  • Universal Beauty Products closes R&D for Color Cosmetics

    Posted by Bobzchemist on November 9, 2017 at 4:58 pm

    Universal Beauty Products decision to close their R&D department for color cosmetics has left five talented chemists unemployed in Vermont. If anyone here knows of any leads or opportunities, please let me know.

    I didn’t know that Universal Beauty Products even had a VT color cosmetics operation, Bob. Are we talking about the same parent company based here in Chicago’s suburbs?

    I don’t know. I got an urgent request from an old colleague of mine who has a VT phone number, so I just assumed they were in VT.  It would make more sense for them to be in Chicago. I’m somewhat relieved, actually - Chicago isn’t a hotbed of cosmetic chemist jobs, but it’s better than being stranded in VT.

    Well, if that is the case, there is a Midwest SCC meeting tonight, 14-NOV-17, so I may well see these folks there.
