Margaret Hema Skincare History
Honest Nature Beauty
“Margaret Hema originally created HEMA skin care products purely for her facial clientele in Wellington, New Zealand. Her compelling concept was the non-use of exfoliants and skin tightening clay masks in both salon facials and home skin care regimes.
The idea was to provide products that would maintain a healthy firm pore structure and a smooth even-toned skin surface.
In those formative years, clients, after they had their facials with Margaret, would take home hand-blended facial oils in a plain brown bottle with a hand-made sticker describing what was in the oil. The product had no name. The HEMA branding came three years later when due to demand – word of mouth spread the message and people wanted to stock her hand-blended products. In 2016 Margaret personalizes her brand and going forward Hema becomes Margaret Hema.
Seonaid Lyons -Auckland Hema Representative
Holistic Facialist, Yoga & Pilates Teacher, Workshop, Retreat Facilitator
Margret Hema handpicked me to mentor and award me with the Diploma in her Hema facial Technique and skincare philosophy. I became the Auckland Representative in 2010. With my years of experience in somatic practices and a deep understanding of the body in a holistic sense, my sensitive approach and intuitive touch caught the attention of the facial guru. An energy and passion for the organic lifestyle made me the perfect candidate to continue the Hema tradition.
With my love for nurturing others, I kept expanding my skills to include the Hema Facial Technique and skincare philosophy, massage, Ayurvedic treatments and trainings in plant essences. I am passionate about a natural and holistic approach to health and wellbeing. I am inspired by a sensitive and informative approach to body awareness and emotional wellbeing, and I am passionate about expression and depth.
My journey began professionally training to be a Contemporary/Ballet dancer. I was introduced to many embodiment and awareness modalities and practices as part of the training. Yoga and Pilates became an integral part of my practice; I continued on to study in both disciplines and continue to do so. I have been performing and teaching in Studios, Corporate and International Retreat settings for 15 years. I am inspired by a sensitive and informative approach to body awareness and emotional wellbeing.
