Not for profit social enterprise

All profits of Tui Balms that are not used to develop the business are donated to NZ registered charitable trusts (at least 5% of all sales). The range of charities receiving our donations has been extensive and 25 charities benefited from our turnover in the 2018/19 financial year. This year we were able to donate a total of $46,128 to 25 NZ registered charities.

Tui Balms also supports various charitable organisations by providing free product. We regularly support kindergarten and primary school fundraisers by sending them product for their raffles, and donate Baby Balm to organisations offering packs for families in need, e.g. Little Sprouts, It Takes A Village, and the neo-natal wards around NZ.
