In a wide-ranging conversation with Cosmetics Design, Chey Birch, founder of Black Chicken Remedies, explains why product instability isn’t a deal breaker for today’s natural beauty consumer, discusses her brand’s water-free formulation strategy, and talks about the quality and variety of Australian ingredients.
“A lot of people are looking at Australia as being a very clean environment and being quite a harsh climate as well,” says Birch. “Our products are designed…for that harsh climate, so very moisturizing for dry skin.”
Black Chicken Remedies is essentially a skin care brand; but the product portfolio is quite broad, spanning not only personal care, skin care, and body care but wellness, oral care, and aromatherapy too. (The brand’s tongue cleaner is made of copper, a trendy material in its own right.) And, Birch credits the diverse product range with helping the brand meet various consumer expectations across the United States.
