Kester Black was never a plot to shake up the industry. In fact, it began as a boutique line of silver jewellery – the side hustle of fashion grad Anna Ross. Anna wanted her pieces to incorporate enamel accents, so she began experimenting with low-tox, cruelty-free nail colour. Instant (energy efficient) lightbulb moment.
A decade and 60 shades later, Kester Black is Australia’s most ethical beauty brand, and has absolutely nothing to do with silver (except for a few shimmery shades). Instead, we’re more about green. We’re carbon neutral, vegan, and the first beauty brand – anywhere on Earth – to get the ultra-gruelling B Corp certification. So while we may have left jewellery far behind, when it comes to upending the status quo, we’re still pretty damn shiny.
