Nothing beats understanding how menopause can affect our bodies, beauty and sense of wellbeing than going through it oneself!
Empowered by Nature
NatFem Balm is handcrafted in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand by a small artisan company called Archeus.
Established in 2013, Archeus has gained international recognition for creating products with the things it loves: natural ingredients and centuries of herbal wisdom.
Our philosophy centres on working with nature, rather than against it and we apply this to all decisions we make, from the ingredients we selected to the problems we seek to address with our products and services.
We started making our original vaginal dryness product - NatFem Balm, back in 2016.
In 2022 we are consolidating our NatFem Botanics range which offers products for body, beauty and mind to offer a truly holistic way of supporting women through the menopause transition.
We also offer the revolutionary FLOWpresso therapy at our premises in Havelock North because we think it is superb for helping keep body and soul supported through this time.
Archeus founder Georgina Langdale is in her mid-fifties and had gone through the menopause transition by the time she was 50.
Her life and career has taken her all around the world, but now she is happily ensconced in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand and believes that going through menopause is has been both empowering and liberating.
She's combined the knowledge of menopause that only comes with experience (and listening to other women's experience of it too) with the many years of technical skill she has formulating and making natural and organic products for body, beauty and mind.
KEEPING IT REAL
Inspired by Nature
Our holistic approach to personal care draws on centuries of women’s wisdom about plants and methods used for health, beauty and wellbeing. And
when it comes to menopause, we’ve been through it, and we have talked to hundreds of women in New Zealand and around the world as they have gone through it too. The combination of this experience, inquiry and herbal wisdom means that we’ve developed our NatFem Botanics range to truly meet your needs with natural products for natural changes.
THE POWER OF POSITIVE AGEING
We believe in the power of positive ageing. We love this phase of life and we love helping women tap into the liberation and empowerment it can bring. And we do it in a way that is as kind as possible to the great mother herself, our beautiful planet Earth. In addition to using natural and organic ingredients and low-impact manufacturing processes, we also donate a portion of every purchase to environmental and women's projects.
