Our Story

Necessity® was established in 2006 when Dr Allen Sonter, partnered with aromatherapy specialist and Naturopath, Peter Bamford. Together they mastered the art of combining the active constituents of plants (plant actives) into powerful multi-tasking formula’s.


Necessity natural skin products are 100% plant-based, organic and most importantly 100% unadulterated and free of dangerous chemicals and additives to contain the highest quality products to treat skin conditions such as acne, cold sores, eczema, bites, burns and rashes.

Consistent positive consumer reviews have contributed in the team expanding. Today, Dr Allen Sonter and Peter Bamford are both in their 80’s and remain part of the team that now includes Dr Julie Douglass, Naturopath Gillian Day, naturopath in training Kelsea Bell and Sam Godfrey. Our team of medical practioners, naturopaths and support staff remain committed to providing 100% pure and natural therapeutic products for skin conditions. Necessity is; and will continue to be wholly Australian made and owned, with a factory and warehouse in Southport and Toowomba, QLD.


Necessity’s leading products Fixaderm® and Cold Sore Relief are listed as medicines with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the regulatory body for therapeutic goods, including medicines in Australia.
