Border Compounding Pharmacy is offering the Albury-Wodonga community an ever-increasing range of individually personalised health, wellness and skincare solutions. Proud joint winners of the Albury Wodonga Business Awards Most Outstanding Micro Business category, Border Compounding Pharmacy is now in a new central location in Smollett Street, Albury.
The pharmacy boasts a larger state-of-the-art laboratory, which allows for development of an even wider range of products. The latest of these are tailor-made skincare products, made on site, uniquely for the individual following a skincare analysis.
Owners Lee McLoughlan and Ben Eshelby are both registered compounding pharmacists and cosmetic scientists. People can visit the pharmacy and receive a free skin analysis, and then purchase skin care products that contain minimal preservatives and are made on site, in front of the customer.
Ben said: “As pharmacists, we create skincare that makes your skin healthy, we focus on what the products can do for your skin without all the perfumes, additives and marketing tricks. We started creating skincare for conditions like eczema, sensitive skin, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne and rosacea and this lead on to custom skincare products using nutraceutical and peptides." Albury Wodonga Business Awards chair David Koschitzke congratulated the business on the win.

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.
