About From Nature With Love
Since 1997, From Nature With Love has been a leader in supplying high quality ingredients to the skin care, aromatherapy, spa and craft industries. From Nature With Love also offers a large selection of packaging supplies, bath accessories and equipment.
Kibby and Jay, the founders of From Nature With Love first became interested in natural skincare when their young daughter developed eczema. After trying several commercial products in an effort to treat their daughter's condition Kibby and Jay became dissatisfied with the results. They also became concerned with the safety of the repeated use of the products. The couple next turned to natural oils as an alternative treatment and were delighted by the results.
The experience sparked a passionate interest in natural botanicals. This passion developed into a small business that has grown over the past ten years into one of the leading sources for natural and complimentary skincare ingredients. From Nature With Love strives to provide only the best quality ingredients, superior customer care, and a friendly environment for others to share in the knowledge of natural skincare and its benefits.
Natural Sourcing was originally launched in September of 2005 as the bulk division of FNWL. The founders of From Nature With Love recognized the need to create a separate company that could specialize in serving the unique and special needs of its largest customers with enhanced efficiency and superior customer service. Since the time that Natural Sourcing was established, both companies have been formally reorganized, and From Nature With Love now operates as a trademark underNatural Sourcing, LLC.
