Meet the Faces

These people all work within the cosmetic, toiletry and perfumery industry and have used science in different ways. In some cases, their roles now involve very little science, and in other cases, their jobs are extremely technical. But all their careers are interesting so why don’t you meet the faces of science?

If you are interested in following a career in the cosmetics industry, look at the courses on offer at www.scs.org.uk. There is also interesting and useful information on some of the cosmetics company websites. Click here for more information
