After doing some research and discovering that the natural skincare product her family was using wasn’t as ‘natural’ as it claimed, Bubba Organics co-founder Kerri Chadwick and her team set out to make the best quality, truly natural baby skincare products possible at an affordable price. They didn’t know it would change lives in the way it has.
Kerri, a mother of two and Mornington Peninsula resident, says: “We didn’t set out to change the world, but we receive so many messages and testimonials from happy mums. Knowing our products are helping families is why we love doing what we do.”

Bubba Organics products are proving effective in relieving and clearing up cradle cap, acne, and eczema. Melbourne mum Bec Ley searched for answers to cure her son’s severe eczema. “I tried so many recommended brands on the market and nothing worked,” says Bec. “They would even make him itchier. Bubba Organics Australian Goats Milk Bottom Cream was recommended to me and it worked like magic overnight. It gave him instant relief and wasn’t itchy on his skin at all. I cannot believe how well this product worked on his eczema.”
Made in Melbourne and packaged in recyclable packaging, Bubba Organics is committed to working with local manufacturers and being 100 per cent Australian-made. Its products are chemical-free, with no nasties such as parabens, petroleum, sulphates, mineral oils, synthetic colours or artificial fragrances. And they’re also water-free. This is significant because many skincare companies use water as their base ingredient. In fact, water accounts for up to 90 per cent of some skincare products. Bubba Organics uses aloe vera as the base ingredient because of its soothing, calming and healing properties. “It’s so important we read the labels on skincare like we do with food,” explains Kerri. “The first ingredient listed is the main ingredient.”
Kerri has been nominated in the Sustainability category of the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards. These awards are about supporting Australian mums in business, challenging stereotypes, and raising awareness about the contributions made by women with young children to the Australian economy. Kerri continues: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be nominated in this category. It’s so important that we all do what’s right for the environment and the next generation. It’s about committing to being environmentally sustainable and doing your best. It’s not about making the most money; it’s about making a difference.”
Good luck, Kerri!
