one&co is only a few years old but it is actually the baby of a past business I had called 1Skin Solution. Originally I wanted my own skincare line and started making promotional lip balms to fund it. This was back in 2011 and I was the patient coordinator at The Dentist at 70 Pitt Street when we came up with the idea. I had made lip balms in pots before to sell at the markets with my bath and body products. Dr Tijana Fisher (the principal Dentist at the time) was very keen to help me with my dream so I made up some samples and we eventually chose a mini balm and a simple clear label with the logo. My First promotional lip balm was made 🙂
The promotional lip balms are received by every patient at their hygienist appointment. Everyone loved them and told us so. We had a business coach within the practice at the time and she was also impressed so I designed a brochure and got it printed.
My humble beginnings
As my business grew (and improved) I decided to leave the practice but my daughter Ariel and I still visit regularly for our dental appointments. My daughter has Down syndrome and they are all amazing with her. She loves to visit the dentist!
1skin Solution bath & body never really got off the ground. I had my child and my priorities shifted. I kept making lip balms and added the candles to keep it simple. Now that Ariel is growing up I will extend the product line at tahi&co.
