MCGINNS MADEFRESH

Origins
After graduating with a Science degree, I've had a few careers but none as all encompassing as now being a busy mum to Tom aged 7 and partner to Shane, and running a small business out of our family home in Christchurch. Mcginns was hatched when breastfeeding my son, for the first time considering the how chemicals commonly found in personal care products could effect a rapidly growing body. This prompted the start of research and development for my own range of skin care products. My skin had never before looked healthier, which spurred me on to create more. Over the years my range has grown to include Facial Serum, Sunbalm and now Solid Shampoo and Conditioner Bars.

Philosophy
New Zealand has many wonderful ingredients and I love to show case them. Every ingredient has been considered, and I intentionally keep batches small, so that when you purchase a product you know you are buying something carefully and freshly prepared.

I believe its important to care for the environment, and to that end packages are sent in either Home Compostable Plant plastic courier bags, or heavy card mailer bags. I am constantly looking for ways to reduce plastic use and am currently investigating 100% reusable stainless steel pots to send out products like my cleansers and pot balms in. Message me if you would like to know more - I'd love to hear your thoughts. :) Jo
