Have you met…?

Mel from Malsea Body Co? We’ve had a few Malsea Products in our boxes over the last year or two, including their delicious perfumes. Mel took the time to sit down with us and tell us a little about her business. Let’s go!

Name: Mel

Business name: Malsea Body Co

What do you make / create:  Luxurious Vegan Bath and Body Products

What inspired you to first go into business and make your own products?  Since my early 20’s it’s something that has always been in the back of my head.  I have a background in Beauty Therapy and have worked with a lot of products, I started creating my own when I realized I didn’t like a lot of the things I had been using.

What’s one piece of advice you wish you’d had when you first started?  Invest in a business coach – do it once and do it right!

What’s your favourite product from your own range?  That’s really hard, but I’m currently loving the Seren Perfume oil and Mango and Papaya Body Oil.

How do you like to treat yourself?  Definitely a trip to the spa! 

What’s your go to place when looking for a gift for others?  I love to gift my own products as well as turning to other small businesses in NZ, I just have to scroll my Instagram feed for inspo!

What’s your favorite NZ made product?  I honestly don’t have just one!  I’m a skin and bodycare junkie!  While a do make my own products am always supporting others!  I currently have skin and body care products from Homey Skin Co, Mia Bella, Koko Body, Ed & I, Oxygen and Tailor Skincare.

Who are some of your favorite small businesses?  There is just to many to name!  There are so many talented and creative woman in business.  Take a scroll through my following list – its chocka!

What can’t you live without?  My Malsea Lip Balm – I have a pot like everywhere!  The Car, Handbag, Bedroom and makeup bag!
