Most of our products are vegan. To find out which ones simply click on the search symbol on the top right corner of this page and type “vegan” into the field.
Our herbal healing salves and balms contain beeswax and some of our herbal health remedies contain honey.
Both products are from a trusted, local beekeeper we know personally and we know that his bees are looked after very well. No mass production, no mistreatment of queens or bees and no chemical Varroa treatments. Without trusted beekeepers our food supply in New Zealand would plummet. They are essential for the pollination of many fruiting plants and a wise management benefits the bees and us. With plenty of flowers around on Banks Peninsula and a good amount of Kanuka and Manuka trees, the bees are feasting, producing a surplus of honey.
Our trusted beekeeper only takes the surplus produced, leaving enough honey in the hives for the bees to overwinter. The bees are therefore much healthier because they haven’t been fed sugar water used in big commercial operations.
The honey is a blend containing clover, wildflowers, Kanuka and Manuka flowers. The honey has antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
Beeswax has rich amounts of vitamin A having a good effect on human skin health. It improves hydration to the skin and promotes cell regeneration. Beeswax will not “suffocate” the skin, but rather, allow it to breathe while still providing a protective barrier. When used in balms, beeswax creates a barrier, which helps to seal moisture into the skin.
"What I love about Korukai products is that I know I am buying top quality natural products, at a reasonable price, which taste and smell great. Having visited the farm, I am confident that what I order is completely organic. " JL
"I have very sensitive skin and sensitive sense of smell and there isnt one product that offends either. I really love the Avocado Face cream for use on every part of my body but particularly my face, the Kanuka hand cream at night and the lavender hand cream for during the day. The Injury Healing salve is like a miracle in a jar, I have had incredible results with it. And to top it off the personal customer service is 5 star." SK
"One of the best workshops i've been too. Practical learning and amazing tea time food. Cornelia's passion is just inspiring. Highly recommend her products (we use the Health Elixir weekly) and book yourself in to one of her workshops pronto!" TH
