I'm Liz, the creator and owner of Bodytreats, handmade artisan natural skincare. Based in Te Awamutu in the mighty Waikato, I hand-make all my products in small batches, so they arrive to you fresh. You can also find me on Facebook under Bodytreatsnz, where I really appreciate any reviews of products you have tried!
All the products I make are designed to be gentle and kind to both your skin & the environment, and the packaging I use is fully recyclable. No chemical nasties & cruelty free is also important.
I believe in 4 Steps to Healthy and Happy skin - cleanse, tone/balance, nourish and hydrate. Skin is all sorts of different, no one size fits all - so the product range has lots of variety with options to suit all skin types.
Having sensitive skin meant I have had to be careful about what I put on it, and growing up there was not a lot of choice or information about natural skincare options. Dare I admit there was no google at this time, and naturopaths were considered"out there"!!
Back in the 80's my world was revolutionised when a friend moved to London and sent me a Body Shop box of goodies. Oh my! What were these gorgeous products?! My skin loved them all, and I was so happy when Body Shop opened in NZ.
From there a love of natural products with ingredients my skin loved, grew into an addiction. Fast forward many years later, my Happy Place is in my lab playing with quality ingredients and working on new recipes.
Thank you for visiting and having a look
