The best from nature Dr Jackon's cosmetics

Dr Jackson’s is a niche cosmeceutical company created from 21 years of pharmacognosy research, utilising the best from nature. Pharmacognosy is the study of medicines derived from natural sources and for over two decades, founder Dr Simon Jackson has been doing research in laboratories around the world, carrying out in-vitro and in-vivo testing of indigenous plants and traditional medicines sourced everywhere from Europe and the Amazon to Indonesia to Sub-Saharan Africa, and collaborating with the best formulation scientists to produce his range of skincare.


Learning from traditional healers, Dr Jackson’s uses techniques which mimic the way that the natural ingredients used are extracted at source, and rigorously tests them to ensure purity as well as ascertain they are at a concentration high enough to be effective.

Dr Jackson did his PhD at Kings College, University of London, specialising in African medicinal plants in the treatment of malignant melanoma and solar keratosas, working alongside the melanoma unit at Charing Cross Hospital, London, followed by a post-doctoral research position at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew specialising in skin disorders.

Alongside global research expeditions and academia, Dr Jackson spent many years in East London collaborating with creatives and fashion personalities, and this experience has also come to influence the spirit and aesthetic of the brand.

Dr Jackson founded Dr Jackson’s in 2008, and now lives in Somerset.


Based on 21 years of pharmacognosy research, Dr Jackson has developed his 02 NIGHT SKIN CREAM using natural extracts of Kigelia, Baobab, Frankincense oil and Mango seed extract.

An intensive night cream, the products in this rich formula work together to heal, repair and deeply moisturise. Mango seed extract melts onto the skin and elicits a powerful emollient oil that softens and regenerates, while healing Frankincense oil works to smooth the skin and heal any visible damage. The regenerative phytochemical properties of Kigelia improve elasticity and ensure a seamless and blemish-free complexion, while Baobab helps to alleviate dryness and damage to reveal a rejuvenated complexion.
