“The OG” simple moisturiser – 100mL tin


Straightforward and honest, The OG is Treebrush Apothecary’s original hardworking moisturiser.

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.

These 100mL tins are a fantastic multi-tasking size. They’ll do you for many applications, but will still travel. They happily take a beating, and are ideal for slipping into gym / toiletry bags or on your desk at work.


Why “The OG”, though?

This formulation represents Treebrush Apothecary’s first dabble with emulsified lotions, 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 lotion 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 lotion that’s true to its roots – with few ingredients and a variety of fragrances (and an unfragranced version available too). 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.

The lightly fragranced versions provide a two-in-one kick for the efficient among us, perfect for after your gym shower or as part of your before-work ritual.

How big is this tin?

This is a hand-sized tin that sits just as happily on your bathroom vanity as it would in your gym bag. Great for post-shave, after a shower, before work/school as a skin fragrance, or as a nourishing moisturiser overnight.

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