Welcome to our range of artisan skin care products and perfume oils. These products are handcrafted in our production studio in Hawke's Bay with the purest natural and organic ingredients we can find. We draw on centuries of herbal knowledge to carefully select every ingredient for its own unique beneficial properties. We do not use nasties like parabens, sulfates or artificial fragrances.
We absolutely love our range of Archeus face masks. They leave your skin feeling and looking fabulous. We learnt about using Matcha tea in face masks on one of our visits to Japan and have been fans ever since. We use certified organic Japanese ‘Matcha’ powder because it is packed full of great-skin-giving antioxidants and teamed it up with different clays to gently remove impurities from your skin. Wonderful organic certified Neem leaf powder gets to work on any problem areas, while goat’s milk and aloe vera give a little extra ‘smooth and soothe’ to the mask. Enjoy.
We have three Antioxidant Matcha Masks available: Normal skin, Sensitive skin and Oily skin.
Tip: If you really want to go for a serene and healing sense of ‘Inside Outside Beauty’, why not make yourself a bowl of our delicious premium organic ceremonial Matcha tea while you’ve got your face pack on.
Directions for use: Add 1-2 teaspoons of powder to a small bowl. Slowly add small amount of water and mix into a smooth paste (not too liquid) and apply a thick layer to clean face, avoiding eye area. Leave on until partially dry (about 5-7 minutes) and then remove with a damp cloth and warm water. Moisturise as usual. External application only.
Depending on your preferred consistency of your mask, you should get between 10-15 face masks out of one pack.
With Archeus, your matcha experience is even greener as a portion of proceeds from every Archeus Matcha product sold goes towards the Archeus Raukawa Tree Conservation and Restoration project.
