Tui Balms are Altogether Natural.
All ingredients used in our products are either whole substances occurring in nature or they are directly extracted from a whole, natural source.
No artificial preservatives, emulsifiers, colouring agents, stabilisers or chemical additives are used in any of our products.
These definitions are open to investigation like any other in the “natural” market place. However, we believe we are a long way along the road to creating products that do relate honestly with the intuitive sense many people have: That “natural” means something relating directly to original nature, not something minutely adapted and configured by human intervention.
Certified organic NZ beeswax
With the unfortunate increase in pests such as the varroa mite in the bee hives, it has become increasingly difficult to access organic beeswax. However, we value the need for this in our balms and have ensured a continued supply of certified organic beeswax.
No Genetic Engineering
We make every effort to ensure that all ingredients used in our products are free of genetic engineering. We require certification from suppliers that their products are GE free.
No Artificial Preservatives
We use Vitamin E as a natural preservative in our balms. The vitamin E we use is produced from non-GMO soy. Vitamin E also is a skin healing agent and antioxidant, protecting against influences that age and damage cells.
With our commitment to only natural ingredients we aim for creating high quality products for massage and skin care that can be safely used and enjoyed by a variety of skin types, age groups and professions.
Product safety and preventing possible allergic reactions are a priority to us.
