Hei Niue – honey from The Rock
Visitors to Hei Niue booth at Pasifika 2013 were like bees to honey.
No wonder: the Hei Niue Beauty products contained Niue Honey and there were samples of Niue Honey to taste. <!--more-->The sweet smelling booth at the edge of the Niue Village at the region’s biggest festival of its kind was an oasis from the hot sun where visitors were greeted with offers of a lovely suga scrub and some soothing hand cream.

They were very happy with the exposure and positive feedback from those who visited the booth. Visitors seemed impressed by all products and were keen to hear more.
“All our skincare products have the Niue honey that is high in antioxidants, antibacterial & anti-aging properties. Vitamins A, C & E have been added to the products and our moisturizing lotions have proven to aid eczema, acne and burns.”
The two locally made Niue products are the 20 minute Honey Mask and Suka Scrub, whilst the creams including the lastest products – Exfoliator & Face Cream are mixed by a New Zealand company for quality and sterile control.
While in New Zealand, TaniRose also attended a two-day training for hair and makeup for all occasions and two days in Wellington for nail training – acrylics and gel nails to enhance their business based in Niue, Hei Niue Spa Services.
The Hei Niue product range had an auspicious launch with two products at the Niue Constitution National Showday in October 2011. They also began Hei Niue Pamper Sessions Services the same month. Since that time, three more beauty products have added to the range and last August, Hei Niue moved into small office premises at the Niue Government Administration Building. So far they have had 345 clients of which 161 were from the new outlet.
The entrepreneurs have grown their business without funding assistance and despite the limited resources the popularity of the products has grown. Next month the Hei Niue product range will be available for purchase online.
