The Chemistry of Cosmetics introduced by Dr Meryem Benohoud (Lead Product Development Scientist, Keracol)
Can the proliferation of products made by the cosmetics industry be manufactured responsibly, without relying on chemicals derived from fossil fuels or crops grown on prime arable land? What materials are needed for our cleanliness and beauty? If a product claims it is “natural”, what does that mean?
Dr Meryem Benohoud will discuss the science behind cosmetics products, and the use of genuinely natural and environmentally sustainable ingredients.
Cafe Sci Leeds was set up to encourage understanding and debate about topical scientific research and issues in an informal setting. Speakers are invited to present a short talk on an area of science in which they have been involved which is then followed by questions and comments.
