A Physiologist with a background in Pharmacology, Rachel Williams BSc(Hons), MSc(Dist) studied at both the University of Nottingham and the University of Wales, before beginning a successful 10 year career within academia.

Her published research primarily focussed on the physiological & neuroendocrine effects of exercise, stress and climate on the skin & body and led to research consultancy & support roles for Team GB spanning 3 Olympic Games.


With her unique understanding of how the skin responds & adapts to environmental challenges over time, her passion for beauty, travel & adventure, Rachel was inspired create Albus & Flora, following her time skiing in the French Alps – seeing first hand the acute & chronic damage UV could cause on un-protected lips.
