Triumph & Disaster is an internationally loved New Zealand skincare brand selling its bespoke products all over the world. The name itself born from a poem read from father to an at-the-time defiant son, the brand is one of distinct taste and styled conviction. "If you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same” the poem reads. Triumph & Disaster the brand aims to do just that. Coming on the back of ethical practices and integrity, its business practices and products are ethically oriented, blending the future of commerce with the trust in nature we held in times past. 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 team at Status Anxiety believe that the future of sustainable business is a path of integrity and honesty (great marketing and a rocking distribution system may also help) and that customers deserve at least this much from the brands they support. They aim to respect nature, utilise science, create products of ritual and tools for preparation. You can see why this brand is a favourite of ours. Amongst all of their amazing products, we have two personal favourites, the ritual face cleanser and the game face moisturiser - both essentials for any bathroom.
RITUAL FACE CLEANSER
Less is more. Especially when it comes to your face. Cleaning with normal soap will strip skin of natural oils and protective qualities leaving it dry and exposed. 'Ritual Face Cleanser' has been formulated to avoid drying and irritation by exploiting the natural benefits of Tamanu oil, Peppermint oil, Willow bark extract and Bentonite clay. A gentle, natural, peppermint scented formulation designed for everyday use 'Ritual' gently dissolves grime while toning the skin, leaving you feeling fresh and looking bright.
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
1/ Rich in Tamanu oil from Polynesia, an antioxidant wonder oil used to heal scars, treat burns and generally save skin.
2/ Natural based anti-acne properties, perfect for oily skin, teenage skin or adult acne
3/ A gentle Peppermint scented, natural formulation designed for everyday use. Free of harsh chemicals and will not dry out skin.
Gameface moisturiser is a tool to serve and protect you from the elements. Specifically engineered to be light on the skin and easily absorbed, Gameface is a unique formulation of Jojoba extract, Horopito oil, Ponga fern (Cumingii) and Vitamin E, combined with a subtle infusion of essential oils to deliver a fragrance we call 'smoke and wood'. The result is a nutrient-rich, hydrating cream that will leave skin feeling toned, supple and fresh.
A great moisturiser should add elasticity and toning; it should deliver active ingredients that work with the skin's composition assisting it to stay in balance and uplifted. It should have active properties that can treat and protect the surface of the skin, addressing any surface inflammation or abrasions. And of course, it should work to hydrate the skin, locking in the good oil to keep skin enriched and healthy.
Your skin's natural oils and dead skin cells combine to create a natural barrier on your skin that serves two purposes: one is to keep nasties out; the other is to keep the good stuff – like moisture, in. Everyday exposure to the elements chips away at this natural protection. Moisturising regularly with high quality, naturally engineered products like Gameface combats this process and acts to level the playing field in the fight between your skin and the world.
