Hi, my name is Sandra, and I am Australian. I have now retired (early) and have had a varied career starting in Food Technology and have a degree in that. I worked in a laboratory for around 10 years based in the Food Industry. I have also worked in Finance, Shipping & Logistics and lastly in the Publishing Industry (Magazines and Books). Since retiring I have gone back to my routes (lab work) and only started with cosmetic formulating about 2 years ago – I am having so much fun with it just making products for myself, my family, and friends. I have Rosacea and since making my own products have seen my skin improve. So I am loving making skin products (face and body) and learning all the time. I am thankful I have been accepted into the forum and I hope I have a little to offer.
