The Australian Skincare Pioneer
Cawarra Cosmetics Pty Ltd has been manufacturing in Australia for over 33 years and continues to be regarded as one of the manufacturing pioneers of what is now a heavily competitive and sometimes misleading industry of “natural” skincare. The company produces a large range of certified organic natural skincare, hair care and body products, together with other personal care items.
Cawarra is an Australian owned manufacturer for a wide range of customers who supply to health food, pharmacy, supermarket, and our products are also seen in department stores, beauty salons, spas and many stores throughout the world.
Truth Within Labelling
Certified Organic & 100% Natural
Over eight years ago Cawarra Cosmetics became a certified organic processor, cementing our niche as a natural & organic manufacturer, a pioneer in the contract manufacturing industry. Our speciality over the years has ensured we have developed our own stability and preservative system and found the best suppliers from around Byron Bay and the world including “Fair Trade” where available. We have developed many organic brands for many companies, including our own brands such as Sanctum, OrganicSpa and Meditree.
We can manufacture your products to Australian and the USDA Organic Standards with our formulations or yours. We believe in truth with labelling and to be truly natural you must be certified organic and independently accredited.

From the Byron Bay
We've come a long way
Founded in Sydney in 1981 by Greg and Jicky Milham the company quickly grew to be a major manufacturer in generic branded supermarket products in the 1980’s. Greg and Jicky with their young family decided to move to the Byron Bay area in the early 1990’s as a more natural alternative to raise their family. In Byron, they recognized a gap in the market place as more people (and Jicky) were demanding natural and organic products.
Today, Greg and Jicky with their three children work within the business in various roles together with an additional 20 staff that have all become part of the Cawarra family. Now over thirty years old the business has many staff that have been with the company for over 15 years.
Our highly qualified chemists work closely with our technical support staff to produce quality products to our formulations or your own formulas. Our manufacturing expertise, history and product knowledge particularly in the organic industry is well known and respected and gives you the confidence and security to expand into the market here and beyond.
