Scottish scientist Sir Alexander Fleming’s, the man who would discover penicillin, spend his life working on medical science, but did you know the discovery of penicillin was a momentous lab accident? A Petri dish was left by the window and when sir Fleming left for a short holiday his lab assistant decided to open the window to ‘air’ the room out. When sir Fleming returned he discovered a green mold called Penicillium notatum had contaminated his Petri dishes in the lab … and were killing some of the bacteria he'd been growing!
Such a simple accident also led to the discovery of Therapeutics Skin Care (though not as life saving as penicillin, but still important nun the less). A Research & Development company based in Worcestershire were attempting to develop a new formulation to maintain hydration levels in the skin through Botany (plant extracts & Vital Oils mainly) without skin irritation.
The discovery came by accident when the company’s founder had burn’t his finger in the office and couldn’t find anything nearby to stop the swelling. He applied a oil on his desk that was currently in development and carried on his day. Within a few minutes the swelling had stopped and diminished completely. “What caused that to happen?” asked the founder to his head scientist. His scientist stated the therapeutic grade essential oils are anti-inflamattory and anti-bacterial.
2 years later after much research therapeutics skin care range was launched, Using scientifically proven botany extracts, naturally medicinal essential oils and therapeutic graded vital oils in all its products to help with a variety of skin problems.
