About this product
Kūmarahou Soap - A Gentle, Healing Hand and Body Wash
Pomaderris Kumarahou, has a very high saponin content. Saponin is a surfactant, which means that it can foam into a lather, 100% naturally. Most soaps contain chemicals to do this. Kūmarahou was traditionally referred to as gum diggers soap, as the gum diggers of the 1800s would use kūmarahou and water to remove kauri gum or tree sap from their hands when they were working.
This soap is beautifully soft, very healing and 100% natural.
Aotea are committed to making functional and healing herbal health products. Taking inspiration from Rongoā Māori and scientific research into the actives of the flora to bring you a range of healing and vitality supporting products.
