Compounding Chemist

Richard James Stenlake has been a Pharmacist in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for more than 40 years. He is the founder and owner of Richard Stenlake Compounding Chemist. Richard graduated from Sydney University in 1965 with a Bachelor of Pharmacy and opened his own retail pharmacy in Bondi Junction, Sydney in 1972.

In the mid 90’s, Richard became aware of Compounding Chemists in the USA. These compounding Chemists used modern techniques but old fashioned ideas; compounding medicines for individual patients. By customising treatment for individual patients they achieved extremely positive results compared to over the counter and prescription medications. Pursuing this interest Richard went to the USA in 1996 and completed a Compounding course in Houston, Texas.

Upon his return he introduced a compounding department into his retail pharmacy. The growth of the compounding practice became well received by doctors and patients. In 1998 Richard sold his retail business and created a stand-alone business in compounding. This was the original compounding business in Australia. The majority of the initial treatment was based around Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy BHRT and anti-aging medicine. With innovative research and development and use of technology Richard has developed many delivery systems and alternative medications.

We also specialise in making many discontinued medications, for example, Estradiol and Testosterone Implants, KH3, alternatives to Caferegot and Ergodryl. We also dispense motion sickness gels, veterinary products, dose specific thyroid products and can prepare many medications in a sustained release form.

Richard’s stand-alone laboratory can compound sterile and non-sterile medicines. Providing a range of eye drops including hypertonic saline and a number of preservative free preparations.
