Australian natural skincare brand MooGoo has launched across pharmacies in New Zealand.
According to the brand, New Zealand has one of the highest incidences of eczema in the world, affecting one in three people.
Melody Livingstone, MooGoo CEO, says the brand’s expansion into New Zealand was driven by strong interest from local customers.
“The climate is very similar to Ireland, which per capita is our biggest market outside of Australia. With so many people suffering from skin conditions, we fast-tracked our entry,” she said.
She added there has been a lot of anxiety around the pandemic which has caused a flare-up of eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions.
The company has developed 45 products to help with a range of skin conditions that can be bought online while a selected assortment will be stocked on shelves.
The brand’s range of products is naturally derived, eco-friendly and suitable for sensitive skin. Its products are used across neonatal, pediatric and oncology wards in Australia.
