About Ochre Sun

ochre sun is commited to ethical and sustainable manufacture of sunscreen products

Our Commitment

At Ochre Sun we manufacture the very best sunscreen infused with sustainably and ethically sourced Indigenous botanicals. We are proud of our formulation which provides the highest protection along with powerful skin-healing benefits from native Australian botanicals.

Our mission is to increase awareness of Australian Indigenous culture through sharing the wellbeing benefits of native Australian botanicals. We value the knowledge ingrained in our culture and its unique potential to provide effective solutions to the harsh Australian climate.

Our Botanicals

Kakadu Plum (Terminalia ferdinandiana)

Ethically & Sustainably Sourced

Australian Grown, Australian Manufactured

Our Impact

Our principal objective is to protect the integrity of our native botanicals. Through our sustainable sourcing commitment, we aim to create a ‘world best’ environmental approach to sun
protection. We are committed to our ethical and social responsibilities across our entire supply chain.

Thanks to your support, as our production increases so does our capacity to support our communities.

A large portion of our profits are reinvested to provide social modular housing, employment and programs for victims of Domestic Violence. This impact ensures Indigenous and vulnerable members of our communities are able to engage in employment within our business, our botanical harvests and plant extract management while they heal on country.

Empowering Indigenous Communities

Our Founder, Alana Kennedy

Alana Kennedy is a proud Waanyi Kalkatungu woman from North Queensland. Alana understands all too well the effects of the harsh North Queensland sun. So, after 7 years working in the cosmetics industry, Alana was inspired to create her own sunscreen.

“When I was very little, my mum used to sell beauty products and she taught me from a young age about skin care,” Alana said. “I became obsessed about ingredients.

“In my previous job I was selling beautiful products but felt it was a little inauthentic given we (Indigenous Australians) have got our own bush medicine.”
