Natural Skin Care Blog

My Name is Wendy Maddocks and I am the founder and creative formulator at From Nature Ltd. This business is part of my on going commitment to producing quality, plant based natural products. From Nature specialises in supplying fresh made cosmetic bases for retail and commercial customers. Wendy introduced NZ's first genuine 100% botanical skin care range to a global market in 2008, launching at Cosmoprof in Hong Kong under the brand Dr. Wendy's 100% Botanical Skin Care. From this the business has evolved to the current format of primarily developing products for other people. Through my expriences of setting up an export brand in Asia and supplying products to retail stores and salons I now work with other businesses to help develope their range. I have kept the best of my own products and offer a limited range of retail products, bulk products along with private label and contract manufacturing. Please don't hesitate to contact me
