  • Hello! My name is Dr Sara Robb. The children in my science club call me Dr Sara so that is what I chose as my username.

    I have a PhD in Neuroscience from Hershey Medical School. My thesis was  Mechanisms of Oxidative Stress in Neurodegenerative Diseases. Pretty radical, I know. 

    I moved to the UK to do my post-doc over 20 years ago. My meandering path eventually lead me to my new career- teaching beekeepers how to make cosmetics and helping them meet all the EU legal requirements. 

    Beekeepers sell their honey at markets and are interested in value-added products that can be sold alongside their honey. Cosmetics are ideal because beeswax, honey, and propolis are on-trend, functional ingredients. I write recipes for soaps, creams, and other products that include bee ingredients.

    My main activities are running workshops for beekeepers at The National Honey Show and British Beekeeping Association Spring Convention, writing books and articles, and as a cosmetic safety assessor for Verdigris Cosmetic Solutions.

    I am really pleased to join Cosmetic Science Talk! 
    Dr Sara
