The year was 1973. Molton Brown opened at 58 South Molton Street in London's Mayfair as a hair salon. The salon became a hit and it didn't stop at that. The first retail products were hand-mixed upstairs from nettles and camomile; Dale Daxon Bowers joined the team in 1978 fresh from Mary Quant cosmetics, and set to work in a makeshift lab in the kitchen above Browns boutique. Dale's passion, creativity and belief that nature would be the focus for her new inventions, was the source of a whole new range. By the 1980s the salon had evolved into the Molton Brown emporium where Dale's plant-based make-up, hair, body, skin and grooming products were sold to those in the know. Now you can experience Molton Brown's creations in more than 70 countries world-wide.
