A really beautiful natural product range made right here in New Zealand, in Golden Bay.

Besides using no artificial ingredients, such as emulsifiers, colouring agents, stabilisers or chemical additives in our products, being ‘Altogether Natural’ to us also means we use…

Certified organic NZ beeswax

With the unfortunate increase in pests such as the varroa mite in the bee hives, it has become increasingly difficult to access organic beeswax.  However, we value the need for this in our balms and have ensured a continued supply of certified organic beeswax.

No Genetic Engineering

We make every effort to ensure that all ingredients used in our products are free of genetic engineering.   We require certification from suppliers that their products are GE free.

No Artificial Preservatives

We use Vitamin E as a natural preservative in our balms. The vitamin E we use is produced from non-GMO soy. Vitamin E also is a skin healing agent and antioxidant, protecting against influences that age and damage cells.

With our commitment to only natural ingredients we aim for creating high quality products for massage and skin care that can be safely used and enjoyed by a variety of skin types, age groups and professions.

Product safety and preventing possible allergic reactions are a priority to us.

Focus on giving back

All profits of Tui Balms that are not used to develop the business are donated to NZ registered charitable trusts (at least 5% of all sales). The range of charities receiving our donations has been extensive and 24 charities benefited from our turnover in the 2021/22 financial year. This year we were able to donate a total of $52,082.

Bee Sting Allergy

There is no bee venom in the beeswax. The only other bee-related product we use is Propolis, used only in Bee Balm. Propolis is not a product made by bees, but is the resin and gum of plants collected by them. Consequently, even people with allergies to bee stings should have no problem with our products. However, the choice is always in the hands of the individual.

Nut Allergy

The only nut oil we use is almond oil and only in the massage balms. If you have a nut allergy, we recommend Coconut & Aloe Vera for massage, as this is nut oil free.  Also nut oil free are: Bee Balm, Baby Balm, Throat & Chest, Bug Balm, Bug Spray, Cooling & Soothing, Warming & Easing, Foot Balm and all Lip Balms.

Storage and Shelf Life

Despite the fact that all Tui products are protected with anti-oxidising vitamin E, they are still subject to rancidity if not stored correctly. We recommend that all jars be stored in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Rancidity in a product is usually indicated by a sharp smell or by a lightening in the colour of the wax. All the products do vary in colour though. This is because of the different ingredients used and seasonal variance in the appearance of the ingredients. So a variation in colour alone is not necessarily an indication of rancidity.

If stored appropriately we guarantee a shelf life of two years and expect longer. To check for the best-before-date of your product, look at the batch sticker on the bottom of the jar (e.g. JUN22).

TLC for your Balms

Here are our top tips for keeping your Balms in the best condition, allowing them to last as long as possible:

1) Wash your hands – Clean hands will minimise any potential cross-contamination and support best shelf life.

2) Use a spatula – We recommend using a clean spatula to dispense what you need, then returning the tub to a cool place while you work. We sell wooden spatulas via our website.

3) Keep it cool – Leaving your Balm in a hot place, such as next to a heater or in a car in the sun, will reduce the shelf life and may cause it to melt and separate like butter. This can damage the product. We recommend keeping your product at a stable room temperature, below 23 degrees Celsius.

4) In extreme heat, use a fridge – If the room you store your Balm in gets very hot, or stays above 23 degrees Celsius for a prolonged period of time, you may find it helpful to keep it in the refrigerator. This can help extend shelf life and will also aid the product staying firm before use.

5) Keep the lid on – Remember that small particles like dust and dirt can get into the Balm if the lid is off. You may find it helpful to dispense what you need into a bowl or onto the back of your hand, then putting the lid back on the tub before starting the treatment.
