G&M Cosmetics optimistically celebrates 25 years of the company.
Despite saddening impacts to local businesses caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, G&M Cosmetics are still acknowledging and thanking their “simple ethos of being family-run”.
They say that their growing ‘family’ now includes the Research and Development team, Quality Control, Innovation and the rest of the close-knit employees who make the brand’s heart.
The idea of keeping things local follows through on the ingredient front as well, with natural, native Australian components featuring in their products.
G&M Cosmetics like so many other businesses has been impacted from every touchpoint; from Government restrictions, staff’s inability to travel to work, border closure and transport & logistics delays.
Founder, Mr Jordanov adds: “This has contributed to interruptions in the current everyday running of our company.”
It began as a single production line, by a young migrant entrepreneur who put his entire savings into creating the brand. His aim to produce a value for money, Australian-made skin and beauty product.
G&M Cosmetics now run 19 production lines, producing over 250,000 units per day. Their line includes Australian Creams, P’URE Papayacare, P’URE Papayacare Baby, Australian Creams MKII, Native Australian, Dr. V, Aussie Defence and Kakadu Plum Collection.
The company partners with associations, such as Vegan Society, ACO COSMOS Natural and Australasian Eczema Association who are leading bodies within their relevant industry.
Additionally, with sustainability on the brain, the Taren Point, Sydney-based company has optimistic plans to push harder for clean energy, sustainability, recycling initiatives and minimising waste to produce best in class products with the end consumer in mind.
“In 2020, we reduced our single-use plastic packaging by over 1.5 million pieces, and we will continue to work to reduce our environmental impact,” says Mr Jordanov.
“Against all the odds, G&M Cosmetics is still committed to producing brands in Australia, hiring Australian workers and building reputable products. We are encouraging Australians to get on board and support authentically Australian made brands.”
