According to good old Wikipedia, with a population of around 24 million, Australia is the 52nd most populous country in the world. Despite our relatively small population and our distance from most other countries, we are definitely not a country to be ignored.
In areas such as acting, music, fashion and sports, Aussies are making a name for themselves and punching above their weight and the world of beauty is no exception.
We are a small family business based in Berwick in Victoria. Our staff at Kiana Beauty as well as our bricks and mortar stores, Berwick Pharmacy and Eden Rise Pharmasave Pharmacy, come from all corners of the world and are proud to call Australia home.
This Australia Day, our team here at Kiana Beauty would like to applaud and highlight some of our Aussie brands.
