Natural skincare, handmade in Hawke's Bay
inbar - created with plant based in mind
inbar products are free from chemicals and preservatives, formulated with ALL natural plant-based ingredients.
I believe that the foundation of skin care products should be plant-based. Plant-based ingredients contain all the nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and essential fatty acids necessary to nurture, support and strengthen the health and function of the skin.
My philosophy with inbar natural skincare is that it ticks four criteria:
- Moisturise and hydrate skin,
- maintain a clear and radiant complexion,
- be without chemicals or preservatives and,
- be therapeutic and healing at the same time.
What does "Plant-Based" mean?
Every one of my products that I formulate is focused on the need of the skin and how that product will meet that need through botanical blends. Botanical blends are the use and combination of plant carrier oils, plant essential oils, plant hydrosols and plant extracts chosen for their therapeutic qualities and benefits. Once the blends are chosen, they are then formulated, crafted and trialled on the effect and impact they have on the health of the skin.

Nurture and nourish skin with all natural plant-based products. No chemicals, fillers or preservatives are used or needed. Rely on the therapeutic qualities and goodness of plants to care for your skin bringing harmony and balance.
I also offer custom blends - a product such as a balm, facial oil or moisturising cream, tailored to your skin's needs after a consultation with you, to find out what you need. If you are interested, get in touch below! I'm happy to answer any questions you may have along the way.
Hi, I'm Amber Palmer, founder of inbar natural skincare.
My journey into the natural skin care realm began in 2008. I was selling and using a well known beauty product line and wanted to further my understanding in skin care. This lead me to complete a beauty care course over a 2 year period, where I learnt the fundamentals in the function and health of the skin... and how to make customised beauty care products. For the next 10 years, I experimented and trialled many different recipes and ingredients, formulating my own recipes and learning the joy of creativity and success. I shared my enthusiasm with friends and family; and over the years have taught individuals and small groups how to make their own products. Many times others would say - ‘Why don’t you sell it?’ I would brush it off feeling intimidated by the ‘What if’s.’ Finally, in 2018 after coaching a successful skin care making workshop, I was sufficiently encouraged to embark on creating my own skin care range.
What's important to me
Our skin is the largest organ. We need to be selective of what we put on our skin as certain ingredients and chemicals can pass through the skin’s protective barrier and into the bloodstream. Therefore, it makes sense to be responsible in my skin care products and refrain from the use of chemical based ingredients.
