Big Blue Cosmetica

Skincare & artisan soaps lovingly handcrafted in Naarm, formulated by a chem major & native botanical nerd. Low waste packaging & local ingredients.

Tina is the founder and formulater behind big blue cosmetica; a chemistry major, proud plant mama, avid upcycler and DIY enthusiast passionate about protecting our environment and crafting skincare that is as much a treat for the senses as it is a treat for your skin.

Her range of natural skincare products are formulated to be ultra nourishing and gentle for sensitive skin with a strong focus on using locally sourced and sustainably harvested ingredients to reduce the carbon footprint within the supply chain while championing native botanicals and supporting local and especially indigenous producers.

Waste reduction is at the forefront of her brand ethos too, with all packaging being either home fully compostable or recyclable - all empty bottles and tins can even be returned in store to be cleaned, sterilised and refilled!

Tested on people not animals, lovingly handmade in Naarm / Melbourne.
