Hello, my name is Monica Shirer and I am the founder of BelleMax NZ. I firmly believe that our skin needs love, care and attention and that we should “feed” our skin by using products that are made from natural ingredients.
I started to make my own skin care products since 2018 following my grandmother’s beauty recipes using fruits, vegetables, naturally-occurring spices and carrier oils to hydrate and look after my hair and skin.
I wanted to make my products safe and functional therefore in 2020 I completed a Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation. I enjoy sharing my passion for natural ingredients and my love for nature through my handmade beauty products.
Botanical beauty from nature: Our products are made of natural ingredients from plants, flowers, herbs, nuts and seeds.
Natural & functional products: Less is more! Our products are made using just the necessary functional ingredients to nourish, hydrate and pamper your skin and nothing else.
Handmade in NZ: We produce items in small batches using natural ingredients from NZ based suppliers.
Water free: Our products are waterless which diminishes the need for preservatives and unnecessary fillers. Less water means you get more of the good stuff.
