Our Milestones

Parrs Products Ltd is a 100% New Zealand owned family company established in 1951 by Des and Margaret Parr in Auckland, New Zealand. It started as a small cottage industry when Margaret first manufactured dolls dressed in native costume. Merging with Maori Reflections, a souvenir retailer owned and operated by Greg and Janet Parr in the 1980's, the company is now managed by Greg along with his wife, and two daughters. The company has continued to grow exponentially, and now occupies its own warehouse, office and showroom and is proud to be one of the largest souvenir manufacturers/distributors in New Zealand.

An integral part of the company is the product we offer, all of which is a result of our exceptional, innovative team. They are constantly researching and monitoring worldwide trends, to develop products that ensure we remain one of New Zealand's major souvenir companies. Of utmost importance is the quality of our products, and we ensure they are manufactured to the highest possible standards. For over 20 years, Parrs Products Ltd has become renowned for their New Zealand made skincare products, all of which feature key naturally occurring ingredients unique to our country.

We were the first to realise the benefits of using Thermal Mud, Manuka Honey and Kiwifruit in the beauty industry. What originally started in the 1980's as an industry first experiment by producing a bar of soap with Thermal Mud from Rotorua, Parrs Products Ltd has established itself an industry leading reputation. This on-going success has allowed us to discover further the many applications of these natural ingredients; while continuing to expand and enhance the selection, quality and benefits of our skincare ranges.

We thank you for your interest in our products, and welcome you along as we continue on our journey showcasing the beauty of New Zealand to the world.
