Who we are:
Dr Botanicals is London based vegan skincare brand.
We believe in a more humane, a more caring world. There are new ways to do things. If you are reading about vegan skincare for the first time, choosing a vegan skincare routine is important because of environmental and ethical reasons.
What is Vegan?
Vegetarians do not eat meat, fish, or poultry. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products such as eggs, dairy products, honey, leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products.
We believe oils, plants and natural ingredients are the way forward. Beautiful skin is achievable without the use of chemicals.
What is our Philosophy?
When we launched Dr Botanicals we created a truly vegan skincare range. Since 2016, Dr Botanicals has been pioneering not only in vegan skincare, but also developing truly natural skincare products. This has been long and complex work and in 2017 Dr Botanicals will be launching a totally natural range called - Apothecary Natural Skincare by Dr Botanicals.
Combining our passion of all things natural and our love for all things skincare, we have created a range we are very proud of; made from pure natural ingredients, paraben-free and without a harmful preservative in sight.
Where does Dr Botanicals come from?
Our founder, Richard Walker, first formed Dr Botanicals in 2012 with a small range of Vegan products, following in the footsteps of his father who first formulated Elderflower based skincare routines in the 1960's. Seeing the ever-increasing demand for botanical and natural skincare, he went across the world, sourcing the best natural active ingredients, and our new venture began to take shape.
We are continuously researching and developing new skincare treatments incorporating a range of natural, active ingredients ranging from blackcurrant seed oil to avocado.
We are committed to creating natural, vegan products that produce real, tangible results – showing the power of botanical and natural active ingredients. We want to be able to give you the choice to switch to kinder formulations – not only for your skin, but for the environment and world around us.
You can use Dr Botanicals safe in the knowledge that we are as kind to your skin as we are to animals.
