Members of the Schoolhouse Review Crew often refer to camping out by the mailbox or stalking the UPS truck as way of expressing excitement about an upcoming item for evaluation. Those delivery drivers may have been feeling some pressure as we recently awaited some pampering products from Koru Naturals.
“Koru” is the Maori word for a new, unfurled fern frond. It symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace to that New Zealand aboriginal culture. This single word reflects not only the origin of many of the company’s products, but their purpose as well. Since 2002, Koru Naturals has been offering products to protect skin and promote good health.
All reviewers received a bottle of Premium Grade Emu Oil. This hypoallergenic oil contains vitamins, minerals and Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Emu oil quickly penetrates the hair or skin for a moisturizing treatment, and yet it doesn’t clog pores. The oil is considered hypoallergenic (doesn’t cause reactions), but it should only be used on unbroken skin.
Reviewers also received one of the following items:
The balm is made with a combination of emu oil and lanolin. The healing and hydrating properties of both ingredients are why Koru Naturals promotes Koolpurrie for dry, discolored, calloused and cracked skin.
The lanolin comes packaged in the tubes you’ve come to expect for lip balms, but they contain no fragrances or other additives like petroleum that can actually dry out lips rather than moisturize.
Lanolin is a key ingredient in this skin conditioning cream, but there are other additives including a light fragrance. Koru Naturals recommends it for preventing diaper rash, but it can be used all over the face and body.
The Manuka evergreen is sometimes referred to as the New Zealand tea tree. In additional to being a source of essential oil, bees gather its nectar to make Manuka honey. Both are ingredients in this shampoo and conditioner set designed to rid your hair of impurities and leave it shiny.
