Our StoryWhat started as a passion for natural health, grew into one of Australia's most trusted vitamin brands.
HistorySee how Nature's Own became the brand it is today.
Nature's Own founder, Vaughan Bullivant is almost killed in a waterskiing accident. After four weeks, to the doctors' surprise, Vaughan is walking again. Vaughan believes his daily vitamins played a part in his recovery.
Bullivant is inspired to get into the health food industry after a positive change in diet cures his asthma. He opens his first health food store in Redcliffe, Brisbane, Queensland.
