LOTION BAR & TIN-Lemongrass

“Have you tried a Lotion Bar before? It’s a moisturiser in a solid bar. Just hold it in your hand for a few moments and the warmth of your body will soften it slightly, and then you can rub it on as a moisturiser. You can use it all over your body, but it’s especially good for hands, elbows, knees and heels ”

Anoint Lotion Bars are a deeply nourishing moisturiser (not soap!) in a solid bar. The ingredients are a simple combination of Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and Pure Essential Oils. This lotion bar is not only gift wrapped in upcycled materials but comes in its own pale blue metal tin with the Anoint logo embossed into the lid. The tin offers an extra special way to gift a Lotion Bar and the perfect place to store a Lotion Bar once unwrapped.

Erica is the inspiring and very hard working Mama behind the Anoint Skincare business. Anoint are an artisan skincare company based in Kerikeri, in the beautiful Bay of Islands in the far North of New Zealand. Founded on the belief that nature knows best, we use all natural skin nourishing ingredients to hand craft their range.

Their packaging philosophy is unique and is either upcycled, recycled, reusable or recyclable. Rather than plastic, where ever possible they use glass, tin or cardboard.

Anoint originated on Waiheke Island in 2012 in an eclectic gallery called Upcycle formed by a co-operative of creative souls with a passion for upcyling and re-purposing unwanted and discarded objects.

The first batch of Lotion Bars were wrapped in an Odhams Encyclopedia for Children with a damaged spine bought for a $1 at the local car boot sale, and embellished with discarded ribbons from the local op shop and sold out in record time. After a few weeks of brainstorming for a brand name Anoint was born.
