Australia is world famous for its beaches, its produce and its animals – lately, Australian skincare products have also been rocking the world.

Australia has a reputation for natural beauty. Surfers and families flock to Australia’s world-famous beaches from all over the world. Likewise, Australia’s unique and colourful wildlife have captured the hearts of millions worldwide. It’s no surprise then, that some of the best skincare products in the world are from Australia. Today, you are just as likely to find Australian skincare products in Tokyo as you are to stumble upon them in New York City.

Skincare brands that have gone from down under to the global stage

Going from Armadale, Melbourne to the international stage is a brand that needs no introduction. Aesop is undoubtedly the most famous skincare brand to come out of Australia since its debut in 1987. Since then, a whole host of newer brands including Go-To, Sand & Sky and Jurlique have also experienced global success with their skincare products. Some beauty brands have also formulated some of their best-selling natural skincare products using ingredients that are indigenous to Australia; such as the kakadu plum, the Australian finger lime and Australian pink clay. Though some of these ingredients are only just emerging as Australia’s best-known beauty secrets, their health benefits have been recognised by Australia’s Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. Kakadu plum, for example, is bursting with Vitamin C and antioxidants and has been used in remedies for flu.
