About Us

Smooch skin care products are made for people with skin ailments looking for a 100% natural solution without traditional chemical-based ingredients and other nasties. Smooch founder Corrin Miller developed the products when struggling to overcome her own skin problems while looking for an all-natural solution.

Our products are formulated with 100% natural ingredients, so no chemicals, stabilisers or preservatives, with each included ingredient working in its natural state. All ingredients are truly natural – some even edible.

Our best seller, Doctor Smooch is beneficial for Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis, cracked/dry skin and other common skin problems whether it’s for you or the whole family. You can take comfort in knowing you aren’t harming your body or the planet.

If you can't eat it, it won't be in Smooch natural products

There are too many chemicals around us in our skin care, food, apparently even wine and chocolate (but we’ll ignore those ones). My basic philosophy around skin care ingredients is that I need to be able to pronounce the word, be able to recognise the word as an actual ingredient and I should be able to ingest all of the ingredients without fear. 

I am not a world expert on chemicals and make no claim to know what I’m talking about but I have heard that doctors have found traces of aluminium and other metals in woman’s lymph nodes and breast tissue when they’ve had them removed for cancer reasons. Weird because I don’t know anyone that eats aluminium! Do you? 

These sorts of nasties are in a lot of daily products that we use. My goal is to look at ways of reducing these chemicals in my daily use. So my underlying philosophy in all Smooch Products is that...

Doing our part for animals

Smooch supports the Orangutan Project

Cece is the first orangutan we've adopted, and she is adorable...but what orangutan isn't? She's shy but with attitude and we love that. Deforestation left her an orphan; luckily she was found, and now she's being cared for by the Orangutan Project. By adopting her we are playing our small part in helping Cece get back into the wild, and helping to undo the damage caused by the palm oil industry.

The Story Behind Smooch Natural Products

In 1999 I woke up in the middle of the night with an incredibly itchy scalp. This had happened to me before, in fact most times I tried different shampoos and conditioners I had this reaction. I sat up and poured an almost full jar of coconut oil over my head. I thought my scalp should be moisturised like the rest of my skin. It worked well for a little while, except that I looked like I had stuck my head in a chip vat! 

The benefit I felt got me thinking of a plan. I had always preferred natural products on my skin and when my mother developed Cancer I put this at the forefront of my planning. This is why I came up with the idea of putting nothing on my skin that I couldn't eat. 

My Own Guinea Pig

With my knowledge of making skin care and essential oils I went about making a concoction. Being my own guinea pig and needing some sort of controlled experiment I covered the left side of my body in coconut oil, the right side was for my concoction! The right side, including my difficult scalp, felt smoother, looked better and my scalp didn't itch. It wasn't quite right though. The formula went back to the drawing board. Concoction #1 went on the left side and on went #2 for the right side. This went on for a number of years until I came up with the product we sell today called, Doctor Smooch. I gave it this name as it seemed to cure all.

I wanted a balm that I could use as a moisturiser everyday and one to cure my Psoriasis of the scalp and my Contact Dermatitis caused by stress and nasty ingredients in other products. I did it!

Going To Market

In 2014 we started with 2 massage oils but when going to our first Expo I thought I'd take some Doctor Smooch with us. Our oils still continue to sell well but Doctor Smooch has gone beyond what we ever imagined. It turns out I wasn't the only one with difficult and dry skin. We have now helped thousands of people now which gives us lots of warm fuzzy feelings. We love hearing form our clients. Your feedback is not only welcomed, but encouraged 

Branching Out

From there, I've continued to branch out into other natural products - currently researching products that I believe many would like a 100% natural solution for, including deodorant, sugar scrubs, make up remover, insect repellent, pet care and much more.
