What makes Skincare Business Foundations special:


I started Skincare Business Foundations in early 2018, as I saw a real opportunity to help skincare brand owners who were struggling with business topics such as labels, pricing and marketing claims. Some cosmetic regulatory consultancies seemed like they’d be out of the price range a skincare startup could afford and not very personal. So I set out to build a brand that was affordable and where clients could get to know me before engaging in my services. Not only do I support brand owners with services such as Label Reviews and Marketing Claims Reviews, I also offer time-saving compliance and pricing guides for those who prefer to DIY. Plus a signature course on how to start a skincare brand in Australia.


Your role/part:

I am the Founder of Skincare Business Foundations. With degrees in Business and Psychology and a 10-year+ corporate background in risk management, auditing and compliance, I now combine my business know-how with the insights and knowledge gained from starting my own skincare brand to help others build a solid business foundation.

In my role I wear many hats – cosmetic regulatory consultant, business mentor, marketer, website designer, bookkeeper – but it’s helping my valued clients that I love the most.

I also run the Natural Skincare Makers Australia group on Facebook, which is an active online support community for Australian cosmetic brand owners.


How have your studies helped progress:


I studied a Certificate in Cosmetic Regulatory Essentials through IPCS to formalise the industry knowledge I acquired through previously having my own skincare business. The studies gave me the confidence to provide accurate information to my clients so that they can have compliant cosmetics businesses.
