Supporting small and supporting local is a really big thing for us, there is nothing better than knowing your purchase is going towards making someones dream come true. Emma from The Moa Body Range is one of the very first suppliers I got in touch with when I took the first steps to get my own dream, Bundles for Bumps, up and running. Her products are handmade and filled with only natural ingredients. She puts so much love and care into her products and has a genuine passion for what she does. We've included some of these amazing products in our gift bundles for new mums, available here, you'll find Miss Foxy in our Mum Essentials - Pre Packed Hospital Bag which makes the perfect massage oil during labour and we also have a small selection of products available to purchase on their own here.
Here's what Emma has to say about her amazing business The Moa Body Range.
'Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful'
We'd love to hear how The Moa Body Range came about, when was it established and how did it evolve into the business it is today?
I have a green thumb and I have always been interested in the medicinal aspects of plants. A couple of years ago I was looking in the mirror and couldn't understand why I still had teenage problematic skin, so I did lots of research to come up with a natural product for my own skin care, my friend's and family tried it, loved it and wanted to buy it, so it grew into what it is today and is still growing!
Tell us a little bit about the team that runs The Moa Body Range.
The team that runs The Moa Body Range is just little ol' me, but I am so lucky to have amazing supportive friends that help me out when things get a bit hectic.
What gets you out of bed in the morning and gives you the drive to keep The Moa Body Range ticking?
I am so excited when I get out of bed each morning, thinking that I may help someone find "their own kind of beautiful" just like I found mine.
Are there any exciting things coming up for The Moa Body Range that you can share with us?
There are a couple of things going on behind the scenes at TMR. I am working on turning our spare room into a "Moa Body" space so I can move out of my kitchen where I currently make everything
I have also been working on a Moa Baby Range, a Moa Men's Range and two inspiring face masks!!!
Is there anything else you'd like to add?
The Moa Body Range name comes from where I live, Moa Flat, West Otago.
There are absolutely no nasties in my range and it's good enough to eat.
I am super passionate about offering these amazing high quality products at affordable prices, so everyone can afford to use these on their whole family.
