At Scenturie we make award-winning natural skincare that is gentle and safe to use on all skin types. Our philosophy is simple: To create premium natural beauty products that respect our planet, its resources, and each other.
All the ingredients in our natural skincare products are plant-based, nutrient-rich, and ethically sourced. We avoid synthetic chemicals, known irritants, and synthetic fragrances, inviting you to enjoy the subtle fragrance of unrefined plant oils and essential oils, the way nature intended them to smell.
Scenturie is…a scent to remember…
We are proud to be one of the only New Zealand Skincare Companies whose products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free, ethically sourced, backed by science, and packaged in eco-friendly, reusable, and recyclable amber glass – not plastic!
We also believe in supporting local because our people and their livelihoods matter. All our processes, from raw material selection to packaging, are sourced locally where possible.
Our logo is a green circle, which represents our planet, cradled by two fronds which represent earth’s flora. It symbolises how life on earth is supported by the balance of nature.

Three things we are really passionate about…
Scenturie was born out of a deep concern over the amount of harmful chemicals that are packed into skincare products, and absorbed by our bodies. Research has proven how many chemicals, commonly used in skincare products and cosmetics, are harmful to our health, to nature, and to our planet.
We believe in informing and empowering you to make the best choice for your body and your environment. Every ingredient we use in our natural skincare products is listed on our website and product labels. You can read more about our ingredients HERE.
To support you to know more, we regularly share up-to-date knowledge on the ingredients in our natural skincare products, why we use them, and what you should avoid. Check out our latest blog on “Why Natural Skincare is Best”.
100% VEGAN & CRUELTY-FREE
Scenturie natural skincare products are completely vegan. That means we use NO animal products or animal by-products ever in our products. No honey, no milk, no silk. Our natural skincare is also cruelty-free meaning none of our products, or the ingredients we use, are tested on animals. Learn more HERE.
While testing cosmetics on animals is now prohibited in Aotearoa, cosmetics tested on animals can still be imported from overseas. Sadly, some of the biggest and most well-known skincare and cosmetic brands currently pay for animal testing in China, where cruel experiments on animals are required for cosmetics to be imported and sold there.
We are a proud supporter of NZAVS, a wonderful non-profit organisation, whose aim is to end animal experimentation and the harmful use of animals for research, testing, and teaching in New Zealand.
TAKING CARE OF OUR PLANET
You care about the world we live in and so do we! Climate change is real and the world is waking up to the fact that we have become the greatest threat to the health of our planet. Every purchase that we make has an impact on our environment and ultimately on the future of our planet.
We are doing our best to minimise the use of plastic throughout our ranges. Our natural skincare products are packaged in recyclable amber glass jars and bottles, and aluminium lids.
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable skincare packaging and reducing waste, we offer a Returnable Product Packaging Service. You can return your empty skincare vessels to us where they will be sterilised and reused, in exchange for Eco-points. This enables a single jar to be used more than once, reducing the amount of raw materials and energy needed to produce new jars.
