The name Bio Whenua can be translated as bio (life) and whenua (land) was chosen by their creators Tremane Barr (Ngai Tahu) and Jytte Glintborg because it represents the blend of their whanau, both Māori and Pakeha. It also a reflection of their commitment to sustainability based on the Māori principles of kaitiakitanga (sustainability) and mauri ora (good health). Protecting the environment and all those that live on it are fundamental principles they embody in their products.
Out of their base in Christchurch, Tremane and Jytte celebrate the botanical heritage of Aotearoa by incorporating native extracts and only using Certified Organic and natural ingredients in the Bio Whenua skincare range which are designed to benefit you and honour the land we all live on.
