Dion Nash, the founder of Triumph and Disaster comes from a long line of boxers and tailors, boxers on his fathers, tailors on his mothers.
Needless to say, he grew up well dressed and prepared to defend himself.
After an illustrious career playing cricket both domestically and internationally for New Zealand, an idea for a range of skincare products was born.
The very act of daily rituals and preparation are worthy endeavours and that healthy skin is something to aspire to and be proud of.
Then, a tattered old poem that his father had given him years before was uncovered in the bottom of an old chest and he read the line, ‘if you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same’, Dion knew he had the name of his brand.
Triumph & Disaster's philosophy is to use the best of science combined with the best of nature to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work.
They work with local indigenous ingredients such as Horopito oil and Ponga fern extract blended with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the globe, such as clay from Australia, Jojoba extract from Mexico and Tamanu oil from Polynesia.
Finally, like we do at Mitchell McCabe, Dion believes that the future of sustainable business is a path of integrity and honesty and those customers deserve at least this much from the brands they support.
They aim to respect nature, utilize science, and create products of ritual and tools for preparation - so we can all treat Triumph & Disaster, those two imposters just the same.
