When it comes to Indigenous-owned and founded beauty brands in Australia, we are truly spoilt for choice. With many brands using traditional practices as well as native ingredients to create products, we have the ability to purchase beauty essentials that have centuries of knowledge and tradition within them.

Supporting First Nations’ businesses is incredibly important as it helps to close the racial wealth gap, while also strengthening local economies where these products are made. And, it allows you to celebrate and appreciate Indigenous culture, which is something all Australians should be doing on a daily basis. The next time you need to update your skincare routine, or if you’re in the market to try a new beauty product, consider shopping from one of these First Nations businesses.

Bush Medijina

Translating traditional Indigenous native botanical knowledge into modern skincare, Bush Medijina is “governed by the strong Indigenous women on our board,” reads the website. Situated in Angurugu, a remote island in the Northern Territory, Bush Medijina creates a number of beauty products including body butter, shower gels, body scrubs and hair oils — all made with native botanicals.


Founded by an Indigenous family a part of the Bundjalung tribe of Northern New South Wales, Juddarnje uses some of nature’s best ingredients including botanicals, essential oils and clays to create natural and safe skincare products. With an extensive line of products, you can shop creams, cleansing milks, soaps and body lotions.


Based in Mudgee in New South Wales, Indigiearth is a 100 percent Aboriginal owned and established business that sells “premium bush foods made from authentic Australian native products that are ethically sourced and sustainably harvested”. Skincare products created from native ingredients are also a large focus of Indigiearth with clay face masks, body custards and serums containing traditional ingredients like Davidson plum and finger lime.
