Rustic Peppermint is dedicated to crafting vegan skincare products ranging from essential deodorant pastes to aromatic mists and luxurious oils. Their products and ingredients are predominantly organic, always 100% natural, and vegan-friendly. With an unwavering commitment to sustainability, Rustic Peppermint emphasizes reducing environmental impact by urging customers to reuse and recycle.
Their journey began in 2013 when the founders transitioned to a vegan lifestyle. Alarmed by the prevalence of animal-based ingredients and the widespread use of brands that tested on animals or used synthetic components, they ventured into creating their own products. Starting with lip balms, they meticulously tested formulations until they were confident of their efficacy. Today, each formulation is handcrafted with care on the Gold Coast.
Behind the brand is Steph, an entrepreneur with a lifelong connection to the skin and hair industry. Having begun her career in hairdressing and traversing roles from managing salons to representing global companies, her true passion blossomed with Rustic Peppermint. Each product is a testament to her dedication to natural ingredients and cruelty-free processes. Alongside her is Naissa, a multifaceted genius skilled in various areas from computer science to woodworking.
Together, they bring to Australia a line of skincare products that resonate with eco-consciousness and ethical responsibility.
