Our stance on sustainability and the environment
One of the founding principles of Three Gems is to create natural skincare products that reduce the chemicals that end up in our bodies and the environment. Recyclable packaging is used wherever possible, and we are constantly looking for sustainable options that will maintain the integrity of the products and the values on which the business was built.
While some of our ingredients originate in other parts of the world, we purchase them from organically certified New Zealand suppliers who buy in large quantities, thereby keeping the carbon footprint as low as possible.
I am pleased to say that no animals have been harmed or used for testing in the production of our products. The Three Gems range has been thoroughly tested on friends, family, and colleagues since 2012.
We carefully sterilise and reuse all containers where possible for re-use. Courier bags are either home-compostable or fully recyclable, and we use a recycled stone-based material for our labels.
The ingredients we use
Pure and natural goodness, nothing else
Within 1 week of using the Neroli B Face Oil I had noticed a difference, my skin was lighter and brighter, and then over the next couple of months I noticed my pigmentation and lines had decreased, my eyes appeared brighter, no more dark circles and the skin had brightened.
I have been using the Neroli B face oil for a few months now. It’s brilliant! I have less fine lines, especially around my eye area and my skin looks so much brighter and smoother. It wasn’t instant but the gradual improvement over time has been very good. I love this product and the fact that it is all natural goodness.
The lip balms are fantastic. I have two of them, one is the spearmint and the other is the tinted. They keep my lips soft and moisturised and they have been great on those times my lips have been burnt from too much sun, supporting and helping my lip to heal. I love knowing that I am putting only natural ingredients on my skin. The tinted one is beautiful with or without full makeup and fits perfectly in my wallet. Thank you Three Gems.
I ordered the Rose Body Butter. Not for my whole body, but for my feet – I use a magnesium oil every night on my feet, and it’s a bit drying on my skin. Using this body butter is a luxurious (but affordable!) treat. It leaves my feet soft, and it smells divine. I do now also use it on my legs at night and they feel great. The softness lasts for ages after one use! Love that this product contains no water or fillers etc. and that it comes in a quality glass jar.
This product is the first that I have tried that has accomplished what it said it would do. I have had trouble with bacterial acne, and the Essential Skin Care trio have been a real benefit to helping clear it along with a natural treatment program. My skin is clearer and looks amazing. It is softer and looks more youthful. I am so grateful that I found Three Gems when I was visiting Nelson, and I recommend their products to anyone wanting to use a 100% natural product that achieves what it says.
I purchased your 3 essential facial products and noticed such a difference on my face. The acne has cleared up. Just wanted to let you know I love your product, it is working for me! Thanks so much for creating this, it took a long while to find something that worked for me.
The best deodorant I’ve ever used. No more worry about body odour 🙂
I’ve been suffering from eczema since 2010 and at times my hands would bleed it was so bad. Since using your Aloe Vera Body Butter I didn’t only notice a huge improvement but it’s almost entirely gone. Thank you! It’s been such a confidence boost not having terrible looking hands!
Recently in Nelson and I got the deodorant stick even though I was skeptical. The lady at the market was so lovely and passionate about the product, plus they had a guarantee, so I thought I’ll get it and send it back if no good then – nothing to lose. I have lost mine to my husband who loves it, so I am now going to buy more for myself and a few friends. And I can’t resist getting the travel pack as well. Thank you for your dedication to your product – the best I have ever used especially on those busy days and I’m still dry and don’t smell :-)
I will take this opportunity to say again that this deodorant has truly been a revelation for me in terms of eliminating the body odour smell that no other natural deodorant I had tried previously could do. Thank you so much! And along with your helpful assistance about how to best apply to avoid the white residue on my clothing, it makes me so much more confident to be out in the world, playing sport, hugging my friends, wearing my favourite clothes 2 days in a row!
I just can’t thank you enough! I bought your products from the Home Show in Nelson – my skin feels so alive! And the best part is all my clogged pores are gone :-)
I happened across your stall at the Nelson Market and bought a tube of your Natural Deodorant. I got it for my wife to try who’s always struggled with slightly overactive perspiration. She says that it’s amazing and really works!!! We are delighted! Thank you so much.
Body Butter: I have always had issues with sensitive skin, especially on my legs after shaving. Most moisturisers give me a rash or make me itchy. I have not had any problems with these, I have tried the Aloe Vera and the Jasmine scents, both are fantastic.
Frankincense Face Oil: I have been using this every evening for the past couple of weeks; I wake up in the morning with my face feeling very rejuvenated and moisturised. It hasn’t caused any break outs on my acne prone skin (I think it may have actually reduced my breakouts). I highly recommend this product.
The things that are important to me in skin care are covered in full by Three Gems! The ingredients are few and 100% natural, no animal testing and best of all the products have excellent skin benefits. I’ve found the Body Butter make my skin on body and face feel soft and non-greasy, the Frankincense Face Oil I can use either on a evening or daytime as it just soaks into my skin. The Witch Hazel Toner is the best I’ve ever used, it’s refreshing, non-drying and has helped prevent breakouts. The Lip Balm is such a treat to use and keeps my lips moist and non-chapped.
I always get many compliments about my skin and I feel very happy that I’m using the most natural products I can with the best benefits I have ever experienced from beauty products! Many thanks Three Gems.
I have been using store bought deodorant for many years; lately my body started to react against it and I was looking for an alternative.
I entered a competition to win a goodie bag (including a natural deodorant) from the “Three Gems” company;
And to my surprise I won!
I tried the deodorant straight away, with some reserve I must say… But I was amazed as it Really works!! So much so that I purchased a deodorant as soon as the sample one was finished!! No more rash or stingy pains on my underarms! My skin is soft!
The rest of the products I tried are also fantastic. I adore the Frankincense oil!!
My 6 year old son loves the Aloe Vera body butter as he had such dry skin around his lips and it was red and rough. I could never get him to apply nor keep any ointment on until we tried the Three Gems Aloe Vera Body Butter – now he keeps asking for it. His problem cleared up really quickly and there were no complaints from him. I highly recommend it. I have also used many of the other products and it is a great comfort to know that there are no chemicals to worry about.
