The pursuit of natural skincare


"When conventional methods didn't diminish the dermatitis on my arms, I tried Medica's Kawakawa Balm. It reduced the itchiness immediately and with use over several weeks, my dermatitis is almost gone. I would recommend Medica's product to others suffering from dermatitis."

"When my son got a bad nappy rash, the usual Sudocrem wasn’t touching it, so wanted something more natural to try.

I found the Kawakawa Balm so nice and velvety, very light and I didn’t need to use a lot to cover the rash. After using it multiple times a day for 2/3 days I found a huge difference, the blisters went down and it really dried out the rash to where I could then use a combination of the balm and a barrier cream to help with the healing.

After 4/5 days the rash had completely healed. This is now my go to rash cream whenever it flares up. I highly recommend this balm to anyone who’s LO are suffering nappy rash, it really worked for us. Thanks Debs for creating a lovely, affordable and natural balm."

"I wanted a product that was moisturising enough without leaving the skin feeling too greasy but also something natural that didn’t have any steroids. I’d heard Kawakawa was a really good healing product and really loved Medica’s Balm.

Through a combination of repeated application, and good diet, I managed to get my skin to heal, as well as keep the skin moist enough to stop the skin from cracking. I would highly recommend this product to others!"

"I used Medicia Kawakawa Balm on my son's mild eczema and it has helped with his flare ups. I am really looking forward to this winter and having the Kawakawa Balm on hand for his winter flare ups. So if you want to something natural and New Zealand made , totally recommend it!"
