Triumph & Disaster's Dion Nash comes from a long line of boxers and tailors, boxers on his dads side, tailors on his mom's. Needless to say he grew up well dressed and prepared to defend himself, but the contradiction was never lost on him.
Inspired by a line from Rudyard Kipling's poem "IF"—‘if you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same’—he set out to create a company whose philosophy would be to use the best of science combined with the best of nature to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work.
They use 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.
They believe that the future of sustainable business is a path of integrity and honesty and that customers deserve at least this much from the brands they support.
