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.

Manuka oil content kills bacteria and saponin content remove dirt
Pomaderris Kumarahou possesses a plant agent called Saponin. This plant agent is a natural surfactant, meaning it can be developed into a soapy lather. We do this but also infuse our own anti-bacterial manuka oil into the formulation. This makes for a super cleansing, 100% natural soap. It is effective at removing dirt and kills bacteria on the skin without breaking down the barrier of the skin and stripping it of its natural oils.
