Gemma's Mission:

To provide high quality, high definition, safe, gender-neutral, 100 per cent vegan and cruelty-free mineral cosmetics to those who care about themselves, our animals, and the planet.

Hello there!
I'm Gemma Vendetta, a qualified Hairdresser + Makeup Artist, Educator and training Cosmetic Chemist. I present to you my namesake = Gemma Vendetta Cosmetics.

My brand is a 100% self-funded start-up and is 100% Australian made, too. My products are certified cruelty free by Choose Cruelty Free, and also certified toxic-free/allergy certified safe/made safe/cruelty free and vegan by Safe Cosmetics Australia. 

I believe that a pure and natural approach to makeup doesn't mean compromising on quality, the environment, or your health and my products are the proof. 

I have an avid love of the 1940s and my alter-ego, vintage Pin Up "Gemma Vendetta" was born from a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. MS as its affectionately known is a degenerative autoimmune disease and from the 25th of June 2007, EVERYTHING changed.
I became frustrated by the 'usual' and widely accepted manufacturing ethos' of the 'big brands'. Could I possibly be partly responsible for making positive changes in a globally dominated industry?

WHY was it the norm to use so many harmful chemicals in our beauty products, at the cost of our health and wellness?

WHY were so many of our products not only made overseas but companies dominating the Australian market OWNED overseas?

WHY WERE PRODUCTS STILL TESTED ON ANIMALS???

My core range is carefully curated, and personally tested to work harmoniously with your body, and nature. Made without nano-particles, harmful fillers, and binders, my cosmetics are also free from parabens, synthetic fragrances, gluten, and mineral oils, or allergens. *please see ingredients for INCI names to check for potential allergens.

Fast forward to 2021, 5 years in business, and growing everyday, I invite you to reap the healthy rewards. Be the change. Choose Gemma Vendetta.
