NZC founder and leading-scientist, Olga Garkavenko, has been actively involved in ground-breaking cell therapy, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering research in New Zealand for 20+ years.

She holds a PhD in biochemistry, three patents related to regenerative medicine and she has published numerous papers in scientific journals.

Frustrated with ineffective skincare solutions, despite their claims or price, the world-renowned scientist decided to apply her biomedical background to her own beauty regime. Mixing the latest scientific findings with the cornucopia of potent New Zealand ingredients around her, she underwent more than 13 years of research and development to perfect her formulations. What at first started as a passion project has now flourished into New Zealand’s first cosmeceutical company.
