Pure Beauty - The Organic Pharmacy.
For those of you who are on a quest for the purest of all pure beauty products we think we may have found the Holy Grail for you! In a small corner of west London stands an inconspicuous looking store which, once you are on the inside, turns into a treasure trove of lotions and potions in their purest organic form. The Organic Pharmacy is a one-stop shop for the best in natural beauty and health care. Amongst other well known brands such as Dr Hauschka and Living Nature, they make their own brand, a comprehensive range which is hand made in small batches by the in-store homeopathic pharmacists.The Pharmacy also has a health clinic where you can have a general health assessment, a skin consultation, and they can design a personal detox programme for you.They have herbal and homeopathic remedies for all sorts of ailments and even have special pre-prepared ‘kits’ such as the ‘Quit Smoking Kit’ or the ‘The Complete Acne Kit’. For that extra bit of luxury their beauty rooms offer some amazing treatments; their Rose Crystal Lymphatic facial is considered by many to best one of the best in London. Although as with most things organic, especially in London, they come at rather a higher price than your average beauty treatment, so treat is the operative word, but one that might just be worth saving your pennies for.
The Organic Pharmacy was started by Margo and Francesco Marrone and their London shop has been doing good business since 2002. They tell us that ‘The Organic Pharmacy is the first and only pharmacy in the world dedicated to health and beauty using organic products and treatments. Fully registered with The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, we choose to specialize ONLY in herbs, homeopathy and organic skin care.’ The Organic Pharmacy promise is: No artificial preservatives, No artificial colourants, No artificial fragrances, No petrochemicals, No harsh detergents,No DEA, TEA, No toxic ingredients, No animal testing.
The good news for those of you who don’t pass through the London vicinity on a regular basis is that The Organic Pharmacy is stocked in various outlets around the world. Including Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and in America – although I am afraid its only the New Yorkers who are in luck!
