Mamaku Gel benefits for skin
An extract pressed from a tree fern native to New Zealand, Mamaku Gel has been used by the Maori people for centuries to improve the look and feel of skin.
Because the gel is made mostly of water that’s given a beauty boost by numerous nutrients, Mamaku is especially effective at bringing natural hydration to skin, making it an effective emollient, especially when working in synergy with ingredients that lock in moisture for radiant, softer skin.
The Mamaku fern’s stems are packed with gel that is as close to an age-defying elixir as any skin care find from nature.
The gel not only helps skin cells rejuvenate by encouraging the production of collagen and elastin cells, it also offers rich moisture that soothes and softens parched skin.
The potent nutrients in Mamaku extract are powerful antioxidants that support the skin from signs of aging including dark spots from sun exposure, as well as fine lines and wrinkles, so skin appears more radiant, plump and pliable. Mamaku Gel is found in Xtend-Life’s Kanapa blend.
Uses of Mamaku Gel
In nature, Mamaku ferns grow tall enough that they create a protective canopy the prevents the sun from burning tender new shoots below. The ferns also feed the surrounding soil, so the plant has a rejuvenating effect on its environment.
The gel from this fantastic fern is equally beneficial.
Today, now that science has broken down the nutrient profile in Mamaku, it is used in hair care products and hand and body creams for rich moisture, but is still lightweight enough for facial lotions, eye creams and age defying skin care products.
Source and sustainability of Mamaku Gel
Mamaku extract is derived from the black fern, native to the North Island of New Zealand.
It is sourced by the plant-based company Meritelle, a subsidiary of Hibiscus Solutions, which uses eco-friendly practices to produce a wide range of botanical ingredients to enhance the effectiveness of skin care products.
