History FounderFounder


Farmaesthetics founder, Brenda Brock, is the daughter of a 7th generation farming family from Texas. She first made her handmade herbal skincare preparations available to customers, other than friends & family, in the summer of 1999 at an organic farmstand in rural Rhode Island.


Today her full line of 100% natural skincare products for face & body are used & sold in the finest spas & retailers in the world, including Four Seasons Resorts & Spas, Urban Outfitters, Terrain & their own unique flagship store-Farmaesthetics Skincare Apothecary & Treatment Boutique in Newport, RI. A noted trailblazer in "green" skincare, Ms. Brock successfully translated her traditional herbal recipes from "kitchen chemistry" to modern cosmetic manufacturing, resulting in pristine herbal products that retain their 100% natural status & compare in effectiveness with leading dermatological brands. She was named one of "The Purists" in Luxury Spafinder's feature of "Five Entrepreneurs at the Forefront of the Natural Beauty Revolution". Farmaesthetics was also named to Women's Wear Daily's "It List" of "The Green Brands Defining Organic Skincare", and Farmaesthetics was named to TIME MAGAZINE's "Green Style & Design 100: The People & Ideas Behind Today's Most Influential Design". Brenda Brock was honored as the 2013 Rhode Island Small Business Person of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

With an enduring commitment to "Sustainable Beauty®", all Farmaesthetics skincare products are 100% natural utilizing certified organic herbs, flowers, oils & grains from American family farms.
