THE ORGANIC PHARMACY
QUESTION: What does this London-based beauty and wellness brand have in common with Adam and Eve and Steve Jobs?
ANSWER: The humble apple.
Back in the 1990’s, pharmacist Margo Marrone became fascinated by homeopathy, a holistic approach to medicine that uses natural ingredients in plants and minerals to treat illness and promote wellness. It also made her aware of the overwhelming health benefits of organic foods long before those benefits became universally recognized. Which brings us back to those apples.
“I was shocked that a single apple could be sprayed 16 times with pesticides, herbicides and fungicides,” Margo explains in an interview with Dermstore.com. “It opened a can of worms for me and I soon discovered that all the chemicals that went into our food were making us ill. I then found out that the chemicals in our everyday toiletries were also toxic and so I wanted to have a place where people could trust, know that everything was safe and get advice from qualified professionals. This was over the course of eight years and then finally in 2002 I opened the first The Organic Pharmacy in London.”
That first clinic was located on the iconic King’s Road in Chelsea, one of the capital’s premier destinations for trend-setting brands. It catered to the health and skincare needs of customers via a fully stocked homeopathic and herbal dispensary, skin clinic and medi spa – all conveniently under one roof.
Today, The Organic Pharmacy researches, formulates and manufactures its own products in its London laboratory, each made with love, science and expertise in small batches to ensure strict quality control and maximum potency. It has developed a cult-like following with an international clientele in more than three dozen countries.

Q. Any final tips?
A. Like many people these days, I am spending A LOT of time on Zoom calls which has made me overly sensitive about my skin looking good. Makeup is not part of my daily routine, so it’s all about skincare for me, and that’s another reason why The Organic Pharmacy works so well.
