Our Story

Oi HISTORY

Oi started our “revolution in a box” to inspire change for our world, one tampon or pad at a time in New Zealand, Aotearoa in 2015.

Oi is a New Zealand company led by a team of passionate, holistic women who aim to make big changes. We want to stand up for what’s right and make a difference in the world, by saying No to chemicals, synthetics and toxins and saying YES to natural organic alternatives, to make a better world for everyone. Oi stands for every woman and all people with periods. Oi stands for health and Oi stands for our world.

The world is groaning under the weight of toxins, plastics and chemicals. We only have one earth – there is no Plan B. With all the amazing technology are we really getting better? Health problems continue.

It makes sense to combine great technology with natural pure ingredients.

Oi supplies products for everyday people for everyday use. Each person who chooses Oi makes a difference in their lives and for their communities. 

By choosing Oi you are saying “Yes” to transparency, honesty and integrity, “Yes” to knowing what ingredients are in your products. You are saying “Yes” to your health, “Yes” to biodegradability, “Yes” to the planet, “Yes” to comfort and protection and organics.

 

We all want to be able to say
"I made a difference, I changed a life" because girls with dreams become women with vision.

Oi and you – making a difference together
