Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am the cosmetic formulator behind Botanical Formulations. I have a keen interest in natural skincare, body care and haircare products mainly because they are challenging to get right but also, because, on whole they are sustainable and thus better for the environment. I also have my own award winning natural skincare range. Launching and running this business has given me sound knowledge of the market, legislation and practicalities of launching my own range in the EU.
I believe that cosmetic formulation is not just about designing a product, it is also about understanding biology, microbiology, psychology and cultural perceptions of beauty. Formulating for me is a form of art, it is about being creative and having fun in this ever changing world of cosmetic science. When I formulate for others it is also about getting to the heart of what my customer wants so that I can help them bring the best possible product to market.
I offer two services: Off-the-Shelf Formulations and Custom Formulations. You can find out more about these below.
