Ben is a compounding pharmacist and formulating chemist who is passionate about shaking up the pharmacy, healthcare and personal care industries through community pharmacy based compounding. Whilst he has a deep understanding of the health benefits compounding may have for an individual, his specialty is the skin and creating dermatological products that foster a healthy human skin microbiome. As the personal care and cosmetics industry gradually and completely uncouples from sound medical science, Ben is showing that skincare made in a microbiome friendly manner can in fact greatly enhance clinical results.
Ben Graduated from the University of Queensland and then spent a significant amount of time working as a registered pharmacist in England, Scotland and Wales. Upon returning to Australia, he noticed the same large gaps in pharmaceutical treatment existed and decided to address this. In 2012 he opened his first compounding pharmacy in regional NSW followed by a second compounding pharmacy in Qld.
As well as being involved in formulating skin products for use in clinical trials, Ben has delivered webinars, lectures to medical professionals as well as written papers on the skin microbiome as a therapeutic target and the importance of correct formulation.
Ben’s approach to skin health has been aligned through Formulae with nutritional, hormonal and gut microbiome health, giving a complete management of personal health and wellbeing.
