The birth of The Wellness Group came about in 2002. Whilst working with her father, a cosmetic dermatologist, Madeline came to realise that there were no suitable quality skin care products that produced effective results for different skin types.
“Most commercial products were trying to look or smell impressive, rather than be the most effective,” says Madeline. “Considering that the skin is our body’s largest organ, I think it only makes sense that we afford the same attention and care to it that we would our heart. We are aware of the dangers of putting chemicals inside our bodies, so why not apply the same principle to our outer body, too”.
