"My grandma, a medicinal chemist and toxicologist, always taught me that, like our bodies, our skin needs feeding with healthy, nourishing and, most importantly, natural ingredients.
Growing up in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland, Australia, I was surrounded by an abundance of natural ingredients, including fresh aloe vera plants and exotic fruit trees. The environment I grew up in has had a huge effect on the products we create at Tropic."
From our earliest origins in Cairns, Australia to today’s Tropic HQ in Surrey, and from one body scrub to over 275 award-winning products, we’ve come pretty far over the years. Take a look at our timeline to follow us every step of the way.

TEACHING THE UNREACHED
Empowering the next generation begins with enabling them to access the education that’s their human right, giving them the tools to shape their future. Our partnership with United World Schools ensures that every order, no matter how big or small, funds schooling for children in some of the world’s most remote regions.
So far, this initiative has already funded education for a year at over 180 schools across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal, and led to the opening of a brand-new school, with even more on the way soon.
We believe in being a force for good beyond beauty, in everything we do. From sustainably sourcing our ingredients to bringing you freshly made products that are truly kind to your skin, our brand beliefs reflect the impact we want to have in the beauty industry and beyond.
Proud to be independently Ethically Accredited with a score of 100/100 from the Good Shopping Guide, we’ve also been certified carbon negative and landfill-free for over three years.
In an industry that often overlooks animal welfare and the environment, we promise to never test on animals, nor use derivatives that cause them distress. That's why we stand with Cruelty Free International, The Vegan Society and PETA as a 100% cruelty-free brand, always and forevermore.
Plants and fruits that grow in tropical climates soak up an abundance of sunshine, which helps them to flourish. We believe that these plants are the most nutritious and beneficial for the skin, so our team searches far and wide to trace only the most nourishing, transformative ingredients.
These powerful botanical actives are sustainably sourced from regions all around the world, including the Amazon rainforest, Polynesia, Australia and Madagascar.
SUPPORTED BY SCIENCE
We always strive to be at the forefront of natural ingredient research, with every single formulation being developed in our HQ’s Innovation Lab. True to the name, they are supercharged with innovative ingredients, such as bio-retinol and plant ceramides, and embrace the latest green technologies.
With independent clinical studies supporting the efficacy of a wide range of our core products, we also use Provenance® to allow us to be as transparent as possible about all the ways we’re helping to carve out a better future for our world. This blockchain software brings together all the need-to-know ethical stories on each of our products in accessible, clear, and comprehensible Proof Points.
By always remaining on the cutting edge of the beauty industry, we’ve been honoured to receive over 275 awards recognising our product range – and counting!
