Best of Natural Awards 2022

Are you a natural winner? Enter the 2022 Best of Natural Awards and find out!

Good magazine is excited to announce the return of the Best of Natural Awards in partnership with HealthPost.


After a two-year hiatus due to Covid interruptions, the return of the Best of Natural Awards in 2022 is good news indeed and sets the standard for excellence in the natural, ethical and environmental space.


The Best of Natural Awards are about championing the best natural products and celebrating those with the highest quality ingredient, ethical and environment standards, which is why Good magazine’s partnership with HealthPost is perfectly aligned.


As a responsible retailer, HealthPost is committed to helping people on their health, wellness and sustainable journey, which mirrors Good magazine’s values.


Ever since HealthPost began delivering natural wellness products in 1988, caring for people and planet has been second nature for the company.


This includes adhering to strict ingredient standards and providing information and transparency so consumers can make informed choices, which cements HealthPost’s role as a responsible retailer/industry leader in New Zealand.


“As an Aotearoa-owned family business and certified Ethical Employer, we’re deeply committed to having a lasting, positive impact on the wellbeing of people and our environment through restoring nature, supporting community, and improving our industry,” explains HealthPost sustainability lead Lucy Butler.


This year, HealthPost and Good want to celebrate not just the best of the best but also up and coming Aotearoa brands who are making positive, sustainable change.




The Best of Natural Awards will be judged on a combination of criteria – the best of all the stuff that matters.


Winners will be showcased editorially in Good magazine and promoted on both Good
and HealthPost’s digital platforms.


Plus, there’s the opportunity to be stocked by HealthPost, which offers Aotearoa’s largest range of natural health and wellness products to help New Zealanders live well, live lightly
and live by their values.


Whether you are an established brand or new to the market, we’d love to hear from you.

Rachel Grunwell

Wellness expert (wellness coach/speaker/yoga + mindfulness teacher), award-winning journalist and author of Balance: Food, Health + Happiness, Rachel has 28 years’ experience in the media industry as a writer and columnist for a string of New Zealand’s biggest media organisations. She still writes for magazines in the niche of wellness, though these days, she’s more often the one being interviewed by media as a wellness expert. She runs her own company, Inspired Health NZ, and runs retreats to help Kiwis with relatable tools on how to be more resilient, healthier and happier. Over the past decade, Rachel has found herself viewed by companies and brands as a “wellness influencer” and has loved trying lots of new products on the market. This has led to her partnering with several brands that care about elevating the wellbeing of Kiwis. Rachel gives a stuff about not stuffing up the planet, and as a self-confessed “girly-girl”, she only backs brands that deliver on an exceptional experience too.


Sara Corlieson

The founder and entrepreneur behind Tailor Skincare, Sara started Tailor in her kitchen and grew it into one of New Zealand’s most loved natural skincare brands. Sara’s early adoption of a digital-first approach with Tailor Skincare blazed a trail in the social media marketing space. But it was Sara’s passion for R&D and natural ingredient discovery that grew a loyal online following and led her to develop Tailor Renew – New Zealand’s first ever probiotic skincare along with many other multi-award-winning natural skincare products loved by thousands of Kiwis. With the successful sale of Tailor Skincare earlier this year Sara is expanding her horizons into the sustainable cultivation and optimisation of natural ingredients.
