Invest Albury Wodonga: Business Feature: Albury Wodonga to the world

Six years ago, recognising the insurmountable hurdles, intense competition and sky high overheads associated with starting a business in Brisbane, or any other capital city, Ben Eshelby sought the chance to start a business in a regional city.

Disenchanted with the traditional community pharmacy business model, Ben knew he wanted to create a business that provided tailored solutions for its customers.

“More and more frequently, people are requesting and requiring medicines that are not commercially made,” Ben said.

“We make personalised pharmaceutical and skincare solutions for those who cannot find what they need off-the-shelf.”

Border Compounding Pharmacy started in Lavington in 2013, before relocating to the Albury CBD at the end of 2017.

Why does my moisturiser sting?

When a moisturiser stings your skin there’s possibly a number of things at play, but generally it’s caused by one ingredient that’s common to all moisturisers: water. It is true that alcohols, fragrances and other ingredients can irritate your skin, but generally they are in a very low concentration and shouldn’t cause any stinging.

Most people will have experienced the slight burning when pool water or tap water gets up their nose. This is caused by a difference in salt concentrations between the pool or tap water and the water or fluid that exists in the cells of the nose. The cells of the nose rapidly swell causing the nerves to send signals to the brain that something is not right!
