Our founder, Tracy Ahern is a skincare innovator with over three decade’s experience. She knows what’s effective and what’s a fad when it comes to skin, and after opening her first beauty clinic in 1994, she quickly grew one of New Zealand’s premier spa chains over the past two decades. Skincare is in her DNA and she is determined to help people from all walks of life achieve healthy skin.
Skincare isn’t the only passion of Tracy’s, she also cares deeply for the wellbeing of our environment. Tracy personally ensures Au Natural Skinfood looks after the earth by using recyclable and refillable packaging , which reduces packaging waste by 75% compared to regular beauty industry products.
“My mission as a beauty innovator is to deliver the most effective skincare treatments in packaging that has the least impact on our environment.”
Au Natural Skinfood is on a mission to detox the world of chemical beauty, while simultaneously leaving our planet better than when we found it.
Plastics vs convenience. Our society puts convenience ahead of anything else. While in the short run you may not recognize the consequences, in the long run we are destroying he only planet we have. We at Au are actively reducing single use plastics waste by having refillable and recyclable packaging.
The beauty of less. Many industries put more ingredients on the label than they do in their products and fill the rest with chemicals. We’ve formulated our products with more concentration on the good stuff and none of the bad.
Leave It Better. This is a role we all participate in, we are extremely proud to be have partnered with the Jane Goodall Institute of New Zealand in 2019. Jane Goodall is a huge inspiration for us at Au, as she has works tirelessly to protect chimpanzees and conserve the natural world we all take for granted.
This amazing institute has the motto “everything is connected – everyone can make a difference” we are doing our bit for the environment with our eco packaging and refillable bottles. But it doesn’t end with us, give Au a try and you’ll see the difference.
