Natural Skincare that goes deeper...

Gracious Minds was created as a means to encourage self-connection, mental-wellbeing and radiant skin. We create natural, quality rich skincare formulations which  utilise Australian native extracts and POWERFUL botanical actives to protect, brighten and repair sensitive skin.

Natural Skincare that goes deeper.

Most topical skincare products work on the skin's surface, which is great for hydration however for issues like fine lines, stimulating collagen and improving the skins barrier we need to go deeper. The epidermis is the top layer of skin, and the dermis is the middle, lower layer of skin. There are some ingredients that penetrate to the dermis and we include these in our products.

As an Australian made skincare company we believe in the healing powers of Australian native botanicals. Australian native flora adapts to the most demanding environments. Because of this, they contain more antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals than other typical flora and fauna.

Gracious Minds skincare products do not contain harsh chemicals that can irritate or damage the skin. Additionally, they are more environmentally friendly because they are made using sustainable farming practices and do not contribute to the pollution of air, water, or soil.

But more than skin care, Gracious Minds was created as a means to inspire and lift others, encourage self-care, mental-wellbeing and a deep connection to oneself.

We are continually inspired by our beautiful land and respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land we govern, the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Boon Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Founder Message

As i approached turning 30 i started to reflect on the past decade of my life and the mental illnesses that had plagued my 20s. From depression to anxiety and drinking in excess to mask any hard feelings. I knew I needed to start from scratch and entering a new decade of my life seemed like the perfect place to begin again.

I started exploring mindfulness, spirituality, nature and slow self-care whilst taking the time that I needed to figure out who I really was. 

I decided to honour the land in which I was born and raised, working with Australian farmers and an Australian skincare laboratory to formulate an all natural Australian skincare line that goes deeper than surface level; powerful botanicals that work hard for sensitive skin. Having a strong brand message around mindfulness, self-care and well-being was of huge importance to me from the beginning and so I thought the name Gracious Minds was truly fitting. 

Fast forward to 2023, Gracious Minds is now 2 years old and a Worldwide brand with many retailers across the globe from Sweden to Canada, the UK and USA. 

My goal for the next 5 years is to continue to be a leader in the Australian skincare space with innovative formulas and positive self care messaging, all whilst taking Gracious Minds to a whole new level. Thank you for being here. 

Love and Light,
