Strong export focus.


This long-established cosmetics business has its own brands, product ranges and a strong export focus.

The highlights of this business include:

  • Ownership of a unique range of brands and exclusive access to recipes and formulations.
  • From its Auckland base, the business sells throughout New Zealand and internationally (greater than 90% of its business is from international customers).
  • Historically the business has benefited from being a preferred supplier to a significant international customer. There are opportunities to utilise surplus capacity to explore additional business to increase revenue and profitability and further diversify the business.
  • All products are contract manufactured in New Zealand by an independent third party.
  • Premises, including an office and warehouse, which are well located in Auckland. Currently the premises are also owned by a related party and there are options around future lease arrangements.
  • Simplicity of the business model, which means invoicing and administration procedures are minimised and requires only a lean administration team.


Revenue has consistently been in excess of $1.8m per annum in each of the past four financial years (FY17 to FY20), peaking at $2.4m in FY19*.

During the same time frame normalised profit (EBPITD) has also been consistent, averaging approximately $545k per annum.

While the Covid 19 pandemic did initially adversely impact sales to its major overseas customer from March 2020, sales have now resumed to a significant level. There are also new product ranges ready for release.
