About the Founder - Jenny Wood
I started making my own skincare creams (mainly moisturisers) when I became dismayed at the ever increasing price of the New Zealand made, natural products on the market.
Many years ago, while working for the excellent aromatherapy company Absolute Essential I completed a short cosmetic making course. The knowledge gained from the course combined with my years of working in the essential oil business, plus a diploma in naturopathy, gave me the confidence to begin experimenting with my own formulas. After many small batches I was reasonably happy with my products but felt they needed a professional review. I was fortunate to find the lovely Andrejka Korosec - founder of BioCosmeceuticals New Zealand. She is a professional formulator in the natural skincare industry, and with her advice and testing we came up with a formula which meets industry standards and which fulfilled my brief: high quality skincare at an affordable price! After many more test batches I felt confident with my products and so began the journey to make them available to others.
My Mission is To make a range of natural skincare products of excellent quality at an affordable price
To achieve this aim the oils and other ingredients I use are all plant based and where possible, organic. They are of the highest quality I can source. Preservatives are all Ecocert approved (the mission of the international Ecocert Standard for Natural and Organic cosmetics is to ensure a product is natural and environmentally friendly throughout its life cycle).
My products come to you in lovely, hygienic glass containers or bottles and will have minimal packaging – no fancy cardboard boxes.
Direct selling from me to you means no middle person mark-ups.
Advertising will be minimal and mainly via the internet – or word of mouth!
The creams, serums and lotions are produced in small batches in my home, ensuring freshness and quality control, as well as keeping manufacturing costs low. This also allows me to add new ingredients and increase my product range quickly.
Payment and delivery options: When you wish to purchase products please email me with your order and contact details (or order through the 'Contact' page) and I will reply with payment and delivery options. These will include cash, direct debit to my bank account. Pick-up option (Mt Eden, Auckland) and postage option, which should be about $6.00.
