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.

Sphaera creates products inspired by the everyday rituals of bathing and cleansing, and the opportunities these afford for quiet moments of self-care. Sphaera was founded in 2015 by visual artist and complementary health practitioner Ali Johnson. At its core is a studio practice and approach to making that is both intuitive and thoughtfully researched. Crafting a soap formula for Ali is a science of balance and a careful composition of harmonious elements.

Each of the Sphaera bars are designed to respond to a particular space, use or skin type using pure plant oils, butters, milks and naturally occurring clays. From her Wellington studio, Ali blends botanical perfumes of pure essential oils using traditional perfumery techniques to create unique scents that mirror each bar’s skincare and therapeutic purpose. These soaps are entirely natural - organic where possible - cruelty free and vegan.

The Sphaera studio practice and packaging employs a sustainable and minimal impact and locally sourced materials. Sphaera offers simple, utilitarian objects for everyday use with accessible depth and purpose.
