This native tree of New Zealand is known to live up to 1000 years. After about 200 years of growth, it develops a strong anti-bacterial substance which acts as a defense mechanism to protect the tree. Developers have invented a process to capture these properties for use in cosmetics.
Totarol has no taste and very minimal aroma. The substance has been extensively tested at independent laboratories to demonstrate bioactivity, safety and product composition. In addition to Totarol’s potent anti-bacterial activity, it also possesses anti-oxidant and therapeutic properties.
