About Us

Oxford Biolabs® is a nutraceutical and cosmeceutical company that develops a range of naturally-based products aimed at helping people avoid unwanted signs of ageing, such as hair loss, premature greying, and skin ageing. It was founded by scientists formerly of the University of Oxford under the leadership of Dr. Thomas Whitfield. Since 2009, the company has been pursuing the development and distribution of scientifically tested, drug-free nutraceutical products backed by world-class research.

Oxford Biolabs® has adopted a customer-oriented strategy that incorporates alternative natural therapies and ingredients. This bears no resemblance to the practice of some companies that prefer to limit their product range to drug-based formulas, which can often result in unwanted side effects.
