How We Work | Essence of Humanity | Natural Skincare & Social Business

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

We provide a natural skincare range that doesn’t only nourish your skin but also enriches the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. When you purchase an Essence of Humanity product, 100% of the profits are directly donated to Satinwood; a children's home in Miti Mingi village, Kenya, run by our charity partner So They Can.

There, your money will ensure children receive a quality education, nutritious meals, medical care and get to engage in everyday activities kids all over the world take for granted.

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.
