ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Renee Tilley, creator of Paudhã Healing, is a mother and wife with a passion for health and wellness. Her affinity with herbs and the healing nature of plants, inspired her to create Paudhã Healing –
“I suffer from Rosacea and have always had dry, irritated skin. Over the years I’ve tried countless skincare products, without success and eventually I got to the point where I stopped cleansing and moisturising my face altogether.
It was during a herbal manufacturing course that I had my lightbulb moment. Studying a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy), I discovered my love of herbs and their amazing healing properties. Learning about the medicinal benefits of common plants and weeds people often take for granted, I decided to put these plants to good use. I started experimenting with Chickweed (Stellaria media) which was growing in abundance around my home in the Blue Mountains.
That was how my first product, the Calendula & Chickweed Cream was created. I started slowly, making it for friends and family, who could not get enough of this cream! Given its popularity, I decided to turn what started as a passion project and solution to my own problem, of finding skincare for my sensitive skin, into creating a skincare brand that people of all skin types could enjoy and benefit from.
I went on to study an Advanced Certificate in Cosmetic Chemistry and a Diploma in Natural Skincare, in order to combine my love and knowledge of herbs, with the skills of chemical formulations, to create a range of products, that are gentle to the skin and only mildly scented with pure essential oils.
