Our Story

Taylor Brown Apothecary, a brand built on the shoulders of two great fathers

Dr. Ivory Lee Taylor’s father emphasized the importance of learning and listening to detail. As a builder of high-quality antebellum homes and custom-made cabinets, his unique brand became inculcated into his customers’ personal lifestyles. His brand stood for superior craftsmanship, top-quality materials, design details, inclusion of culture, and advanced structural techniques, all enveloped in ingenuity and honesty.

As a pharmacist and dentist, Dr. Joyce Renee Brown’s father instilled in his daughter the understanding that caring and excellent communication were as important as the treatment of any medical or health problem.

Dr. Ivory Lee Taylor and Dr. Joyce Renee Brown, co-owners of Taylor Brown Apothecary, convey these fundamental practices in the competitive marketplace as a high-end, luxury topical–bespoke apothecary. Dr. Taylor and Dr. Brown are seizing the opportunity to showcase their brand and products as a way to build personal lifestyles of self-awareness, emphasizing, “Your Health – Your Life.”

Dr. Taylor honorably served in the military for 20 years with half of those years living in Europe. He has been an entrepreneur for more than 17 years. Through this experience, “Your Health – Your Life” became a personal lifestyle expectation and focus. Credit is extended to Dr. Brown concept creator of “Your Health – Your Life” during her 35-year career as a pharmacist and bespoke compounder.

The Taylor Brown Apothecary brand was founded in 2003 as a brick-and-mortar prescription retailer and compounding pharmacy in Memphis, Tennessee. It is now a high-end topical–bespoke apothecary brand on a digital platform. The products line delivers an effective skin care result and a luxury experience without compromising your health.

Their Promise: To help you discover a personal lifestyle of passion, expectation, and a trusting relationship by offering herbal oil, ointment and anti-aging topical-bespoke products to serve your skin’s wellness needs in every way.
