I just wanted to let everyone know that I’ll be giving a talk at the next Lake Erie Chapter SCC so if you happen to be in the area, be sure to stop by. Here are the details.
The Lake Erie Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists Presents:
“Skepticism and the Cosmetic Chemist – How to Distill Beauty Science from Beauty Bogus”
While people have always held odd beliefs about cosmetics, treatment products, and beauty, the Information Age has made the propagation of erroneous beliefs much easier. Clever marketing messages, misremembered headlines and anecdotal stories shared on discussion boards have all contributed to the rise of a less critical consumer. Unfortunately, this lack of skepticism can also affect cosmetic scientists. In this presentation we’ll review some common beauty knowledge and determine whether it is science or nonsense. We’ll also talk about some logical tools you can use to protect yourself from falling for Beauty BS.
