Alana Kennedy is the driving force behind Ochre Sun Group and its range of sunscreen. In 2019 Alana launched Ochre Sun 50+ SPF sunscreen using native Indigenous botanicals and by doing so, laid the foundations of a business that would create tangible and lasting impact for First Nations people and communities.
Fast forward to today, Alana is leading a mission to take Ochre Sun to the world and by doing so, bring more benefit to rural and regional Australian communities who are integral to the supply chain of Ochre Sun sunscreen.
Alana is a descendant of the Waanyi Kalkadoon and Eastern Arrernte tribes from North West Queensland – near Mount Isa. It’s from here, she draws her inspiration to share ancient practices from her family’s culture into today’s skincare routines. She’s deeply passionate about
the power and richness of plants, ancient rituals, rhythms and remedies.
Her infectious energy and passion for drawing on millennia-old traditions to today’s world sees her represent Australia on the world stage of Indigenous trade. Alana is the Australian Ambassador at the International Inter-Tribal Trade and Investment Organisation (IITIO) – who were founded in 2014 at the College of Law, University of Oklahoma, to harness the potential of the inherent Indigenous economic right of Inter-tribal trade.
Before founding Ochre Sun, Alana’s career has seen her mentor and advocate for Indigenous business through a range of roles. She also spent 10 years working in the beauty and skincare industry but says it was her mum’s career in the sector that inspired her from a very early age. She hopes to inspire her own daughters through the work she is doing to grow Ochre Sun and in turn, bring more opportunities to others.
