How Natural Cosmetics Can Help Your Skin Thrive

We believe makeup should be so much more than just a cover up. That’s why our range of natural cosmetics is formulated with active botanical ingredients to work with your skin, providing beautiful colour and improving your skin health. There’s no need to compromise on quality - choose makeup with skincare benefits to help your skin thrive as you wear it.

Cosmetics to help your skin thrive
When formulating our cosmetics, we take the finest botanical ingredients and combine them with natural minerals to provide a beautiful finish. The result? Premium New Zealand made cosmetics which promotes healthy, radiant skin.

One of the hero ingredients found in many of our cosmetics is active Mānuka Honey. This famous New Zealand ‘liquid gold’ is rich in nutrients, vitamins, amino acids and minerals to feed, protect and renew skin. It also helps to draw in and retain moisture. Its unique 'Mānuka factors' assists in making it one of the most biologically active and beneficial honeys for the skin. You’ll find this glowing skin favourite in our foundations, tinted moisturisers, and even our mascara!

The wealth of natural oils, waxes and butters used our cosmetics to provide a luxurious boost of nourishment (without weighing skin down).  In our foundations, we use Macadamia, Jojoba and Avocado Oils to feed and soften skin. Our latest addition to our range, Pure Ivory Foundation, incorporates the ultra-hydrating skincare favourite Hyaluronic Acid. This can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, helping to plump and hydrate skin for a youthful glow.

The majority of our cosmetics contain antioxidant Vitamin E which helps to protect the lipid barrier of your skin. Everyday skin stressors can create small cracks in the skins barrier, which allow moisture to escape and leave skin feeling tight and dry. Vitamin E helps to keep your skins protective barrier intact, keeping lipids fresh in your skin.  Vitamin E also offers antioxidant benefits. It helps to neutralise skin aging free radicals. The antioxidant properties of vitamin E can also help to prevent blackheads by discouraging oil oxidation in the skin.

“I have tried other natural lipsticks and have been disappointed as I often find they have a grainy texture which can sometimes build up on the lips. However, Living Nature has really perfected their lipstick formula. It glides effortlessly onto your lips and is incredibly smooth to apply.” – Caitlin

“The best natural mascara! Over the years, I have tried to many natural mascaras. I am serious when I say after using this for 3 months I have found the one! It stays on all day, no flaking or smudging, so easy to remove with coconut oil. Cannot fault this mascara at all. So impressed with the ingredients - thank you thank you for creating such a wonderful safe product.” - Sammi
