The meaning of Toi Toi

Toi Toi : to encourage, inspire or motivate (Maori)

Toi Toi Toi:  to ward off bad luck, like 'break a leg' or 'touch wood' (English and German)

Toi: one of the meanings of 'you' (French)


We are a NZ owned family business and are the growers and creators of the natural loofah products featured on our website. Although we have recently launched Toi Toi Body Care (April 2019), we have been working on research and development for over the past five years. Growing loofah (luffa) on a commercial scale in the NZ climate is challenging but we choose to do this for two reasons:

  1. So we can do our part to rid NZ of the awful plastic loofahs (shower poufs)
  2. So we can guarantee our customers the most natural and purest products.
I am passionate about not using palm oil in any of the products we create and have chosen a minimal packaging approach, what little packaging we have is biodegradable and able to be composted at home.
