What Are The Benefits of Harakeke?
When talking about the benefits of Harakeke, two words come to mind: soothing and hydrating! The clear gel, extracted from the lower half of the Harakeke leaf, is packed with hydrating, skin-loving nutrients and beneficial plant sugars.
Harakeke is a secret weapon for those suffering from acne, too. Harakeke’s slight astringency is great for controlling breakouts and excess oil production without stripping the skin of its natural protective oils. Much like aloe vera, Harakeke gel cools and calms skin due to its potent skin-conditioning compounds. Humectant D-xylose and pH-balancing D-glucuronic acid work together to soothe, hydrate, and reduce redness in the skin. Sounds great, right? But that’s not all! Harakeke gel reduces inflammation in the skin, which is typically caused by irritating chemicals, environmental stressors and lack of sleep. The result? Skin that’s calm, hydrated, and less irritated.
