The Story behind Green Alchemy

It all started when a Chemist and a Biologist met on Facebook. We realised that we had a similar passion for beautiful natural ingredients and safe, sustainable cosmetics. Our shared love of botanical oils led us to realise that we wanted to help others bring the power of plants into their skincare range. After working together on a series of online courses for skincare entrepreneurs, we founded Green Alchemy with the intention of supporting the industry in creating truly natural cosmetics.
