While this site is primarily about the science of cosmetics, it is also about helping future chemists get cosmetic science jobs. If fact, we have a whole section of articles about cosmetic chemist careers.
So, whenever we hear of opportunities we like to post them and give people a chance to land a cosmetic science job. Here are a couple that we have recently been alerted to.
