Brands of New Zealand
Wellbeing in New Zealand
Active lifestyles abound, with everything from high-end luxury destinations, like the much-awarded Aro-Ha adventure wellness retreat in mountainous Queenstown, to cool city fitness studios and beachside retreats. Healthy eating has always been a Kiwi way of life, but the global health food movement has seen a recent explosion in cutting-edge brands and destinations catering to raw food, detox, juicing, organic, vegan, mindful and paleo philosophies.
Beauty in New Zealand
Native, thermal, and medicinal Maori-origin ingredients give Kiwi brands a unique edge when it comes to skincare, and formulations are geared to shielding and repairing the skin from the country’s harsh elements. The Polynesian influence has made oil-based skincare a major trend here, with coconut, avocado, kiwifruit seed, and of course rosehip the favoured ingredients. Many of New Zealand’s organic beauty companies are now global brands, but niche ranges offer sophisticated formulations, cult ideas and locally-sourced actives.
Culture in New Zealand
The great outdoors is New Zealand’s driving force, and while the key cities here feature great food, music, art, fashion and retail destinations, it’s the beaches, bush and mountains that locals and tourists alike flock to. New Zealanders live year-round outdoor lifestyles, so products are made for sun, sea, sand and wind, with native ingredients high in antioxidants, hydrators and natural sunscreens.
