Owner Danvers Devereux is passionate about New Zealand and is constantly inspired by the opportunity to develop products, working with the best of what the country has to offer.
“New Zealand offers the ideal environment to create our products and to source premium natural ingredients from specialised growers, which is in turn reflected in the quality of the products we produce. I am forever being inspired when I discover a new source or supplier who is growing or producing a unique ingredient,” says Danvers.
Examples of these wonderful hero ingredients are the extra virgin olive and macadamia oil pressed at Matakana, wild harvested organic Manuka Honey and Manuka Oil sourced from Great Barrier Island and lavender grown and distilled on their own farm.
