It’s no secret that we put up with some harsh elements in Australia. Dorothea Mackellar wasn’t lying!
That’s why our nourishing Australian skin creams are packed with powerful active ingredients like Manuka, Papaya and Lavender. Our harsh Australian sun also makes us quite privy to sun damage and skin ageing. So, our traditional Australian placenta creams are specifically designed to boost skin rejuvenation and collagen production.
Our Lanolin cream also gets taken home in bulk! Lanolin is a powerful emollient that helps dead skin cells fall off and aids your skin to retain water, leaving it feeling smoother and softer. Our top brands like Lanocreme Placenta Cream and Ascool Placenta cream are sure bets for great Australian gifts!
We can’t think of a better gift for kids. These shy little sleepy heads must be the most photographed and cuddled animals in Australia!
