Harakeke: 紐西蘭天然亞麻嘅滋潤 | Harakeke: NZ’s hydrating native flax

Harakeke係紐西蘭本地亞麻(Phormium tenax)毛利人嘅名。我哋好鍾意呢種本地種植嘅寶藏,所以用佢嚟做洗手同沐浴露中嘅主要成分。

傳統毛利文化中嘅Harakeke

Harakeke係紐西蘭最常見嘅亞麻,對毛利人非常重要,每個毛利村莊都有自己嘅種植園。佢哋會種植唔同嘅品種。唔同嘅品種中, 顏色、柔軟度、纖維強度同埋藥用特性都有分別。

但係長長葉子上有一塊清涼透明凝膠,喺傳統毛利人嘅醫學中好珍貴。凝膠可以治愈燒傷、割傷同皮膚感染,又可以食用佢嚟治療腹瀉。

HARAKEKE凝膠天然性質

透明嘅凝膠可以喺Harakeke葉嘅下半部分提取。呢種凝膠超級保濕,含有天然皮膚營養成分同埋稱為「多醣」嘅有益植物糖。 Harakeke嘅輕微澀性非常適合喺唔需要磨擦、刮洗同入侵皮膚嘅情況底下,壓抑暗瘡生長同埋控制多餘嘅油分。

利用強效嘅天然皮膚調理化合物,包括保濕劑D-木糖同平衡pH嘅D-葡萄醣醛酸,Harakeke凝膠可以好似蘆薈一樣冷卻同鎮定皮膚。佢可以自然舒緩同滋潤,同時減少發紅。提取物嘅柔軟特性可通過支持正常嘅細胞更新來改善皮膚外觀。

Harakeke令人感到難以置信嘅地方之一就係因為佢幫助皮膚健康嘅炎症管理,自然促進因為刺激、環境壓力同受外來傷害而受損皮膚嘅恢復進度。

喺身體同個人護理產品中使用HARAKEKE 嘅原因

Harakeke係我們喺ecostore洗手液同沐浴露系列中使用嘅成分,好處有舒緩同保濕。佢雖然可以補充自然水分,但對容易生粉刺嘅皮膚都有好處。佢具有溫和嘅抗菌作用,有助於減少遍布全身嘅斑點細菌。

為咗得到清新、溫同嘅清潔效果,我哋嘅每種pH平衡配方均係由植物成分混合而成,其中包括Harakeke,佢嘅提取物可以喺中紐西蘭北島可以持續咁種植同收穫。如果你身體容易過敏、有哮喘或者敏感皮膚,除咗可以喺天然精油香料產品度選擇,都可以喺我哋嘅防敏感系列中選擇無香料產品。

 

Harakeke is the Māori name for native New Zealand flax (Phormium tenax). We love this locally grown treasure, which is a key ingredient in our Hand and Body Washes.

HARAKEKE IN TRADITIONAL MĀORI CULTURE

Harakeke, New Zealand’s most common flax, was essential to Māori, with each village tending its own plantation. Different varieties were planted and harvested based on their colour, softness, fibre strength and medicinal properties.

But it was the cool, clear gel from the long, strappy leaves that was prized in traditional Māori medicine to heal burns, cuts and skin infections, and it was eaten to treat diarrhoea.

THE NATURAL PROPERTIES OF HARAKEKE GEL

A clear gel can be extracted from the lower half of the Harakeke leaf. This gel is super hydrating, packed with natural skin nutrients and beneficial plant sugars called polysaccharides. Harakeke’s slight astringency is great for controlling breakouts and excess oil production, without stripping, scrubbing or harsh detergents.

With potent active natural skin-conditioning compounds including humectant D-xylose, and pH-balancing D-glucuronic acid, Harakeke gel cools and calms skin in a similar way to aloe vera. It naturally soothes and hydrates, while reducing redness. The extract’s skin softening properties improve skin’s appearance by supporting normal cell turnover.

One of the reasons Harakeke feels so incredibly soothing is because it encourages healthy inflammation management. This naturally promotes recovery in skin damaged by irritation, environmental stresses and late nights.

WHY WE USE HARAKEKE IN OUR BODY WASH AND HAND WASH

Harakeke is the ingredient we use in ecostore Hand Wash and Body Wash ranges to make them extra soothing and hydrating. While it adds natural moisture, it’s also beneficial for acne-prone skin, with a gentle anti-microbial action that helps to reduce spot-causing bacteria all over the body.

For a fresh, gentle clean, each of our pH balanced formulations is made from a blend of plant-based ingredients that includes Harakeke extract, sustainably harvested in Northland. You can choose from natural essential oil fragrances or go fragrance free with our Ultra Sensitive range if you have allergies, asthma or sensitive skin.
