Our story:

Meet our Founders Robert Fernance and Brian McLean

In 1979 Bob and Brian were two friends working in the chemical industry together. At the time, regular cleaners contained toxic ingredients that were detrimental to the health of our bodies and our planet.

Bob and Brian wanted something far greater for their families. They wanted far greater for the planet they would leave their children with. So they devoted 10 years into developing a range of products they could bring home to their families, and share with all Australian families to use with peace of mind. Through many years of research and countless late nights, they uncovered the powers of plant-based ingredients and their complex synergies as an alternative to harsh, aggressive chemical products prevalent in the marketplace. They also discovered that these ingredients didn’t have to compromise product performance at all, and in fact, these unique synergies between ingredients enabled the plant-based formulas to outperform the nasty chemical products. They started off with a small range of products that were revolutionary to the marketplace, including our award-winning phosphate & nitrate free laundry powder. All of their hard work and late nights paid off, and in 1989 Tri Nature was launched by the Mi­nister of the Environment, Tim Moore. Tri Nature has now grown in more ways than Bob or Brian could have ever imagined possible – emerging into an extensive range of products to encompass all areas of the home and personal care.

“We are proud to be an Australian owned manufacturer, using Australian technology, producing products with a market place reputation of unequalled quality and performance. We look forward with great confidence to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead" – Robert Fernance, Managing Director & Co-Founder.

“Driven by a 'strive for excellence' criteria, our work has moved beyond our expectations. We are and will continue to be a world leader in the research and development of natural-based products" – Brian McLean, Technical Director & Co-Founder.

We believe the future is an opportunity to develop a tribe of people having fun while making a positive impact on our health and our environment.


Our Future:

Meet Leah…

Leah is proud to be one of the original “Tri Nature Babies.” As Bob’s daughter, she was one of the main sources of inspiration behind the creation of the brand. Leah has (unsurprisingly) been raised surrounded by all things Tri Nature, and the products are still deeply ingrained in all of her daily routines. Leah is now shaping the future for the new generation of Tri Nature Babies, which includes her 3 little boys.

“I am immensely proud of being raised in a family where my father had the foresight and desire to consider environmental sustainability long before it was ever marketable to do so. Because of him, I have the peace of knowing that I have always used products that are the healthiest choice for both the environment and myself. Nothing pleases me more than being able to pass this gift of health & sustainability onto my boys. Together, we form one of our toughest product testing panels!”
