I am currently seeking for cosmetic chemists to develop a product. I have found some contacts in LinkedIn, and there are contract chemists with other company but still want to meet me for advice.
So my question are:
1. Is there a possible chance that they might just want to steal or hear that product ideas for the benefit of their existing company?
2. What regulatory should I know when working with chemists, in order to protect the idea of the product, product and formula license?
3. Where is the best places to seek for local cosmetic chemist (based in Melbourne)?
Please give me some advices. Thank you very much.
