Trilogy has an international reputation for producing ethical, sustainable, high-performance natural skincare. With over a decade of research, development and product innovation, we make products that not only perform better; they are better.
Trilogy launched its first five rosehip oil products in 2002. In a world of ‘high-science’ synthetic skincare and old-fashioned, apothecary-style natural products, sisters, and Trilogy founders, Catherine de Groot and Sarah Gibbs saw an opportunity to bridge the gap between high-performance and the natural world.
It was inspired by their discovery of the amazing skin-loving properties of rosehip oil. An incredibly effective natural alternative to synthetic skincare ingredients, rosehip oil delivers real, visible results.
With two smart Kiwi girls at the helm, and pure Certified Organic Rosehip Oil as both flagship product and signature ingredient, Trilogy began its mission to change the face of natural skincare.
Trilogy lives for product innovation. Performance matters. Products are created from unique blends of the purest natural plant oils and active botanical extracts, working in perfect harmony to restore and maintain the natural health, vitality and radiance of skin.
As the first New Zealand skincare brand to achieve NATRUE Natural Cosmetics certification, Trilogy has very strict policies for sourcing ingredients. This certification provides an independent guarantee that a product is authentically natural and cruelty-free, to one of the world’s most transparent standards.
This means Trilogy only uses natural and organic plant-based ingredients, soft manufacturing processes and environmentally friendly practices. The NATRUE logo also means:
- No animal testing
- No synthetic fragrances and colours
- No genetically modified ingredients
- No petroleum-derived products
- No silicone oils and derivatives
- No irradiation of end products and botanical ingredients
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+ are also certified organic by New Zealand’s leading organic certification body, BioGro New Zealand Ltd.

What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
For us, sustainability is a journey. Before it reaches you, each bottle, jar or tube of oil, cream and lotion has completed a journey from pre-production microbiological testing, through mixing and finishing, to micro-testing, quality assurance, bottling, sampling, packaging and shipping before it reaches the store floor. Whether formulating a new product, designing packaging or transporting products around the globe, we look for ways to minimise our impact on our world.
In 2007, we became the first New Zealand skincare brand to achieve carbon neutral certification for our corporate operations. We’re always working to reduce our carbon footprint and we offset what remains. The importance we place on it helps us keep our day-to-day activity aligned with our mission for ethical, environmental and social responsibility.
Supporting and being involved in our local communities and causes we believe in is an important part of Trilogy’s culture. Whether it’s a charity, community event, play group or school activity, we like to help wherever we can.
Like you, we’re passionate about the environment, mad about animals and we like to do as much as we can in areas of humanitarian need. We’re proud to support many not-for-profit organisations across the globe. We're long-time supporters of the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation and we've donated over NZ$60,000 to help preserve orangutan habitats.
