My name is Malik, I am currently a stay at home mum, with my 8 month old daughter, working and building a small business called Matariki Creations. Matariki Creations stocks a range of natural home and skin care products, with a goal to share, educate and provide natural alternatives to our community. We work with a range of ingredients, from Kawakawa and Hemp seeds, to coffee grounds and sea salt. As someone with very sensitive skin myself, I knew my daughter would more than likely inherit the same sensitive skin. I decided to make the switch to more natural alternatives while pregnant with her, as my knowledge grew, so did the love too. It was then, that I knew I needed to share this journey in hope to help others seeking natural products.
Matariki Creations was launched on Instagram in January 2020, 1 month before giving birth to my girl and I have not looked back since. We now also have a Facebook platform and hopefully a website very soon. Every day, I work to slowly grow and build our business, one step at a time.
Being a part of InnoNative this year has built my confidence a lot & gives me the push to continue to step out of my comfort zone to reach each goal set.
