Our Story

Qsilica is a natural beauty brand owned by Planet Health - the market leading national marketer of premium natural health and beauty products in Australia. Launched in 2006, this is the story of Qsilica’s journey so far:



How it began

Planet Health was founded in February 1996 in New South Wales, Australia by Mandy and Peter Harwood. Both directors shared a vision to create a natural health & beauty company like no other.

As Planet Health grew, the opportunity for a clinically researched and a naturally sourced silica infused beauty supplement was identified. In 2004, Peter and Mandy started to research and develop their own solution - specifically avoiding the commonly used ingredients like sodium benzoate and processes such as pasteurisation. They also wanted to ensure that no animal ingredients or testing was involved. After 2 years in development, 2006 saw the launch of their own Australian made, premium quality colloidal silica range of ‘beauty from the inside’ supplements.


Australian Made and Family Owned

Planet Health is a family owned company and our Qsilica products are proudly 100% Australian made, using premium ingredients from all over the world and fully supported by a 100% quality guarantee.
