My initial interest in science started at an early in prmary school when I discovered the world of crystals and chemistry. Fast-forward a few years and I studied at University in the USA picking up awards for science and medical research studies. I then studied at Imperial College in the Orangic Chemistry Department of Imperial College. In the top ten world Ranking Universties with my Masters and PhD.

In my work, I like to place emphasis on self-reliance and self-discovery, meaning that I prefer to take the role of a facilitator or a mentor, rather than being the one with the answers. We like to keep to Clean and Green Formulations when possible. We care about the enviroment and help clients and Brands. My methodology follows the current research in the field overall, and I take care of keeping on top of all new developments and always keeping the Client involved in their Formulation.

We actively participate in more than twelve conferences and seminars annually, as they provide us with valuable opportunities to expand our knowledge. Our primary goal is to gain insights from the formulations and research work of others, particularly in the academic field. By attending these events, we strive to stay abreast of the latest advancements and breakthroughs. Additionally, we believe in the importance of knowledge sharing and giving back to the community. Therefore, we also dedicate ourselves to teaching and presenting our own research findings in our lab. This reciprocal approach allows us to both learn from others and impart our knowledge, fostering a fruitful exchange of ideas and contributing to the collective progress in our field.

Semiars a Year, In 2023 we help host two Seminars for Personal Care Industry for Royal Society of Chemisty. The first was Sustaibility in Cosmetics and the Second New Trends in Nano Encapsulations In Pharmacutical and Cosmetic Industry.
