Our experienced staff are trained in pharmaceutical science and are passionate about compounding.
|Ben Eshelby B.Pharm., Dip.Form.Chem. (BCP Director)
Ben founded Border Compounding Pharmacy to address the needs of those whose pharmacy requirements were not being met by commercially available products. His passion is compounding – a pharmacist’s traditional activity – and the associated ‘outside the square’ thinking required to solve complex pharmaceutical challenges. Ben is a registered pharmacist with over 15 years of experience in three countries. He is also a qualified formulating chemist with specialist training in the formulation of personal care products. He has a particular interest in nutrigenomics and the use of individualised supplements to reduce the incidence of chronic diseases. When he’s not in the compounding lab, he can generally be found adventuring with his wife in the local Australian high country.
|Lee McLoughlan B.Pharm., Cert.Adv.Cos.Sci. (BCP Director)

He has over 15 years of experience working as a registered pharmacist in both community and hospital pharmacies throughout Australia and Ireland. Seeking a greater challenge, he joined BCP and completed training in the formulation of cosmetic products. Outside of work, Lee is kept busy by his two boys, his keen interest in sports, and his love of swimming and basketball.
