Oh Goodness celebrates Aotearoa

A note from the Founder

I'm Ana, a musician, mother of three, keen foodie and concerned citizen of planet earth.

Equipped with a do-it-yourself attitude and a desire to learn, I started Oh Goodness in late 2018.

My initial focus was  the growing plastic pollution problem, offering products that were plastic free, while remaining mindful to select only fairtrade, ethically sourced ingredients. 

Fast forward five years, and the scale of the climate crisis has revealed itself more acutely in need of consideration than ever. 

After much experimentation, a year of formulation study and hours researching soap making ingredients and methods, I'm very pleased to offer a new range of soaps focused on the concept of Local; locally made, locally sourced, locally used.  Soaps with a small footprint. 

It's been a fantastic five years for Oh Goodness, and I have learnt so much, both in terms of craft as well as all that goes into bringing products to market.

I hope you will continue to enjoy what Oh Goodness has to offer and I thank you all for your ongoing support of my small business.
