Real Heritage

Founded more than 175 years ago as one of America’s first skin care companies, E.T.Browne Drug Co Inc is a leader in natural-based, treatment-oriented beauty products with its trusted Palmer’s brand. Sold in over 100 countries worldwide, Palmer’s crafts products that are trusted and passed down from generation to generation.

We unlock nature’s most powerful ingredients to help women be their most beautiful selves. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula was introduced into the Australian market in 1997 and it was an instant hit. Since then the range has been joined by equally popular and revered ranges as Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula, Shea Formula and Skin Success. Today there is a Palmer’s product for every need – body, hair, stretch marks, face and bath - and we are proudly the #1 Cocoa Butter and Coconut Beauty Brands in Australia!*

We are committed to continually crafting luxurious, affordable products that really do work. Our formulas use only nature’s richest, most indulgent ingredients including 100% pure cocoa butter, coconut oil & shea butter.
