TRIUMPH & DISASTER - NZ

Triumph & Disaster's philosophy is to use the best of science combined with the best of nature to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work. They use local indigenous ingredients such as Horopito oil and Ponga fern extract blended with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the globe, such as clay from Australia, Jojoba extract from Mexico and Tamanu oil from Polynesia. The company aims to respect nature and utilise science to create products of ritual and tools for preparation.

When I was about 13 years of age my father gave me a framed poem called ‘IF’ by Rudyard Kipling.  It was at a time when father and son were 'butting heads' so to speak so the poem was promptly defaced, graffitied over and thrown in a bottom drawer… but never thrown away. The poem is advice from a father to his son on how to be a man. It is about humility, honour, risk and reward. So when a tattered old poem that my dad had given me years before was uncovered in the bottom of an old chest and I read the line,

‘if you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same’ , well, the deal was done and the brand was born.  Founder Dion Nash
