ESSENTIAL ITEMS AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW!
On Monday 30th March, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment issued a statement declaring that the sale of essential non-food products will be allowed during the COVID-19 shutdown.
The definition of essential goods includes those that maintain people's health and that these should be available online or by phone so that people can safely self isolate and stop the spread of COVID-19.
After some demand from customers, we decided to register with MBIE as a business selling essential goods so that we could offer needed products that we consider to be essential for maintaining the health and well being of everyone self isolating at home.
In order to be able to sell these essential goods to the public, businesses must:
The safety of our whānau, customers and the community is our top priority. Along with the strict guidelines from MBIE our Quality Assurance team has completed thorough Health and Safety Standard Working Procedures (SOP's).
Though some may have a different opinion as to what should be considered an essential product. It is a confusing time for everyone and we are working hard to ensure that we do the right thing as we try to navigate the rapidly changing situation we find ourselves in.
We are a whānau business, which means we all work and live together, although Jasmine our Director/Artists will be the only one producing and sending out orders.
All our whānau have been trained for personal hygiene, workplace sanitisation, the use of personal protective equipment and effective social distancing.
We have selected a range of products that we feel meet the definition of essential non-food products.
These include Kawakawa soaps, balms, soaking salts, loofah sponge, facial clay masks and organic sugar scrub.
These items will be available to the public, you do not need to be an essential business. However, if you are an essential business and an item you require is not available, please contact us for further assistance.
Items that can not be purchased will have a banner "SOLD OUT"
Service and Delivery
We will be operating with only ONE staff, across our packing, dispatching and customer service. As such there will unfortunately, be limits to our normal service offering.
We hope you are all well and ask that you all be patient and only order essential items if you need them, please understand that we are all doing our best in these difficult times. Stay safe, stay at home and be kind.
