About Us | Essence of Humanity | A Social Enterprise

What if your skincare products didn't just feel good but did good too? 

At Essence of Humanity, our mission is simple; kindness, to your skin, your environment and your world.

Kind to Your Skin 

Here at Essence of Humanity we are all about using natural ingredients to create products your skin will love. With ingredients like kiwifruit extract, baobab oil, and rooibos leaves, the Essence of Humanity products are rich in natural antioxidants, without any nasty chemicals or additives. Young or old, dry skin or oily, our range of deep cleansers, buttery moisturising creams, face oils and skin balms are the perfect addition to your beauty regime.

Kind to the world 

Essence of Humanity distributes 100% of its profits to Satinwood, a children's home in Miti Mingi village, Kenya, run by our charity partner So They Can

There, the children receive quality education, nutritious meals, medical care and get to engage in everyday activities that kids all over the world take for granted, like playing sport or doing arts and crafts.

Kind to the environment

The truth is that this earth is the only one we’ve got, so we have to treat it with kindness. That’s why all Essence of Humanity products are made from sustainable and ethically sourced ingredients and mixed up right here in New Zealand. Before we sell them, our products are tested on happy human volunteers who give us good, honest feedback. Finally, all Essence of Humanity packaging is 100% recyclable, which you can pop straight into the recycle bin once you've finished.
