HUSH Cosmetics was founded by our owner Jessica Callahan in 2005 after several years working in the make up and beauty industry.
At that time Jessica was a busy mum with small children and she had a vision to create cosmetics that were safe and free from harmful chemicals commonly used by the large manufacturers. Living in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges she was inspired to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle not affected by chemicals in the products she used everyday on herself and her family.
She also operated a professional beauty salon from her home providing a beautiful ambient space for her clients. Utilising her beauty therapy and Health Science training.
For many years she worked on formulating and designing make up products for women that where quick and easy to use and produced quality results, without the proven harmful additives.
In 2011 we opened our first HUSH store ! This was very exciting and the next step. From there the business has grown to what it is now. We have added a huge range of carefully selected beauty products to complement our make up range and operate a very professional and personal beauty salon offering the absolute best in services and products.
In 2016 Jessica celebrates 20 years in the beauty industry and is launching our new online store featuring the best beauty products we can find. After years of researching and experimenting we have everything covered! With a strong focus on no animal testing and no added:
PALM Oil, Artificial fragrances and colours
Preservatives (parabens – strong links to cancer)
Sulfates and strong surfactants ( foaming agents linked to cancer / dermatitis etc.)
Petrochemicals (they don’t absorb into skin – by product of petrol refinery)
Make up specific – NO TALC, bismuth (itchy feeling????), Cheap fillers, Silicone (its like gladwrap)
So please enjoy browsing our website and feel free to contact us with any beauty and skin questions on our contact page.
Our focus is helping you be the best version of yourself you can be – inside and out. If you have the opportunity to visit our salon you will experience professional and dedicated therapists that are focused on your needs and providing solutions.
