More about Nurture skincare & ingredients

Skincare that captures the essence of ancient beauty secrets - milk & honey - Nurture’s key ingredients combine the power of nature’s own ingredients.


Nature’s superfood designed to nourish newborn mammals, Colostrum is a nutrient-rich moisturising ingredient that feeds your skin, supporting the production of collagen and elastin, promoting firm, healthy skin while minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Nurture Skincare combines the ancient beauty secrets of milk and honey with nature’s powerful ingredients. Colostrum was designed by nature to boost new life and it is these beneficial factors that have now been applied to our skincare science. Colostrum is acknowledged as one of nature’s miracle skin foods. 

Colostrum is defined as the first single milking after a mammal is born. Colostrum harvested from this first milking is full of rich nutrients, immune and growth factors, vital for an offspring’s early survival, health and wellbeing. Scientific research reveals that dairy colostrum is four times richer in immune and growth-boosting factors than human colostrum. 

Medical research has found that colostrum is one of the most natural skin regenerators for human skin, based on its concentration of rich nutrients. Skincare research has also found powerful natural emollient factors in colostrum. These combined properties, when applied to skincare, not only help to repair and renew skin but also help to soften and smooth it. 

Nurture uses pure New Zealand dairy colostrum in its skincare formulations. Dairy colostrum is considered among the purest and most powerful in the world. Its strength, added biological activity and higher consistency levels, are a result of New Zealand’s pristine, clean and green environment, its natural pasture feed farming practices 
and its strict, regulated product production processes. 

Nurture uses colostrum and active manuka honey to stimulate skin cell repair and renewal, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A skincare regime designed to give you beautiful, younger looking skin.


This rich, precious lipid acts like those found in your own skin, making it easily absorbed for deep, long-lasting moisturisation and protection. Sphingolipid also contains a precursor to the skin’s building block, Ceramide. This prevents dehydration by locking in moisture, for healthy and rejuvenated skin.

Our skin’s appearance can be affected by genetics, health, lifestyle, environmental factors, age and of course care. Without care, skin as it ages can become dehydrated, dry and lifeless resulting in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Sphingolipid is an active lipid which also contains Ceramides. It is a rich, precious lipid and is used in skincare for deep, long-lasting moisturisation and protection.

Skin lipids are one of nature’s ways for the skin to control microbial infections and maintain hydration levels. Ceramides are the skin’s building blocks and hold skin cells together. The Sphingolipids used in Nurture act like those found in your own skin and this makes it easily absorbed. The Sphingolipids used in Nurture’s colostrum based skincare are derived from colostrum.

Unichondrin ATP, an active agent, has been shown to improve the skin topography, helping to diminish the appearance of lines, reduce wrinkle depth, wrinkle density, length and roughness.

Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A) has natural properties that counteract skin inflammations, increase blood flow to the skin, stimulate and regulate skin cell regeneration. It also blocks the absorption of harmful UVA and UVB rays, protects skin cells from damage caused by free radicals and has skin nourishing properties.
