Who We Are
Our founder, Lucy Strachan, hails from Bonnie Scotland and travelled extensively for a number of years before falling in love with the beauty, serenity and peace of St Kilda, Melbourne. Discovering a flair for mixing scents and having a fierce passion for natural products and developing a business that was environmentally conscious, Lucy founded Bruadar.
As someone with hyper sensitive skin, Lucy has gone through life spending lots of money and time experimenting with different kinds of skin care products. She found that sometimes the more expensive products actually caused her more issues and were not ethically produced. After completing her studies in Beauty Therapy and becoming a fully trained Beauty Therapist, she realised the benefits of incorporating natural products into her skin care routine.
After speaking to other people from all over the world via Facebook groups, webinars and social media interactions, and conducting her own research through academic journals and cosmetic reviews, she realised that she was not alone - this was an issue and a problem that many people from all backgrounds, ethnicities and skin tones were experiencing.
Still never finding the products that worked for her, she decided to combine her knowledge and training and develop a range of anti ageing products that catered to sensitive skin types for all ethnic backgrounds. She wanted to create the solution that offers a wider range of choice! She wanted to align her brand with her own personal values and needs of sustainability, inclusiveness and cruelty free production.
Bruadar is an exciting and innovative indie beauty and wellness brand. We specialise in Australian native botanical anti ageing skin care products for sensitive skin.
We also hand craft a range of wellness products including palm oil free soy candles and shower spa steamers to enhance your beauty regime experience.
A Scots-Gaelic word meaning 'to dream', Bruadar captures perfectly the essence of our products. Each product is lovingly made by hand using only the finest locally sourced and sustainable products. Our products will transport you to exotic destinations, easing your body, mind and soul from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
