Unique Botanicals

Founder's Formula award-winning skin care is created with potent, newly researched Australian Botanicals.

We are excited and passionate in our drive to create innovative formulations that make a real difference to skin.

We cannot overstate how amazing Australian Botanicals are proving to be. So many Australian plants are found nowhere else on the planet and contain unique compounds with multiple benefits for skin.

Australia's harsh environment means that our plants have evolved to contain exceptionally high levels of calming and hydrating phyto-compounds.

Founder's Formula is a proud leader in the emerging Australian GREEN BEAUTY movement. Since launching in 2021 we have won 35 international awards including 12 Gold.

Australian Snake Vine

Australian Snake Vine (Hibbertia scandens) grows only in the sand dunes of eastern Australia.

Traditionally used as an important bush medicine remedy, Snake Vine contains potent anti-oxidants in the form of catechins 100 times more potent than Vitamin C and 25 times more potent than Vitamin E.

Finger Lime Caviar

Native to the rainforests of east coast Australia, Finger Lime (Citrus australasica) is full of phyto-actives, including Vitamin C.

Exceptionally high in Ferulic Acid, a powerful anti-oxidant that helps stabilise Vitamin C, Finger Lime is the perfect companion to Kakadu Plum in our Wild-Harvested Kakadu Plum Vitamin C Serum.


Waratah (Telopea speciosissima) is not only a beautiful and exotic looking flower, but it also has high levels of phyto-compounds beneficial for skin - amines, alkaloids, adenise, anthocyanin, tryptophan, chlorogenic acid, caffeoyl-quinic acid and terpenoids. Meaning, in plain English - Waratah has multiple pro-aging benefits including reducing the appearance of wrinkles and calming irritation through strong anti-inflammatory action.

Kakadu Plum

Kakadu Plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana) has the highest amount of Vitamin C of any known plant on earth.

The insoluble fibres and companion calming phyto-actives buffer the Vitamin C in the formula so that it is less irritating to the skin than are synthetic forms of Vitamin C.

Founder's Formula source our Kakadu Plum Extract in a Joint Venture with Aboriginal women in the Northern Territory.


Australian Banksias are remarkable flowers, packed with antioxidants and glycosides that repair skin and build collagen.

Banksias are found across the Australian bush, mainly in dry, coastal areas. At Founder's Formula we preference flowers that are wild-harvested and as such are highly potent.
