About us


Natural lipsticks & natural mineral cosmetics made and sold by Cherry Brown in the Huon Valley, Tasmania, Australia. Everything is made from only the best natural ingredients including extra-virgin oils and mineral colours.  All products are free from chemicals, animal products and synthetic dyes. No palm oil is used in any of our products and they are all suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

 We pride ourselves that all Cherry Brown products are of high quality and yet are competitively priced and represent excellent value for money.

Cherry Brown started experimenting with making lipsticks some years ago after she could not find a product that suited her needs at a reasonable price. After practicing on herself and various friends for awhile, Cherry decided that maybe she could share her creations with others and she then started having a small stall at her local Cygnet Market. Comments from customers about the quality and price of Cherry Brown products prompted her to invest more time and energy and she started up as a casual stallholder at Hobart’s famous Salamanca Market in August 2011, before become a permanent stallholder in September 2014.  Cherry Brown received many requests for her products to be available on-line, so this on-line shop aims to broaden the availability of her products.  Please give them a try!

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What do Cherry Brown products contain?

Cherry Brown products contain only the purest ingredients, including seed and nut oils and waxes and natural mineral colours.  There are no petroleum derived ingredients in any of our products.  Full ingredients lists are available on the individual  product pages. 

Are Cherry Brown products suitable for vegans?

Yes!  Cherry Brown products are entirely vegan.  In fact Cherry herself is vegan so you can rest assured that Cherry Brown understands what this means.  No beeswax is used in any of our products.

 Are Cherry Brown Products Cruelty Free?

Yes!  Cherry Brown products have been accredited as cruelty free by Choose Cruelty Free Australia.  Neither Cherry Brown nor its suppliers undertake any testing on animals.

 Are colours not listed on the website still available?

Cherry Brown has made a lot of colours over time. If your colour is not currently listed on the website please e-mail us at Cherry@cherrybrown.com.au to enquire about availiability.  We may be able to make it for you if I do not have any in stock.

Why are there no bright red lipsticks available?

This is probably the most common question of all!  Bright red lipstick is generally made using synthetic dyes (which are not good for us) or carmine (extracted from crushed beetles).  The reds available using natural minerals tend towards a more natural red, moving towards a more orange or blue red.

 A word about colour...

Every effort is made to ensure photographs and descriptions match the products, however every computer monitor is different and colours may vary from those seen on your screen.  If you have any questions about colour, please do not hesitate to ask.
