About

"We’ve reinterpreted the meaning of natural to represent a connection between personal wellness, economic longevity and the health of our environment. It's about teaching students the importance of sustainability in every sense and incorporating it into theory and practice."

The College of Natural Beauty (Registered Training Organisation #31489) promotes natural connections between personal wellness, economic sustainability and the health of our environment.

Our unique holistic approach to beauty education puts the body in harmony with nature, allowing us to feel healthier, stronger and more attractive.

The College attends the annual Sustainable Cosmetics Summit, Hong Kong, a summit which brings together cosmetic manufacturers, ingredient & raw material suppliers, retailers, certification agencies, academics and encourages sustainability in the beauty industry. This forum allows us to identify and develop the most useful programs that will support greening, as well as advancing sustainability in the industry.

Study with us and be part of a greater wellness experience.

Yours in Natural Beauty,
Natalie Daniel
National VET Manager

Values that guide each and every interaction we have with students, staff, consumers and stakeholders.

  • Authenticity – We do not pretend. We do not have false friends or colleagues. We are warm and genuine and understand that robust discussions aim to support openness and growth.
  • Clarity – We speak to the facts. We do not create mythology based on incorrect information. We verify the data and we act in the interests of clarity.
  • Student Centricity – All students are central to our existence. We work to engage and satisfy our prospective, current and past students like no other tertiary institution.
  • Happiness – We value positivity, joy, encouragement and strive to be in the moment. We affirm our own actions, those of others and the organisation.
  • Embodiment – We teach, support, live and breathe natural medicine and wellbeing. Be the contributions large or small, we consciously find ways to contribute to an holistic approach in everything we do.
  • Responsibility – We take personal ownership of our actions. We do not blame others. When we commit – we follow through. We model the very best in ethical conduct.
