Hi, my name is Saul and I formulate and develop the products we use every day, I am passionate about sun protection, skin care and cosmetics, more than that however, I ensure they are safe, effective and of the highest quality before the reach the supermarket shelves and your skin.
I find there is a lot of misinformation on line and in the media relating to sun protection, skin care and cosmetics that negatively influences our purchasing decision so we end up spending more, or buying the wrong product entirely. I will attempt to explain common misconceptions in simple terms and discuss any other topics that will allow us all to better understand the products we use.
I am a research and development manager with over 15 years of experience working in the sun protection, skin care and cosmetics industry; I have a degree in chemistry and diplomas in safety science and formulation science. I have worked for Australia’s largest manufacturing organizations, the companies that make and fill the product for the brands we bring into our homes. I have worked alongside global heavyweights, including; Proctor & Gamble, Unilever, Colgate-Palmolive and Revlon, but also local brands such as Fudge Hair Care, Natio, Nude by Nature, Face of Australia, Cancer Council and Australian retailers Coles and Woolworths among many others.
I don’t have an agenda, I don’t work for a specific brand and I’m not trying to sell you anything, I’ll be sharing my professional experience in the hope of demystifying the products we use every day, supported by as much fact and hard evidence as possible.
This blog is for anyone interested in better understanding the sun protection, skin care and cosmetic products they use and I invite everyone to send me any questions they may have and I will endeavor to answer them for you.
