You care about your skin. You want it to be healthy, vibrant, and resilient.
You understand that your skin reflects your overall wellness, and you want a solution that goes beyond the superficial to offer genuine, lasting benefits.
Imagine having a solution that nurtures your skin at a deeper level. That nurtures, protects and supports natural healing.
That's why we created products that harness the powerful, natural benefits of Vitamin C and Dehydroascorbic Acid (DHAA).
Nerchr's founder, Morgan Barnes, had an interest in natural health, specifically vitamins and minerals, since he was a child. Coming from a blue-collar family, he started his career early, leaving school at 16 to become a builder and cabinetmaker, before taking over the family fishing tackle business following a back injury.
His interest in health led him to The University of Auckland, where he studied Medicinal Chemistry full time, while still operating and growing the family business.
As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C protects healthy skin from damage inflicted by free radicals. These harmful molecules are linked to cellular damage, inflammation and accelerating signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and age spots.
Beyond its protective capabilities, Vitamin C also plays a crucial role in addressing hyperpigmentation, a skin condition characterized by an overproduction of melanin leading to dark patches. By inhibiting melanin synthesis, Vitamin C aids in achieving a more balanced and luminous complexion.
One of the essential proteins integral to the skin's structure and elasticity is collagen. As we age, collagen synthesis diminishes, giving way to wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin C stimulates collagen production, promoting skin firmness and youthfulness.
The most common Vitamin C product found in skincare products is Ascorbic Acid. And although it’s great at protecting, hydrating and smoothing skin, it can also be an irritant.
Dehydroascorbic Acid (DHAA) is an oxidised form of Ascorbic Acid. It’s the form of Vitamin C that is most easily transported around the body.

I was so impressed and so happy when you told me about the vitamin C. I had spent many long months in pain and suffering from embarrassment because of the vascular dermatitis on my legs. It was constantly itchy and taking antihistamines and moisturizing just didn't do enough. I scratched my legs in my sleep, they would bleed and leak fluid onto my sheets. I hated it and didn't feel good about myself at all. My legs had to be covered all the time and I was socially isolated. I would like to say, I have full confidence in your products. I used it as you suggested and I can swim in pools again. My legs have healed. No more itching, no more wounds. Can't say thank you enough. Well worth the investment in my wellbeing.
