About Us

Byron Compounding Chemist was established in 2013 by Pharmacist Michelle Loschiavo.  Our original location was in the namesake coastal town of Byron Bay in Northern NSW. A year later our second Byron Compounding Chemist location opened on the Gold Coast, Queensland. 

Our teams in Byron Bay and Gold Coast stores work closely with each other to deliver a friendly, efficient and high quality service to all of our customers and partners. 

The Pharmacists and Technicians at Byron Compounding Chemist are fully trained in all aspects of compounding practice and regularly attend accredited training conferences both locally and around Australia. The team pride themselves on their knowledge, expertise and passion for what they do. This is reflected in the quality and consistency of the products made.

 

Our Team

MICHELLE LOSCHIAVO
OWNER/SENIOR COMPOUNDING PHARMACIST, FORMULATOR, PLUMPED SKINCARE 

A lifetime interest in health, wellness and beauty led Michelle to study a Pharmacy degree at the University of Queensland. Prior to that, Michelle was a Registered Nurse, having worked in various sites including operating theatres and anaesthetics. 
After much time spent in the stunning coastal town of Byron Bay, Michelle identified the opportunity to provide the community with b.etter healthcare options, as unique as the individuals that lived, holidayed, worked and played there.

Despite the demands of mothering her three gorgeous kids, Michelle has managed to establish an award winning business that is one of the pillars of the Byron and Gold Coast Communities. Michelle has also created her own brand of super potent skincare, Plumped, which has enjoyed comparable success to it's parent brand.

Michelle's passion to bring b.etter health and well-being outcomes to customers is shared by her carefully selected teams at both Byron Compounding Chemist locations
