Triumph & Disaster’s YLF Body Wash is a genuine ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ wash that delivers a pleasant, slightly medicinal, Sandalwood and Neroli infused hit on the nose.
YLF is rich in Argan oil, Green tea, Vitamin E and Kawakawa extract. It is a wash for those with too little time and too much to get done.
Packed full of Vitamin E and Omega 3, 6 and 9, Argan Oil from the kernels of Morocco’s Argan tree (Argania Spinosa) is seen as a wonder ingredient for skin and hair with its amazing healing, antioxidant and moisturising properties that combat problem skin and fight free radicals, whilst nourishing and hydrating skin and hair. A genuine all-rounder!
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
1. The perfect all-rounder – YLF is T&D’s head, shoulders, knees and toes. Meaning it can do it all, wash the body, clean the hair and even lather for a shave.
2. Hydrates the skin; T&D utilises the smoothing and hydrating effects of Argan oil and plant-based surfactants.
3. It smells great – but not be too strong or overpowering, because you are in the shower, not a car wash. The sweet combination of Neroli and Sandalwood delivers on this herbal, woody promise.
4. It’s nutrient-rich – nothing ensures this more than the combination of Argan oil, Kawakawa and Green tea leaf extract.
YLF actively protects the skin’s natural lipid balance and avoids stripping the skin of its moisture and nutrients, it is free of denatured alcohol and concentrated menthols – Triumph & Disaster does not use these ingredients ever.

ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded in 2011 by former cricket player and New Zealander, Dion Nash, Triumph & Disaster is a skin and haircare line that combines the best of nature and the best of science to produce naturally derived but scientifically engineered products that work.
The name was inspired by a poem close to Nash’s heart, Rudyard Kipling’s “If”, which contains the line: “if you can meet with Triumph & Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same…” This encapsulates the ethos of the brand – humility, honour, risk and reward. They are the values that moulded a brand capable of reminding us that acts of ritual and preparation are worthy endeavours and that healthy skin is something to aspire to and be proud of.
With a focus on sustainability, integrity and honesty, Triumph & Disaster is picky about its ingredients. They use local indigenous ingredients such as Horopito oil and Ponga fern extract blended with scientifically proven and natural ingredients from around the globe, such as clay from Australia, Jojoba extract from Mexico and Tamanu oil from Polynesia.
The brand aims to respect nature, utilise science, create products of ritual and tools for preparation – so we can treat Triumph & Disaster, those two imposters, just the same.
