Matariki is a time of reflection in Maori culture and occurs when the Pleiades star cluster becomes visible in the Southern hemisphere. This stunning soap is a pure coconut oil soap made with activated charcoal and ultramarine blue for the night sky with added New Zealand sea salt to create the starry effect. A special Matariki blend of essential oils is both refreshing and uplifting. The soap cleanses gently and leaves your skin feeling very soft.
