Farmaesthetics’ CEO Brock Named Small Business Person of the Year

Saturday, June 15, 2013

 

Small Business Person of the Year Brenda Brock celebrates her award with Amanda Sousa, Liza Frost Hughes, and Kia Quinn.

Brenda Brock, founder, formulator and CEO of Farmaesthetics, received RI SBA's top honor as Small Business Person of the Year SBA "Rhode Island Salute to Small Business" event this week.

Farmaesthetics, based in Newport, designs, creates and distributes fine herbal skincare products to the global luxury spa market, select retailers, as well as online at www.farmaesthetics.com. Brock's products are 100% natural and utilize organically grown ingredients from American family farms. 

"This SBA award comes at a turning point in the growth of Farmaesthetics and is a personal milestone for me," Brock told GoLocalProv. "The SBA was there in 1999 with tools and talent to help me build our business plan, a plan that is still in place as our road map to success. Now, 14 years later, we are poised to take Farmaesthetics to the next level, and the SBA is there again, proactive in their support and resources."

Brock said that the SBA award gave her company a benchmark "to see how far we have come and where we are heading now as a leading green, sustainable, socially responsible, woman-owned business in the beautiful state of RI."

Brenda Brock

Honored by TIME Magazine as one of the “100 Most Influential People and Ideas Behind Today’s Green Design” and one of “The Purists: Five Entrepreneurs at the Forefront of the Natural Beauty Revolution” by Luxury Spafinder, Founder, Formulator & CEO Brenda Brock’s Farmaesthetics represent 100% natural Sustainable Beauty® from American family farms.

A noted trailblazer in "green" skincare and the daughter of a 7th generation Texas farming family, Brenda successfully translated her traditional herbal recipes from "kitchen chemistry" to modern cosmetic manufacturing. The result is a line of pristine herbal products that compare in effectiveness with leading dermatological brands. All her formulations are made with whole herb and natural ingredients that retain their 100% natural status and certified shelf-life without utilizing any synthesized nature-identical compounds.  

A repeat guest on “The Martha Stewart Show”, Brock has also been named one of Martha’s “Natural Beauty Gurus”. Brock will be at The Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY in September 2013, where she will be teaching the craft of traditional herbal formulation in an intensive weekend workshop: “Sustainable Beauty from the Farm”.

Brock told GoLocal that the SBA award brought one more benefit to her. "It also means that I get to wear my tiara in public, rather than just around the office," she said. "At last!"
