If you’ve been a fan of Tailor since we started, you know what this photo means to the team here and to Tailor’s founder and managing director, Sara.
It’s her original Kenwood Cake Mixer that she used when she made the first batch of Tailor, back in 2012!
Tailor Skincare has been a family affair from its inception: Sara occupied her Dad’s shed in Taranaki as home base. She would disappear in there for hours as she mixed her products and played with them, wanting to get their texture, colour and feel just right. It was her Mum who helped her test these products, either on themselves or they’d circulate them amongst their family and friends. Her little brother would sit with her at the kitchen table for hours helping her to make samples of the products to hand out.
Starting a business of your own is no ordinary feat, as many of you know. There’s a lot of sweat and tears that goes into your own biz and this one was no different. Sara began Tailor by funding the business with her minimum wage support worker salary. She literally used her entire pay cheque to purchase the famous Kenwood Cake Mixer in the beginning!
It was a big investment which paid off, and this is why we’re thrilled to share our good news with you…
Tailor Skincare is now ranged across selected Farmers retail stores!
Including in Sara’s her hometown of New Plymouth, Taranaki – where Tailor began.
This is an exciting move for us because it gives us access to a new audience of gorgeous kiwi men & women, giving them the option to choose green products over other synthetic options out there.
Not all Tailor gems will be available in store – only Oil Cleanse, Renew, Polish, Moisture and Mini Kits will be available at Farmers.
Thank you to all of our #TailorTribe supporters who have helped make this milestone possible!
Our goal has always been to make and provide nourishing, healthy and effective skincare products to suit your skin’s needs and we’ll continue to do so.
