Plantæ Certified Organic Skincare Enters Iconic Dunedin Department Store

One of New Zealand’s fastest growing premium organic skincare brands,Plantæ Certified Organic Skincare, has announced it will be sold in Dunedin through established Otago department store, Arthur Barnett.

Launched by renowned Nelson-based organic skincare formulator, Carol Priest, alongside her three daughters (Fiona, Jacinta and Janelle) in December 2012, Plantæ has quickly grown in popularity throughout New Zealand and in international markets - including Europe, Canada, Australia and Korea.

Bettina Seaward from Arthur Barnett says she is excited about bringing Plantæ to the store’s clientele.

Plantæ’s organic skincare products are all entirely certified organic by BioGro, New Zealand’s leading organic certifier, so the high quality and standards of the range is very much aligned with other brands we stock,” says Bettina.

“There has been a growing demand for premium organic skincare here in Dunedin and we expect Plantæ will be very well received by our customers.”

Plantæ Founder and Formulator, Carol Priest, says acquiring Arthur Barnett as a stockist is a significant achievement for the company.

Arthur Barnett is highly regarded in the South Island, with a long standing reputation for providing exceptional quality fashion and beauty products, so having Plantæ there is a great fit for our brand and we are excited about the opportunity,” says Ms Priest.

Plantæ Certified Organic Skincare was launched at Arthur Barnett earlier last month in Dunedin.
