First and foremost, I am a mum to 2 gorgeous kids and wife to my super supportive and handsome hubby. We live in the beautiful High Country town of Mansfield in Victoria. I am a born and bred country girl, choosing to live in my cowgirl boots over high heels any day!

Peta2015-1200In short, Rustic Hyde is all about Aussie lifestyle! Designed for men and women living and working on the land and those who just enjoy the great out-door Aussie lifestyle. Our unique Country Inspired skin care products have been designed to help combat the damaging effects caused to our skin by harsh Australian conditions.
Rustic Hyde products are multi-functional and hard working, just like you. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nourishing plant oils designed to clean, moisturise, soothe, repair and protect Aussie skins.

Rustic Hyde is more to me than just a skin care brand. Country music and country living fuels my soul, calms and balances me and provides inspiration to me on a daily basis. The brand is a reflection of this, infusing these passions with my desire to help others feel better about themselves and love the “skin” they’re in. My 13 years experience working in beauty salons, cosmetic clinics, skin cancer clinics and women’s health clinics were the foundations for creating my very own range of high end, quality skin care that was also affordable. Being a lover of the out-doors, having grown up riding my horses every spare chance I had, camping, 4WDriving and helping out on my grandparents small farm have all guided me in formulating a skin care range designed for men and women just like me!

Love the skin you're inThe small ritual of doing something like using skin care to take care of yourself each day can help us feel good about ourselves. The simple act of applying a luxurious, vitamin rich moisturiser each night after a hard day’s work can have a huge nurturing effect on our souls, helping us shine inside and out. Many of the essential oils we have used in our formulations are not only beneficial to the skin but beneficial to the mind and soul also. The essential oils we choose for our products have uplifting scents which are great for encouraging positive mood, calming anxiety and depression, and creating a sense of euphoria!
It’s not just about feeling good and looking good though, it is also a necessity to make sure our skin stays strong and healthy. It is after all, the largest organ of our body and our first line of defence against harsh environmental factors. If your hands are cracked and bleeding or your face is feeling dry, tight and sore from sun and wind burn, it makes it harder to work and get on with day to day tasks!

I have been fortunate enough to join forces with some amazing people to help spread the word about Rustic Hyde. Rising Australian country music star Christie Lamb, local country music star Ryan Daykin, international best selling country author Rachael Treasure and Country Music presenter Mary O’Neill. We all share that same vision of wanting to help rural people and in particular, women, find their inner and outer beauty through music, writing/reading, and looking after ourselves inside and out. Because we are WORTH it! We haven’t forgotten about the blokes either and have a range of simple, no fuss products to suit true blue, hard working Aussie men. Even the toughest of blokes need to take care of their skin too!

Rustic Hyde skin care products are proudly 100% Australian Made and Owned. Our products are NOT Tested on Animals and are all Sulphate and Paraben free. We pride ourselves on using some of the finest Aussie grown and farmed ingredients where possible.

With a touch of positivity and cowgirl spirituality, anything is possible! ☺
