MUNTED – “The OG” fragranced moisturiser, earlier batches


Straightforward and honest, The OG is Treebrush Apothecary’s original hardworking moisturiser. In this case: these tins of fragranced moisturiser (with a handful of unfragranced options) are munted!

This thick and rich cream uses Thun‘s kawakawa-infused sweet almond oil and shea butter as its base, and incorporates skin-loving oatmeal and (very) locally sourced New Zealand honey to form a gentle, unassuming moisturiser for the hands and body.

What is MUNTED?

The definition of “munted” here in New Zealand means something is damaged. (It can also mean someone is very drunk, but that’s not what we’re talking about here!)

In this case, these tins of moisturiser are “munted” because they’re from earlier batches and have less than half their marked shelf life remaining. As a small business, the ebbs and flows of fragrance demand can be tricky to keep up with! These ones have slipped through the inventory cracks, and will be replaced with brand new tins shortly.

Treebrush Apothecary uses rather conservative best before dates on The OG, so there’s plenty of life left in these tins – they just need to be off to their new homes ASAP. Current listings have a best before of 12/23 to 3/24, but you should get at least another 3 months out of them with clean hands.

Prefer a brand new tin instead: Check out “The OG” range here! If you’re still after a discount, there’s brand new “The OG” with damaged tins available here.

Why “The OG”, though?

This formulation represents Treebrush Apothecary’s first dabble with fragranced moisturisers, serving as a base to test a fairly large selection of fragrance oils. As the dabbling focused on the formulations themselves over time, a flatmate declared: “Can’t you just make the OG moisturiser again, with that amazing fragrance?”

…swiftly followed by “I can’t believe you’re actually calling this thing ‘The OG’…”

The final outcome of these long-term experiments is a simple, creamy moisturiser that’s true to its roots – just the necessary ingredients for a safe, skin-nourishing moisturiser with a dab of fragrance, and no more. Featuring soothing shea butter, nourishing sweet almond oil, moisture-loving New Zealand honey, and a dash of calming oatmeal, this is a creamy, whippy, surpisingly heavy-duty moisturiser that happily absorbs into and nourishes dry skin. Slap it on dry limbs, elbows and knees, exceptionally dry or overwashed hands, or from head-to-toe for well-loved skin.

What are the size options?

30mL sample: this wee tin will fit in a jacket pocket or bag, so you can take a tin of awesome fragranced moisturiser on any adventure. A great option if you’d like to try several different fragrances, or would like to take it with you on the go! This travel-safe, leakproof tin is ideal for refilling from a larger container, too.

100mL tin: this is a bigger tin that will happily keep your whole body nourished for many applications. Fits in your hand nicely or in your gym bag, hiking pack or on your desk.

200mL tin: enthusiast size! Great for divvying out into smaller tins, or by your bedside table or by the shower. If you’re keen to go head-to-toe on the regular, sharing amongst loved ones or spreading across smaller refills, this is the most economical size to go for.

To use: take a small amount of cream and massage thoroughly into dry skin. A little goes a surprisingly long way!
