Since ancient times women have understood the benefits of lavishly applying seaweed to their skin, trusting its richness and purity to restore, protect and enhance delicate facial tissue. But in an increasingly polluted world they have come to distrust seaweed contaminated with industrial waste, heavy metals and radioactive materials. They desire skincare products sourced only from plants that grow in the purest of water, gently extracted and carefully concentrated.
That’s New Zealand Secret’s Wakame
Independent American laboratory tests have shown that New Zealand Secret’s Wakame is purer than any other commercially produced seaweed, so we treat this natural wonder with the respect it deserves. We harvest the soft fronds from the pristine waters and pollution-free atmosphere of New Zealand’s Tasman region. We cold-press them to gather their rich goodness. We then sensitively blend them, using clear, pure water that melts into local lakes from ancient glaciers. And we enhance their effectiveness even further by softly adding selected natural ingredients with proven rejuvenating properties.
New Zealand Secret has exclusive rights to this laboratory-tested, sustainably harvested, pure, concentrated, natural wonder.
In a pristine New Zealand national park, the Blue Lake – also known as Rotomairewhenua – holds the title of the world’s clearest lake.
New Zealand Secret uses supply of this purest water on the planet from a 26,000-year-old Artesian spring that’s rich in naturally occurring minerals and electrolytes.
Trapped between the layers of compressed rocks, our water was protected from bacteria and other toxins. Frozen in the last ice age, before the first human settlements, our water has not been subject to contamination from by acid rain, waste or other human-induced pollution.
KIWI FRUIT EXTRACT
Kiwi fruit is rich in flavonoids, carotenoids and phytonutrients that have demonstrated antioxidant activity and give it a remarkable ability to protect DNA in the nucleus of human cells from oxygen-related damage.
New Zealand Kiwifruit skins have almost twice the level of antioxidants compared to kiwifruit grown in the USA or Italy. And the skin which we source from sustainable growers, is loaded with even more fibre and vitamin C than the fruit inside.
The percentages of kiwifruit skin and the way it has been harvested is unique to New Zealand Secret in order to keep the highest antioxidant activity and anti-aging properties.
SAUVIGNON BLANC EXTRACT
New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc seeds and skins contain up to twice the level of polyphenolic antioxidant compounds as grapes grown outside New Zealand, and 50 times more Vitamin E – which helps prevent invasive UV damage. They also contain fat-and-watersoluble phenol anthocyanins, for lightening the skin.
New Zealand grown grape seeds are highly bioactive and contain as much as twice the level of polyphenolic antioxidant compounds as grapes grown elsewhere in the world. This allows us to produce extracts with significantly concentrated levels of bioactivity. New Zealand’s intense sunlight and low levels of pollution force our plants to work overtime to protect fruit from the sun. And because we use a GMO free by-product of sustainable wine making, at the same time we’re reducing waste.
