Looking good sometimes takes the help of a cosmetic chemist. Creating safe products that can combine natural and artificial products that do the job they are designed for can be a challenging job and also a satisfying job. Seeing a product you developed on a commercial can make your day. This interview provides an overview of the field and also provides advice for students both males and females.
