There is so much involved in launching a new product.
Dreaming, scheming, researching, bee-searching, hand crafting, testing (humans only!), more testing, tweaking, speaking to growers and suppliers, test test testing, puzzling over planet friendly packaging, tears, cheers, label design, writing, crafting at scale, website shenanigans, a sprinkling of heartfelt marketing, shipping logistics, unboxing the final product, happy tears, hitting “PUBLISH” on our product listing…
Gosh, golly, what a ride!
But it’s all worth it because crafting natural beauty care is our soul purpose.
And sharing it with you… well, that’s the honey-covered-cherry-on-top.

Five beedazzling new products
🐝 Bioactive Leatherwood Honey Jelly Mask
We’re a little too excited about this plumptious number. Our Honey Jelly Mask is like soaking rains for parched skin and smells like sun-warmed honeycomb. It’s our most hydrating facial treatment to date; a soothing, smoothing and brightening mask that contains three different kinds of hyaluronic acid (the ultimate locker-innerer of epidermal moisture). Tell your mates to put their sunnies on because the radiance will be real thanks to potent extracts of Blackcurrant Gemmo, Apple Stem Cells, Saffron, Sea Kelp and Leatherwood Honey – nature’s A-team for de-clogging pores, regenerating cells, quenching inflammation and correcting complexion.
Indications: dry, tight, dull, rough, inflamed skin
Benefits: hydrates deeply, brightens complexion, soothes inflammation, smoothes wrinkles, boosts plumpness.
Due: Late January 2024 We Hope
🐝 Mud & Honey Green Clay Mask
Who doesn’t love a clay mask? And if your skin is prone to hoarding (skin cells, sebum/oil, grime) this deeply cleansing treatment does a topical Marie Kondo. We added two different types of clay (kaolin and bentonite) for doubly good drawing out of deeply lodged impurities. Then there’s Leatherwood honey and Tassie kelp to clean up and calm down inflammation; willow bark to melt away the glue that keeps dead cells stuck; mushroom extract for amazing-much? pore shrinkage; calendula for rapid healing and repair; and Tasmanian blue gum that has become one of our favourite bush botanicals for its antiinflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant and complexion smoothing prowess.
Indications: visible pores, excess oil production, congestion, redness and inflammation
Benefits: refines pores, cleans and clarifies, mops up oil, removes impurities without drying, evens out skin tone
Due: April May 2024
🐝 Honey Butter Lip Balm
Roaring winds, beating sun and air so dry it crackles… that’s Tassie for you! Lip balm is an essential bit of kit down here, which is why we’re thrilled to share that our Honey Butter Lip Balm will be landing in 2024. This is one helluva hydrating balm, bringing instant relief and intense moisturisation for hard working smiles. The star is Leatherwood Honey and Beeswax, which is a wild and medicinal Tasmanian honey found nowhere else in the world. It soothes, smoothes and locks in moisture for the long haul, with powerful wound healing factors and a sweet honey scent.
Indications: dry, chapped, cracked, sore and stinging lips
Benefits: a synergy of plant butters, waxes and Leatherwood honey supplies instant moisture and long lasting hydration, softening and healing to improve your lip’s condition over time
Due: March 2024
🐝 Honey Nectar Hair Mask
Do your tresses ever get frazzled, frizzy, flat or filled with those tiny little forks at the end of each follicle (formerly known as split ends)? If you answered “ARGH YES” you might also say “AW YAY!” to our Honey Nectar Hair Mask. This DEEPLY nourishing hair treatment actively repairs split ends and instantly improves your hair’s condition. It’s rich without being heavy, warmly absorbing into each strand to soften, strengthen and shine up. We filled it with pure hair food in the form of hydrolyzed wheat protein, nettle and olive oil, then added blackcurrant extract to minimise intra-shaft water retention (a big cause of weakness and breakage). It also showcases beautiful local botanicals such as Tasmanian blue gum and waratah extract – exciting!
Indications: dry scalp, split ends, frizz, dullness, hairfall
Benefits: strengthens and heals existing hair shafts, promotes healthy new growth, reduces breakages, hairfall and frizz, calms and cleanses the scalp, protects against UV damage
Due: May 2024
🐝 Luxe Face Cream (in a travel-friendly tube!)
If there’s one product we’re dying for you to try, it’s this. Our new Luxe Face Cream is the Rolls Royce of moisturisers, deeply hydrating and featuring a very special ingredient found in no other skincare range at this point in time. Blackcurrant Gemmo is an extract made from the blackcurrant flower bud juuuust before it blooms. It’s pure life force energy and remarkably potent, filled with plant hormones, antioxidants, nutrients and growth factors that act on the deepest layers of skin to hydrate, heal and restore health. Blackcurrant Gemmo is incredibly labour intensive and our local organic herb maestro Marleen Herbs is one of the few growers producing it in the world. So you can see why we’re squealing! Tired, dry, prematurely ageing and mature skin will lap up our Luxe Face Cream, as will most skin types for that matter.
Indications: dry, tight, dull, irritated, congested, lined or ageing skin
Benefits: ultra hydrating for velvety soft skin, increases moisture uptake and retention for supple, radiant skin, improves skin cell health at the point of replication, offers deep drainage and detoxification of environmental pollutants and congestion, restores integrity to skin cell walls, protects DNA to slow the signs of ageing, quenches inflammation, promotes a smooth, even complexion, increases collagen production and synthesis.
