BSc Honours (Geology, Zoology, Botany and Genetics) and Managing Director and a co-founder of Y Natural Skincare
Barbara Gare is the Managing Director and a co-founder of Y natural skincare. She’s a passionate environmentalist and started her career as a geophysicist, hoping to be a change agent in the oil and gas industry. She then moved into other ‘blokey’ roles, eventually shifting her focus to the beauty industry in 2005, again to be an agent for positive change in a whole different world.
Barbara has a BSc Honours (Geology, Zoology, Botany and Genetics) and studied for a BA in Chinese, German, Spanish and International Studies. She also has an MBA from the Adelaide Graduate School of Business, which was undertaken as the 1998 winner of the prestigious Guy Lloyd Scholarship.
Barbara describes herself as ‘the Consummate Generalist’. She loves running, dogs, wine, travel, maps, books, science, art, comedy, music and other shiny things. She’s even tutored German Braille, done stand-up comedy and won a World Championship in a demanding-though-little-known sport. She’s a scientist, business owner and news junkie, and she’s delighted at the opportunity to share some diverse, fascinating and empowering knowledge with you.
