Kim Guseli

Founder and Cosmetic Chemist 

Member of the Australian Society of Cosmetic Chemists and

The International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists

Hi!  I'm Kim, the founder and Cosmetic Chemist behind Botanical Skincare Lab. I've always had a passion for creating things.  I discovered a passion for cosmetic chemistry while studying to be a cosmetic chemist and began honing my skills in formulating and creating skincare products. 

My expertise and passion for skincare are reflected in every product that I create. I take a science-based approach to skincare, carefully selecting each ingredient for its unique benefits and ensuring that all of the formulations are backed by research and testing.

I am passionate about handcrafting all of my products and take great care in ensuring that every product that leaves the lab is of the highest quality.


When I'm not formulating new skincare products, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Stefano, and our two dachshunds, Dexter and Lucia. I'm passionate about living a healthy, active lifestyle and believe that taking care of your skin is just one aspect of overall wellness.

My passion for skincare and dedication to nourishing, effective formulations is at the heart of Botanical Skincare Lab. My commitment to creating high-quality products and providing excellent customer service is what sets my brand apart, and my love of formulating and creating skincare shines through in every product I create.  


I believe that everyone deserves to have healthy, radiant skin, and am committed to helping people achieve their best skin yet.

Support Team and (Very Loud!) Doorbells

No words needed to describe the invaluable role provided by these two munchkins.

They have been our loyal companions, providing endless snuggles and cuddles, for the past ten years.

If you arrive to pick up a click-and-collect order they'll let me know you're here.

Dachshund IVDD Support

Here’s a bit of the behind-the-scenes about why we love and proudly support Dachshund IVDD Support Australia. 


Through the education of Dachshund IVDD Support Australia we knew straight away what to do when our precious Lucia was suddenly struck with IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease) and was paralysed overnight in December 2018. 


We were aware that 1 in 4 dachshunds will be diagnosed with a back condition during their lifetime so we did everything we could to avoid it.  We have never allowed Dexter and Lucia jump on furniture, always used ramps, kept them healthy etc.  But unfortunately, sometimes even though all precautions are taken, it still strikes. 


If it hadn’t been for the ongoing awareness campaigns of Dachshund IVDD Support Australia we wouldn’t have been as prepared, and would have been lost without their support during the heart-wrenching time. 


Through our social media pages we will be sharing more about Lucia’s journey and the support from the Dachshund IVDD Support Australia.  We are grateful every day for their care, love and guidance.
