In this episode of Indie Pioneers, we chat with Christina Su, founder of Australian brand Bayeco Skincare, about how her pharmaceutical training influenced the development of her evidence-based natural skin care line.

Su began her pharmaceutical training after her sister – a pharmacist too – suggested it would be a good idea.

“My sister said to me that you could work part-time as a pharmacist. So, for the next two years, my goal was to work part-time in pharmacy.”

Unfortunately, it did not turn out to be as cushy as she hoped.

“I remember thinking, this is such a boring course. It was about chemical structures, statistics – how was this ever going to help me?”

She did end up sticking through her training and became a fully-fledged pharmacist.

Over a decade in the pharmaceutical field proved to be an invaluable experience that would greatly influence her true calling – skin care.

“As a pharmacist, you are trained not to look at the brand itself. When I pick up a box of medication… I would always go straight to the ingredients list... and match the ingredients to the symptoms. I think that’s the same with skin care.”
