season. Manuka honey harvesting must also be done without the use of synthetic repellents.
While honeybees may be small, they make an essential contribution to maintaining human health, and indeed, our survival. It is thought that one in three bites of food we eat depends on bees for its production, and their influence is spreading into health and skincare. Now is a perfect opportunity to plant something in your garden, or even in your kitchen or apartment, that will help to keep our honeybee population growing.
In 2019, Au Natural Skinfood partnered with the Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand.
"There have been many successes along our sustainability journey, but this could well be our most meaningful and the partnership was certainly not entered lightly. As we continue to grow we hope not only to support the Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand financially, but also to encourage our team and members to roll up their sleeves and plant more trees in New Zealand, educating our youth on sustainable living along the way."
