Ponsonby News - Miri, more than just skin care

Miri, more than just skincare

Miri is a locally owned family business born out of the desire to create natural petrochemical free skincare products. The name of the company means ‘soothe’ and ‘well-being’, hence our mission was also simple; to create soothing natural skincare products that nourish and calm everyday skin.

Director and co-owner, Rachel Morriss-Jarvis say’s, “What you put on your skin is as important as what we eat on a daily basis. New Zealand has some of the most incredible natural ingredients, so why not put them to good use in helping people manage their skin ailments.”

Miri all-purpose balm is the first in the range with the healing properties of Manuka honey and Kiwifruit seed oil. The balm is great for moisturising lips on those cold days, treating dry or cracked skin and is soothing for burns, scrapes, rashes, nourishing cuticles and those pesky insect bites.

The balm is especially good for the prevention of nappy rash and can also be used for general massage. “It’s such a great all-purpose balm for the whole family,” says Rachel “plus it contains none of those nasty chemicals.”

Since the launch last year, Miri has received positive feedback from customers who have also found the balm beneficial for managing their eczema and dermatitis ailments.

Miri is available nationwide in over 400 pharmacies and their little green tube is finding its way into South East Asia and China. Simple, natural New Zealand skincare is proving incredibly popular.
