About Us

At Nourished Skin Co, we transform local, 100% Certified Organic ingredients into nurturing, natural, vegan skincare. From our home on the Mornington Peninsula we create plant based, clean, cruelty-free, chemical-free skincare for conscious living.

An Australian-owned and mumma-owned business, Nourished Skin Co is devoted to sustainability, conservation and clean beauty. Our organic skincare products are made with recycled and recyclable materials - our lip balm tubes, pouches and bags are biodegradable.

Nourished Skin Co was born from a love of all things natural by Mornington Peninsula Mum, Kate Basset. For years, owner and founder Kate Basset searched for truly natural skincare to cure her allergic reactions to skincare and beauty products, but found there were limited options on the market that delivered the life changing results she was after. 

As a child in the 80s, Kate was exposed to natural therapies like naturopathy, reiki and even kombucha growing under the stairs of their family home. This sparked her interest in all things natural which led to her studies of sciences, environmental management and later native animal conservation. All of which would play a role in her skincare business down the track.

Kate started slowly by researching and combining plant oils with great results. After moving to the Mornington Peninsula in 2018 from Melbourne she was inspired by her love of the ocean and beautiful landscape to create the brand Nourished Skin Co. After her daughter was born her passion for natural skincare became her motivation to launch her products. With 10 years experience working in management and training for one of the world's leading luxury brands, Kate understands what it takes to design products that deliver on quality, effectiveness and ethical practices.

All our organic beauty products are 100% plant based, review-backed, and effective. Our products are free from parabens, PEGS, sulphates, mineral oils, GMO, synthetic colours, phenoxyethanol, paraffin oil and irritating ingredients. All our original formulas are first tested in our tight-knit community and by Kate who suffers from sensitivities. We love our natural vegan skincare for all skin types and all stages of life, and we want to share the goodness!

And because we love our natural environment and local community, a portion of profits are used to donate trees to local conservation group, Mornington Peninsula Koala Conservation!
