Farmaesthetics, Brenda Brock
Brenda Brock, Formulator and CEO, Farmaesthetics®
Brenda Brock, Farmaesthetics’ Founder, Formulator and CEO is the daughter of a 7th generation farming family from Texas, with roots steeped in herbal traditions.
Ms. Brock’s technical background in chemistry stems from her pre-nursing studies at The University of Texas at Austin and her employment while in school at the UT Chemistry Department NMR and IR Labs. Her love of storytelling and writing led to a change of majors and a move to New York City where she studied and enjoyed a 10-year career as a working actress and produced playwright.
Following four years on the ABC Daytime Drama, One Life to Live, and two Daytime Award nominations for Best Actress, Ms. Brock longed to return to her rural roots. She moved to Rhode Island, restored an old Victorian farmhouse and began growing herbs and making her skincare preparations, which has been a life long passion.
Ms. Brock first made her herbal products available to customers, other than friends and family, in the summer of 1999 at her friend’s organic farmstand in rural RI. She created her seasonal line using pristine organic harvests from the oceanside farms. To meet growing year-round demand for her products, she took her “recipes” to dermatological laboratories and successfully re-formulated her 100% natural products for large batch production, while achieving a certified two-year shelf life.
A noted trailblazer in the industry of “Green” cosmetic manufacturing, Ms. Brock is a sought after-speaker. She addressed the 2nd Annual Cosmeceutical Conference in New York City, where she spoke on behalf of the fast-growing “Green” luxury skincare category, and its relevance to today’s consumer.
