Our Company

Our company began with a group of friends who shared a passion for the health of people and the planet.

Founders Narelle and Colin Chenery, Alf Orpen and John Hunter established the Organic & Natural Enterprises Group in 2003 to develop a comprehensive range of organic home, health and beauty products under the Miessence name.

The Australian founders were determined that all Miessence products would be the world's finest for quality with only certified organic ingredients used.

To find out more about the Miessence products, then visit The Miessence Story page.

Miessence is the world's first extensive range of internationally certified organic skin, hair, body, cosmetic, oral and nutritional products.

These range of products stand in a class of their own. They are independently certified to international food grade standards by some of the world's most respected organic certifying organisations - Australian Certified Organic (ACO), the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and IFOAM (Europe).

The passion for developing superior organic health, beauty and nutritional products continues with new, innovative lines under constant development. All Miessence products have been extensively researched and developed for quality and effectiveness using pure natural ingredients without any artificial chemical processing.

Our company is a genuine Australian business success story with sales in its first 18 months growing by 2500%. Miessence products – from ingredients sourced from Australia and overseas – are produced at our headquarters on the Gold Coast.

We now have independent representatives in 65 countries around the globe – all of whom are passionate about using and sharing information about certified organic products for nutrition, home and body care.

Our network marketing program is comprehensive and rewarding. It is an ideal way for health, beauty and complementary medicine professionals to enjoy a further revenue stream for their business. It is also an excellent opportunity for people who have a passion for certified organic products to affordably start their own business.

If you'd like to know more about our business opportunities, please visit our Miessence Community page.

The company's ground breaking efforts and success have created a grass roots education movement about organic, green and healthy alternatives.

The shared dream to give back and help people and the planet has been realised.

A Message From Our Directors

Narelle Chenery

Narelle Chenery

Education is the key to empowering consumers to see through the 'green-wash' of slick product marketing to recognise products for what they really are. Misleading labels and clever advertising relating to organic content often mask the use of potentially toxic ingredients, which seriously undermines the integrity of the organic claim.

At Miessence our products are certified organic, using genuinely natural ingredients with nothing artificial added. Our products are pure, potent and fresh.

Our Representatives and customers gain profound personal benefit from our products and business building, and gain a vehicle for contributing to the wave of change at a critical time for our environment and planetary responsibilities.

Alf Orpen

It is a common cry of many scientists and economists that within the next 20 years we must implement a strategy to create an ecologically sustainable world. Business is the most powerful vehicle to expedite that outcome.

Businesses that thrive in this new environment will be the ones that have integrity at its core and put into practice principles of genuine ecological as well as economic sustainability.

I believe Miessence is one of these companies.
