Seed + Soul Skincare

First up, introduce yourself and your business, where are you from, what do you do and why?

We are Zahn and Karen, best friends who launched Seed and Soul in November 2016. Seed and Soul is Skincare that incorporates aromatherapy to repair inside and out.

We believe beauty comes from within so we wanted to create unique blends of plant-derived, paraben free ingredients with hand picked essential oils to calm the mind and relieve the body of stress.

How did you get started? What was the turning point?

We both suffer from sensitive skin and eczema, desperate to find some relief we started whipping up handmade natural moisturisers in Karen’s kitchen to ease our own frustration and it worked!

When our friends started asking to use the products we were inspired to formulate a full line of responsible skincare and share our love for natural wellbeing and sustainability with the rest of NZ and hopefully help others suffering from problem skin.

What did you do prior to your current business?

We both work full time in ‘real jobs’, Karen works as an Event Producer and Zahn works in Marketing and Design.

What do you love the most about your business and what you do?

SO many things! We love helping other people solve their skin problems, sharing our passion for wellbeing and started conversations about sustainability.

What are your future plans?

We have some pretty big hairy audacious goals like being a household name while remaining a small business. We pride ourselves on handcrafting each product in small batches and never want to lose sight of that, it’s who we are.

Who do you find inspirational or what do you do to find inspiration?

Our brunch dates keep us sane and allow the inspiration to flow, we are also big fans of getting outside and going for a walk.

And to close, what have you learnt on your journey? If there was one piece of advice you could give your fellow entrepreneurial ladies, what would it be?

Just do it!
