Kolei skincare brings the secret of New Zealdn herbal medicine to Australia and the streets of Newcastle. With an office on King Street, owner and founder, Leisha Antunovich inherited knowledge about Maori Rongoa traditional herbal medicine. Wanting to know more, Leisha began learning the art and science behind Te Ao Marori and transferred these ancient teachings into her professional life. Spending time working as a senior maori Social Worker/Practitioner, facilitator, trainer, lecturer, team leader, manager and consultant, Leisha came to realise that only were remedies such as narrative therapy, cultural therapy and family inclusive practice(s) important to the healing process, but so to was having access to clean, natural and organic skincare. Kolei’s skincare products come in a few different ranges including the Intimate Collection, Beauty Collection, Healing Collection and Mother & Baby Collection; each with a range of beautiful, safe and natural products to help with a range of needs. Their products only contain ingredients that you can read, and in fact pretty much all of them can also be digested, so you know there’s nothing nasty hidden inside. You can check out some of their products over on their Instagram @koleibotanical.
