Company Overview by Anáil Mitra, CEO
It's been over twenty years since Jay and I established FNWL. It can be surreal when I reminisce about how From Nature With Love transitioned from a one-room operation into being one of the nation's leading suppliers of superior quality ingredients used within beauty, cosmetic, personal care and wellness applications.
Our Company Beginnings
My first introduction to the distinction between "natural" and "synthetic" products or ingredients occurred when we sought allopathic treatment for our eighteen-month-old daughter's severe eczema. Our pediatrician recommended slathering her with Eucerin eight times a day. The higher wisdom residing within me decided to take a much closer look at product ingredient labels. I still remember being alarmed when reviewing the list of ingredients, even though I really didn't yet fully understand the good ingredients from the not-so-good ones.
Leaving the Eucerin on the shelf, I felt compelled to explore natural alternatives. I embarked on a journey that lead me to begin making homemade creams and cold process soaps. I immediately fell in love with handcrafted products and natural ingredients, but soon found myself with excess ingredients on hand.
Little did I realise at the time that selling my surplus to the members of soapmaking forums would lead to the birth of a thriving business.
The Intention Behind Choosing the Name From Nature With Love
The name From Nature With Love, reflects my undying reverence for the abundant medicinal gifts provided by Gaia.
About Natural Sourcing, LLC
In 2005, we formally changed our company name from From Nature With Love to Natural Sourcing and then established From Nature With Love as a trademarked brand under Natural Sourcing.
As our business grew, we began to serve both smaller artisanal businesses as well as much larger personal care manufacturers. We learned that we needed slightly different business models to best assist both types of customers and we realised that we needed a more suitable name to attract larger professional artisans and manufacturers. Jay and I decided to establish Natural Sourcing to better serve the unique and special bulk needs of our largest manufacturing customers while transitioning our original company name, From Nature With Love, to instead act as a trademarked brand name.

"I would just like to tell you thank-you for having a Web site with such delights. I love the butters that I purchased, and the fragrance oils that came along with my order smell wonderful. Since my purchase, I have been excited about trying to concoct the butters with a fragrance to make my own little butter. You definitely have a faithful customer in me."
