Molton Brown could claim to be the first designer brand of make-up and haircare products. Launched 25 years ago, its pioneering shampoos and conditioners were blended by hand and infused with herbs at a time when over-processing and psychedelic colour were the norm. Its make-up palette offered subtle shades of brown, beige and nude for lips and eyes. Started as a back-room operation by Caroline Collis of Browns, Molton Brown is now a multimillion pound business —with an updated look. Some of the products are still made by hand under the guidance of Dale Daxon Bowers, the company’s technical director. Still innovative and holistic in its philosophy, the range is constantly evolving and now uses Chinese ingredients newly available to the Western cosmetics market. Daxon Bowers, a chemistry graduate, became interested in Chinese ingredients after she watched the beneficial effects of cranial osteopathy on her dyslexic son. “I realised that energy channels are where it’s at now,” she says. “The Chinese have always believed that balancing one’s energy is the route to health and wellbeing, and they have always used herbs for healing and regenerating.” The first and most obvious ingredient she has used in Molton Brown products is ginseng— a well-known energiser. Now she has introduced Bai Ji, a herb known to reduce bleeding, making it great for shaving and skin products like the UltraLight Hydrator for Men.
