Mineral Make Up Range Launch

After much searching and testing I have now put together a bespoke range of mineral make up products. These include eye shadows/blushers/ foundations and a highlighter. These are all sold in a powder form and are of the purest kind of ingredients possible- we absolutely reject all nano particles/parabens/talc/bismuth chloride.  We blend a variety of micas and oxides to create the products. 
These are all available at wholesale enquiries welcome!

Earth's Gift Salon Range and new look

This range of natural skin care continues to expand- we have now added some bulk salon sized items which are perfect for the smaller clinic- the Chocolate foot mask has been a hit with all the testers! We make these fresh to fill an order- we can also custom make products for you (MOQ applies).
Please enquire! We sell the Earth's Gift range of natural skincare direct to retail via online. With the new look (coming soon) this range will also suit retail outlets so we welcome wholesale enquiries.

This range is undergoing some further modifications as we move towards organic certification. Gradually organic sunflower oil is replacing apricot kernel oil where it is used-we are also changing all products over to an eco cert olive based emulsifier. We have also decided to remove glycerine from our formula and replace it with a olive based emollient for its superior skin softening properties. As we are committed to being palm oil free we have found it hard to source glycerine which can be guaranteed to be palm oil free. Also a number of clients have expressed concern at possible allergies to glycerine. During my recent trip to Singapore I was privileged to spend time with the orangutans that roam free at Singapore Zoo which furthered my resolve to be palm oil free in every way. We have also completed the development of all our salon products and will be working at increasing the availability of these to outlets in NZ and around the world.

Our Award!
At the recent Natural Products New Zealand summit we were thrilled to receive the Excellence in marketing Award- as a small (but growing) business it is sometimes hard to get 'noticed' alongside the big guys- but we are making our mark out there- by sticking with our authentic principles and supplying quality products we are meeting the needs of discerning customers worldwide.

A handy home recipe-
Fabric softener- I make this all the time using second cutting lemon geranium hydrosol from . To litre hydrosol add 1 cup white vinegar and 1/2 cup baking soda. Once the fizzing has settled down add 1ml lavandin and 1 ml lemon essential oils. I use approx. 1/4 cup per load.
