Mohi Skin Care is named Mohi after a New Zealand Maori name. A name handed down to me through many generations of my father’s line. I proudly dedicated this family name to my skin care brand to honour my heritage. A symbol of respect to my ancestors who came before me.
I am Tracey Lee Reweti-Davis, a Ngāti Wai wāhine from Tuparehuia Marae. My family originates from the idyllic location of Bland Bay, Whangaruru in New Zealand.
Bland Bay is a magical location. A serene, undeveloped place still home to the native kiwi. When I travel home to New Zealand, this peaceful bay is a sweet escape from the chaos of city life.
Many generations of my family live and work in this bay and have done so for many years. Farming the land and fishing the sea. Training wild horses and gathering food and medicine from the surrounding native bush.
Our land overlooks the sea. It’s the serene moments spent gazing out across the ocean that I feel the deepest connection to my ancestors. I call to them to let them know that I am here. I am home.
