Hero ingredients
  • mamaku, also known as New Zealand black fern, mamaku is a plant extract traditionally used by the Māori people as a medicine. When applied to the skin, it tightens and lifts the skin, while also offering intense hydration and promoting cell renewal, collagen production and optimal levels of elastin

  • New Zealand red seaweed, this sustainably harvested antioxidant is a superior alternative to hyaluronic acid. It reverses photo-ageing and combats damage sustained from exposure to free radicals. It also helps to hydrate the skin and lock in moisture

  • New Zealand pohutukawa, sustainably extracted from the iconic NZ ‘Christmas tree’, pohutukawa contains ellagic acid, which is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It soothes damaged, broken and irritated skin, while also working to reduce redness and offer deep moisturisation

  • gotu kola extract, this traditional herbal medicine is rich in amino acids, beta carotene and antioxidants. It boosts circulation, supports cell production and stimulates the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid synthesis to reverse premature ageing

  • blueberry oil, is upcycled and works as a powerful blue light defender. It offers natural protection from high energy visible light exposure (from the digital devices). Blueberry oil is also a natural source of pro retinol and it’s high in linoleic acid, which makes it a wonderfully nourishing anti-ageing ingredient
How to use
  • for optimal hydration, use daily in your morning and evening skincare regime

  • after cleansing, apply 2-4 drops of the serum to your skin, allowing it to absorb before finishing with a face oil

  • note: do not use Aquus in combination with products containing AHAs, BHAs or PHAs as these will reduce the effectiveness of the peptides in the formulation
Beauty tip
  • promotes collagen production: this unique formulation supports collagen production to improve the skin’s natural elasticity and tone. It leaves the skin looking and feeling smoother and more plumper, while also aiding in reducing the appearance of fine lines

  • brightens: is enriched with a complex profile of clinically proven botanical extracts to correct imperfections and visible signs of ageing. It brightens the skin to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, scarring and other imperfections.

  • plumps and hydrates: its potent formula works at a cellular level to hydrate the skin from within, resulting in a smoother and more youthful complexion. It diminishes fine lines and offers visible improvements from the first application.

  • blue light protection: this serum includes a specialised blue light defender, which is a naturally derived blend of blueberry oil and mamaku extract. It offers effective protection against high energy visible light exposure (from sources such as the sun, technology and digital devices). The defender contains the standardised levels of carotenoids and is a natural source of pro-retinol, meaning it aids in combating premature ageing and damage from pollution
