About the estate
The Simunovich Olive Estate in the Bombay Hills, 40 kilometres from central Auckland, home to renowned Bracu Restaurant and Bracu Pavilion, produces premium quality extra virgin olive oil and an extensive range of olive based skin care and beauty products.
The Simunovich family first began cultivating the olive on the beautiful island of Brac, Croatia. They also began crafting soaps, cleansers and moisturisers that soon found a following with their neighbours and fellow countrymen. Today on the Estate in the Bombay Hills, this family tradition lives on with the skin care ranges.
Honoured for generations, extra virgin olive oil has been a large part of our Simunovich family tradition. Extra virgin olive oil based skin care products are manufactured in a purpose built, state-of-the-art laboratory and packaging facility on the Estate.
With the technical expertise of an in-house research and development team, along with the most advanced equipment in New Zealand, they have formulated gentle, effective, natural formulations inspired by the original family recipes that refresh, cleanse and hydrate skin for a youthful, revitalised result.
Olive skin care contains extra virgin olive oil, an antioxidant rich in vitamins and minerals which has been used as a beauty secret in the Mediterranean for centuries and olive leaf extract which is rich in Oleuropein, a natural antioxidant extremely beneficial for your skin.
The purity and goodness of their very own olive oil, enhanced by carefully selected combinations of highly effective botanical plant extracts, ensures that they bring the best natural quality skincare to their customers.
