Tribe Skincare | Australian-grown skincare for sensitive skin

Kayla Houlihan is the founder of Tribe Skincare a natural, vegan-friendly, Australian-made skincare range, based in Torquay.

It was while  running her own skin clinic that Kayla noticed a gap in the market for ‘skincare for sensitive skin’. While there were some skincare products or lines for sensitive skin, no brand was completely focusing on. 

And so, Kayla created Tribe Skincare and bootstrapped her way to $8m+ turnover in her first five years, without any external investment or big startup dollars. 

Tribe now has over  50,000 repeat customers and more than a 60% return customer rate  –  3 times above industry average!

From the original four products the brand is quickly becoming one of Australia’s favoutites for sensitive skin. 

From the beginning I wanted it to be a brand for Australian’s with sensitive skin.”
