Pure, Natural, Organic & Ethical
Nature provides all we need, so we stick to all natural ingredients, ones that our great-grandmothers used to have growing in the garden or stored in the medicine cabinet. You won't find any palm oil or GMO's here!
We believe in full transparency, so all our ingredients are listed on our website and on the product label.
We go to GREAT lengths (and we mean A LOT) to source certified ethical and organic ingredients. Many hours of time, effort and research has gone into finding the very best ingredients for our products.
We DO NOT test on animals; we test our products on ourselves and our whanau instead - that's the fun part!
Did you know that almost 90% of ingredients used in cosmetics and personal care products have not been safety tested for human health effects? By the time you left your home this morning, it is estimated that the average woman would have exposed herself to over 200 chemicals and a man to around 100!
Earth Conscious & Zero Waste
We aim to keep our eco footprints small & support our mother Earth. We aim to live in connection with Papatuanuku (Mother Earth), so we try to live as sustainably as possible, choosing to buy products that are eco-friendly, growing lots of our own food, and making our own cleaning products. It's really heartening seeing a growing number of people doing the same!
ALL our products are packaged in glass, tin or cardboard packaging, and we are continuously looking for even better options!
We took a stand against all the plastic shipping bags and now have zero waste shipping, including paper packing tape - we were so stoked to find paper tape!
We do all we can to help keep our planet pristine. We always recycle everything we possibly can and encourage our suppliers to ship ingredients zero waste also.
All our cardboard and paper products to our ingredients are delivered in are recycled, or reused to package parcels. We only print what is necessary and use 100% recycled paper.
We are happy to recycle any clean Nature Body glass jars or glass bottles if you can return them to us, and we offer a $1 discount per returned glass jar/bottle off next purchase (contact us to arrange).
For your shampoo and conditioner bottles we will happily refill them. When you return them to us you will receive a discount of $3 per 250ml bottle, or $2 per 50 ml bottle (contact us to arrange).
We are two sisters living at the top of the Queen Charlotte Sound in the beautiful Marlborough region. Natural, sustainable skin and body care is a passion of ours handed down from our whanau.
Nature Body was originally created in 2008 by Nitya & Kyle Nixon, in Kerikeri. These freinds are still in the background, supplying us with many of the healing herbal oils & tinctures that Nature Body uses.
Nature Body is about supporting families and individuals to live affordably and naturally, while also supporting our earth.
We hope you thoroughly enjoy these products; we love creating them.
Any feedback, support, or product requests are welcomed.
