The work of a true skincare professional

Compounding Pharmacists - Border Compounding Pharmacy

As pharmacists we’re trained to understand medicine and we’re trained to understand skin. As a profession, we have a history of more than 900 years of developing and preparing dermatological agents. That’s a lot of accumulated wisdom.

Once upon a time, a cream for the skin would have been considered a ‘medicine’ and in the realm of a pharmacist to create. Today, a similar cream would be considered a ‘cosmetic’ and be the responsibility of an industrial chemist and a marketing department to create. Many modern creams are cheap, smell nice, look nice, feel nice and will last on the shelf for many years.

Unfortunately, there is no substitute for a pharmacist’s knowledge and experience in developing and preparing skincare products. When a pharmacist designs a cream, it is created with a true understanding of human physiology, biochemistry and histology. Every ingredient is analyzed and used only if it is of benefit to enhancing the health of the skin. A pharmacist will be able to tell you in detail what every ingredient used is and why they have used it. A pharmacist will be able to adapt your skincare to include or exclude virtually any ingredient you chose.

When a pharmacist prepares your personal skincare product, you have a professional with 900 years of acquired skills and knowledge at your service. You won’t receive a run of the mill cosmetic cream, you will receive the work of a true skincare professional that will make your skin the healthiest its ever been.

Can a compounding pharmacy help with migraines and headaches? Absolutely. 

At Border Compounding pharmacy, our pharmacists can combine a number of ingredients and turn them into a gel that can be applied to the first 2 molars on the top gum. You can see from the diagram above this corresponds to the maxillary nerve. By telling this nerve to stop with the pain, you can get it to tell all the other ones in the trigeminal nerve meeting point to stop with the pain too.

If you suffer from migraines or headaches and want something that really works, talk to our compounding pharmacists about designing a formulation specifically for you.
