Mr. Browne is an easy-to-apply self-tanning range for men. This was started by Joanne Rathbone and Michelle Crofts in 2012. Mr. Browne’s net worth was $350,000 at the time of their pitch in 2015 based on the $70,000 offer for 20% of the equity of the company. 

They appeared in Season 01 of Shark Tank Australia in 2015. But, the Sharks were not interested in investing in Mr. Browne. 

Although Mr. Brown was a unique product, Joanne and Michelle’s pitch could not bring much luck to their business. Mr. Browne’s Facebook and Twitter handles have not been updated since 2017. Moreover, the company no longer has a functioning website. Thus, it appears to be that Mr. Browne is out of the market as of January 2024.
