In her previous life, Pip likes to joke that she was Cleopatra: a beauty junkie obsessed with bathing in natural elixirs.
In reality, she was born in New Zealand, in the small town of Pukekohe, and raised among glass beakers and metal scales, with her dad being a chemist. Years later, Pip was busy working in the creative industry and realized it’s kinda hard to lug around glass bottles of coconut oil and apple cider vinegar and thought: Wouldn’t it be easier to pop them in pill form?
And, boom, the idea for Tonik was born.
It's your turn! Fire any questions at us!
Please can you make a Omega vegan capsule?
Pip: Tonik No. 4 Hemp Seed Oil Capsules are vegan. We are currently working towards vegan capsules for all of our Tonik's.
Is taking Tonik No. 2 Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules the same as drinking Apple Cider Vinegar?
Pip: No, it's even better! Our formula is a 6x concentrated formula containing "the mother" and none of the good stuff is harmed in the making.
What made you launch Tonik and all the different natural supplements?
Pip: I was frustrated! I got sick of the taste and how it made me feel. My dentist told me that my ACV addiction was ruining my teeth. I wanted an easier way to take Apple Cider Vinegar with no foulness basically.
Do you think it would help with weight management? I heard it's good for that.
Pip: While we are not allowed to make any claims I can speak from first hand experience and the answer is yes it can/did for me. I swear by natural elixirs and that is the exact reason I launched the brand - to make it easier to take them as the benefits are simply amazing.
Is there any taste? I can't stand the taste of Apple Cider and Coconut Oil.
Pip: None! All of Tonik's capsules have no taste! We hear ya! (How bad is ACV?)
Are all your natural supplements pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly?
Pip: All our Tonik’s are derived from natural ingredients, but we recommend expecting and breastfeeding mums to consult their individual health practitioners prior to taking Tonik when it comes to your individual nutritional aspects.
