Industry News: ‘MOR Cosmetics’ now known as ‘MOR Modern Apothecary’

Inspired by delight in personal luxury…

MOR Modern Apothecary – formerly known as MOR Cosmetics

…is the expression of a dynamic collaboration between two Australian designers, Deon St Mor and Dianna Burmas. Launched in 2001, MOR is globally recognised for its range of luxury bath, body and pampering products.

Inspired by exotic places, apothecary and ancient bathing rituals, the philosophy behind MOR is to provide a personalised sensory journey. It’s about taking the time to indulge and creating rituals to re-charge the body, the mind and the soul. Constantly refining the collections, MOR is always sourcing new ways to capture the essence of luxury and well-being.

For those of you who are not familiar with the word ‘Apothecary’ – it is a historical name for a medical professional who formulates and dispenses medica to physicians, surgeons and patients — a role now served by a pharmacist (or a chemist or dispensing chemist) and some caregivers.

By using the word ‘apothecary’, MOR delivers an old world almost medieval feel to their beautifully presented beauty and homewares with a modern twist. The below images remind us of such a time when the art of apothecary was a science.


Mar show 027 has launched a whole new range from MOR Modern Apothecary in time to be added to your Christmas list:


All MOR creations are inspired by tales of ancient civilisations, by-gone eras, travel, and art which create unique stories and collections that are continually refined and developed to capture the essence of luxury and modern apothecary.

 From the product’s initial inception, much care is taken in creating the finely blended formulations, selecting an elegant mix of unique fragrances and decadently designing the packaging.

MOR and Ry invite you to experience and surrender to the awakening of your senses, with the blending of old time ingredients, uniquely selected fragrances and luxuriously rich creations. Each collection is inspired by the tales of ancient civilisations, by-gone eras, travel, and art allowing the creation of a truly unique story, capturing and emanating a moment in time.
