After being overwhelmed for choice while standing in the vitamin aisle of the chemist, we decided to find an alternative. We wanted a simple and effective product that didn't try and bamboozle us with fancy ingredients we'd never heard of. Enter Tonik, - 100% natural and no nonsense!
Tell us a bit about Tonik. Where did it all begin? And what was your vision when you created the business?
The Tonik is a newly launched Australian brand dedicated to nourishing people from the inside out, are setting the perfect juxtaposition within the health and beauty industry by taking age old natural remedies, and putting a modern spin on them. The launch of Tonik was over 18 months in the making. I wanted to solve my issue of not having access to my two favourite elixirs when I was travelling. Knowing how much these magic elixirs have changed my life personally, in all kinds of ways both aesthetically and health wise, we wanted to bring them to the wider market in a way that didn’t make people cringe every morning. We also knew it required a total challenge of the way the health industry currently operates. Et voila!
How do you go about sourcing ingredients for, and creating your Toniks?
I spend the majority of my time on shoots in the South Pacific, and feel a kinship with islands. We are in the process of sourcing from the South Pacific as the goal of Tonik’s philanthropic journey is to give back and support local farms in the island nations. The South Pacific is so close to our hearts and we really want to support the growth and development of sustainable farming in these areas.
The other half of Tonik is actually my father who is a Pharmacist and has a real interest in Natural health, to be able to work with him on bringing these two current Toniks to market has been really exciting.
