New Zealand olive oil, infused with Kawakawa. A small tree with heart-shaped leaves endemic to New Zealand, Kawakawa is known as the pharmacy of the forest due to its many medicinal applications, internal and external. It has powerful anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial qualities and soothes the skin. Kawakawa is harvested with respect according to Tikanga Maori (customary protocol) of Rongoa Maori (traditional Maori medicine). Activated charcoal draws impurities away gently from the skin, providing a deep, gentle cleanse without drying.

About Sphaera Soap
The soap is made by Wellington maker Ali Johnson using the ‘cold process’ method - blended in small batches, poured, hand cut and air-cured for several weeks. This traditional technique yields a true soap, preserving the components’ gentle cleansing and moisturising properties.
Sphaera is handmade in very small batches in Wellington, New Zealand. Each bar is a thoughtful composition of natural ingredients, carefully designed for a particular use or skin type using pure plant oils, butters, milks and naturally occurring fine clays.
Sphaera soap is inspired by the everyday rituals of bathing and cleansing, and the opportunities these afford for quiet moments of self-care.
Each Sphaera soap has a custom botanical perfume blend composed of pure essential oils. Developed using traditional perfumery techniques these unique scents are carefully blended for a balanced profile to mirror each bar’s skincare and therapeutic purpose.
The cube shape ensures less surface area remains in contact with water, making for a longer lasting bar.
Sphaera soap bars are all natural, sustainably produced and organic where possible. Our studio practice and packaging employs sustainable, minimal impact and locally sourced materials. Sphaera products are all cruelty free and vegan.
