In 1998, Botani paved the way for a new era of eco-conscious, toxin-free, plant based skincare – inspiring their brand name which literally translates to ‘plant’ in Greek.

Barbara Filokostas, ND Botani Founder, Naturopath & Herbalist had frustrated clients come to her with their ‘last resort’ skincare problems after trying conventional methods to treat their dehydration, acne, fungal conditions, ageing, sensitive and eczema prone skin.

Commonly prescribed products were either full of toxic chemicals or were ineffective due to high levels of buffer ingredients such as water.

Barbara wanted to provide them with a toxin-free, natural skincare solution that was as good for their skin as it was for their wellbeing and that of the environment.
