Finalist - Discovering Gold

Totarol, extracted from old totara logs and developed by Carterton’s Mende Biotech, has proved is an effective antibiotic replacement and is being used by international cosmetic companies like L’Oreal.

Mende Biotech, based in Carterton, is the first company in the world to develop, commercialise and trademark Totarol. It’s proven to be an effective antibiotic replacement and is resistant against the so-called superbugs.

“It’s been 17 years of extensive R&D,” CEO Doug Mende says. “Not only are we exporting Totarol worldwide to customers like  L’Oreal, but now we are developing veterinary and human finished products with the  clinical studies on infection control very encouraging.”

Totarol’s naturally occurring preservative qualities make it a perfect organic alternative to chemical, synthetic preservatives in everyday cosmetic and health products.
