Wendy McKenzie grew up in Fairbury, and attended Bahner College of Hairstyling in Fremont, earning her licensing in both cosmetology and barbering. She got married to her husband, Ken, moved to Kearney and worked as a beautician.

They lived in the country, owning a lama and a few Angora goats. Wendy would spin the angora on a spinning wheel. In 2011, Wendy, Ken and their four children, moved to Overton settling on 2.5 acres. They quickly acquired a flock of 22 chickens from a friend selling flock. Then came a few meat goats and the acquisition of dairy goats.

Today…those animals have grown into 20 goats, 50 chickens, 10 ducks and 20 rabbits. Wendy, Ken, and kids (ages 15, 13, 12 and 3). Work together managing their little acreage and the animals. She homeschools the children, and they are very active in 4-H. In fact, many of their animal’s head to the fair every year.

About 3 years ago, Wendy was looking for a way to use extra milk from their dairy goats. Because their neighbors had a dairy, she did not consider selling goat milk dairy items.

Then someone suggested she make goat milk soap.

It took six months of research before trying the first batch. She posted on her Facebook page, asking for input.

“Look I made camouflage soap!”, I said. “I asked people what I should call it.”

The soap in question became “Camo Clean” and Udderly Naked was born.

From the very beginning, all Udderly Naked Goat Milk products were designed to be 100 % natural–made with goat’s milk, high quality vegetable oils and essential oils–no lard, tallow or fragrance oils. Any dyes are natural as are any additives, such as loofah.

In all of her research, Wendy notes on her Udderly Naked Facebook Page, ” As I started researching and learning about soap and how to make it, I found out that “soap” from a store is actually a “detergent” filled with chemicals and strips the natural oils from your skin causing dry skin, allergies and rashes. Many people with sensitivities to these ingredients find it hard to find soap that doesn‘t make things worse.”

All Udderly Naked products are also only lightly scented, making them great for people with high sensitivity to smells. Even better…Wendy recently took her test through the Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetic Guild and became the only (as far as she can tell) certified handcrafted soap maker in Nebraska!

And there are more products than just soap. Hard lotions, lip balm, laundry bars and even all natural bug repellent bars.

The best part: the products work. Wendy said at outdoor events people have purchased the bug bars to stop being bitten and been very satisfied.

Personally, I LOVE the lip balm. I met Wendy at the Nebraska Women in Agriculture conference in February. Her table was such an amazing draw…I had to smell everything. But what I was really after was something to help my extremely dry, chapped lips. I was so excited..I immediately noticed the difference right after applying the Passionate Pink Lip Tint. It smelled amazing and felt so good!
