The Botanic Alchemist - About us

The Botanic Alchemist was founded in 2015 by Paula Daly.  After a lifelong passion for all things beauty related, Paula found herself becoming increasingly frustrated with the large sums of money spent on high end products without seeing any real results.  After a nasty skin reaction to a "natural" skincare product, Paula started blending her own pure botanical oils to help treat her skin condition. This yielded great results and The Botanic Alchemist was born. 

Our products are carefully crafted with pure botanical oils and plant based ingredients and do not contain any water. As our products are waterless, it means we have eliminated the need to include preservatives, fillers, emulsifiers and other synthetic ingredients. It also means our products contain higher levels of active ingredients, and the concentrated nature of the product means a little goes a long way resulting in less consumption, packaging, and transportation which is good news for the environment and your wallet.  

Our mission was to create a range of natural skincare products that contain simple and effective ingredients that provide the skin with only what it needs. 

We are avid animal lovers and we care deeply about the welfare of our furry little friends. We have made the committment to never use any animal derived ingredients in our products and all products are vegan, cruelty free and tested on humans.

Our products are carefully handcrafted in New Zealand at our Wellington headquarters.
