Healthy skin comes from a healthy diet, and we believe that topical nutrition should be an essential part of that diet.
Over the years, our head dermal therapist, Tina Dion, began custom formulating products for clients that had specific requirements for their skin.
After custom blending a unique selection of freshly sourced ingredients for certain skin types, we started to see a pattern. Certain bases became our regular ” go to” formulations and the same products matched a set group of clients with the same skin concerns.
So came about our skin care line of products.
We wanted to promote our range in such a way that we could meet the client personally and offer them a specific prescription for their skins needs. It also made sense to have a mobile unit that would travel around to various destinations.
And so came the idea of launching our Retro “Pamper Van” in which we could offer skin diagnosis to clients and talk to them about their skins needs.
We source only spray free or organic herbs and oils. A great deal of these are grown at our very own herb pharm which has just moved down to the beautiful surroundings of Karangahake Gorge. There we work to permaculture principles which fuses together organic and sustainable practices.
To continue with this ethic, our packaging is all recyclable, and where is easily achieved you can bring back your tins to be either refilled or receive a discount.
