Narelle Chenery is the woman who created the ORGANIC skin care industry.
She formulated the world's first certified organic skin and body care range and because it was never done, she formulated her skincare products to food-grade standards...there were no cosmetic standards then.
Miessence was the start of many firsts - the world's first sustainable, certified organic MLM that now boasts a varied range of certified organic products, empowering eco-conscious persons to build their own green biz right from home with products of the highest quality.

Known as the Green Goddess, Narelle started “detoxing” her life at age 20 after having an irregular Pap smear. Pregnant with her first child at 22 and completing a degree in applied science at university, she decided to sell a range of “natural” beauty products to supplement her income.
“When I started researching the range’s ingredients, I was shocked to discover that they weren’t natural at all.” she says.
“Ethically, I couldn’t sell the products any longer, but was inspired to find a truly natural skincare range. Yet, no matter where I searched, I was unable to find one.”
Spurred on, Narelle experimented with ingredients in her kitchen, In 1998, she was ready to launch a range of 25 products known as Intelligence Cosmetics at a natural-living fair on the Gold Coast. Everything was hand-made, down to the labels. By now, Narelle had three children, plenty of energy and big dreams. Yet she didn’t sell a single product. “That day taught me a great lesson in perseverance. I wanted to reach women with my message, so I looked at other ways, without actually being in the front line.”
Not only am I so proud be an independent representative of this earth-loving company, but I'm also honored to know Narelle as a friend.
