Aka Kim & Andi.
A husband and wife partnership, inspired by the natural riches of New Zealand, Australia and the islands of the South Pacific.
Have You Ever...
been somewhere that took your breath away, and made you want to change your life? A place so full of life and love that your first visit there felt like coming home?
The Cook Islands was that place for us. While on honeymoon on the beautiful island of Aitutaki, we were struck by the abundance of botanical produce growing wild and cared for. Wellness came naturally.
Returning home with a fresh vision, suddenly New Zealand and Australia's distinct landscapes and otherworldly native plants came to life.
And so started a journey to research and discover the amazing healthful properties of botanical extracts from Australia, New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific.
Immersing ourselves in...
formulating and trials, we studied plant extracts and oils from all over Australia, New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific.
Bio-dynamic farms in Marlborough, NZ, indigenous Australian producers in the Kimberley, and family run certified organic coconut plantations in Fiji were just some of the exquisite finds along the way. But great ingredients are only the start.
Blending and balancing the textures, aromas and properties took over 18 months. Friends and family were the willing guinea pigs for hundreds of test batches. Finally, we had a collection of organic and wild harvested skin care that we felt was, and still is...
Modern, Organic, Effective
We are a modern organic company with a focus on the positive, and we use organic ingredients for their efficacy, your wellness, and the future of the planet.
Conscious consumerism is fuelling a demand for products that respect the environment, fit with a modern lifestyle and allow people to feel great about themselves, and their heath. We live by this ethos and promise you that all of our products are made with a minimum 95% certified organic/organically grown, wild harvested and bio-dynamic ingredients, from select locations.
- PREMIUM -
We formulate using the utmost quality ingredients in abundance. Our base of oils (certified organic virgin coconut, olive and macadamia) are considered by others as luxury ingredients; for us they are the key foundation. We choose each ingredient for its specific contribution to our formulations, with an especial focus on unique and exotic extracts.
Australia has the world's largest land area dedicated to organic farming. Its geographic isolation means that the botanical produce grown there is unspoilt and highly active.
This is true of New Zealand and the islands of the South Pacific too. And by sourcing locally we get the freshest, most potent ingredients that thrive in their sometimes harsh native environments.
- KAKADU PLUM -
We champion this outstanding Australian native plant, the world's richest source of natural vitamin C.
Wild harvested by the Bardi people in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, the unique extraction process produces the most stable, potent form of natural vitamin C in the world (as proven by the Southern Cross University of Australia).
Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that plays a crucial role in helping your skin to produce collagen, as well as protecting it from further environmental damage.
We source our ingredients direct from the growers wherever possible, and from companies that work with native land owners. We also choose New Zealand producers for the majority of our packaging.
The exception to this rule is our exquisite new Miron violet glass bottles, made in The Netherlands. These are incomparable in terms of their ability to protect and enhance our rare and exotic concoctions.
- CRUELTY FREE -
In 2015 we received ongoing Cruelty Free status from Choose Cruelty Free Ltd. in Australia. This accreditation guarantees that we and our suppliers have never tested, and will never test on animals. Ever.
We support this accreditation by choosing to be palm oil free, to help prevent the truly appalling deforestation and subsequent destruction of Orangutan and other wildlife habitats.
Having researched extensively...
to find the best raw materials from the most sustainable small farms, growers and producers this side of the world, we've created an organic collection we're both very proud of.
We're a partnership that oversees all aspects of the creation, production and honest marketing of our skin care.
Lewin & Reilly is 100% us, for you; showcasing honesty, integrity and positivity with the ultimate respect for you; the consumer, and the earth.
We hope you'll love using the collection as part of your daily practice, as much as we love crafting them.
To your health.
