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.

It definitely is a historic time. With all the fear and uncertainty in the world at the moment, we are experiencing things not seen since the mid 20th Century. Shortages on basic manufactured necessities such as toilet paper, foodstuffs and even medicines.
Pharmacists have the skills and expertise to prepare medicines themselves and have done so for hundreds of years. A modern compounding pharmacist has the equipment, resources and access to a wide range of raw materials to make replacement products in many situations. Should you be unable to find a medicine for yourself or your family, speak to your Border Compounding pharmacist immediately.
Washing your hands is a powerful weapon.
In the current environment where people are rushing out to buy sanitisers and washes to kill off COVID-19 and prevent its transmission, there has been a raft of misinformation on what to use and what works. This hasn’t been helped by shortages and people trying to find alternatives in the face of sold out sanitisers.
