Mānuka Honey Foaming Cleanser #supportingwomen

  • $37.99

Made in Nelson


“This all natural, organic face cleanser is fantastic, and it is one of my all time favourite products for the shower. It produces generous suds for a really thorough, deep cleanse, but with no nasty synthetic Parabens or Sodium Lauryl Sulphates (SLS or SLES) typically used as a surfactant (suds generator) that are known to strip away the skin’s essential lipids and moisture.

The gentle gel texture and delicate meadow fragrance is transformative in restoring the face back to dewy, soft and clean. The Mānuka Honey from Bees Brilliance own hives is an extraordinary potent ingredient in healing and rehydating, supported by Aquaxyl™ - a natural derivative of two plant sugars, Glucose and Xylitol, scientifically proven to help increase water retention by improving the skin’s natural ability to retain water; and Kiwifruit Extract  - a gentle enzymatic activity to assist with lifting dead skin cells to reveal vibrant fresh skin.

This lovely cleanser leaves the skin hydrated and fresh after being washed. A little goes a long way, so this cleanser is also incredibly good value.”

Carolyn Managh, Small Marvels Curator



All Bees Brilliance products use honey sourced from locally cared-for honey bee colonies in Nelson, New Zealand. 

Maintaining and propagating flora that our bees really love helps support healthy pollinator populations. Planting wildflowers in your garden, at the office or school, are easy. Plus they’re particularly effective ways of helping keep our honey bees happy, healthy and doing the wonderful job we all take for granted. Bees Brilliance does their part in helping keep New Zealand's bee population alive and thriving, by promoting and selling Bee Blend Seed Bombs.



The Bees Brilliance brand was created in Brightwater, Nelson, NZ in 2015 by architectual designer, Julene Cropp, married to Matt Cropp, a 4th generation beekeeper. Julene's vision was to create good, natural skincare by women in the community, for women, to replace the multitude of products with complicated ingredients and synthetic fillers made in faceless factories.

Within a few short years, Bees Brilliance became a women's personal care manufacturing company. This means 90% of Bees Brilliance workers are women earning Living Wage upwards. Global research over the past decade has shown when women are paid a wage in a developing nation, they are more likely to spend it on feeding, clothing, educating and housing their children. When women are empowered children and communities thrive.

Bees Brilliance also actively supports the Nelson Women’s Refuge Centre.
