Creative Cosmetic Chemistry


Hi, I'm Amanda and I've been working as a chemist in the cosmetic industry since 1997. While this should have been long enough for me to get my own hair quaffed and wrinkles erased, that's not my story!  Instead, I've focused my attention on producing the best research, formulations, course content, teaching and science writing I can muster to help you reach your business goals in a safe, reliable and evidence-backed way. 

Cosmetic Science is my passion, applying that to business in a way that facilitates growth and builds integrity is my purpose. 

Qualification wise I have an Honours Degree in Combined Science with a Chemistry major, A Graduate Certificate in Science Education and A Diploma in Cosmetic Science plus a few swimming certificates and guide badges I think...

When I'm not doing, thinking or teaching Cosmetic Chemistry I can be found wandering around my beautiful Blue Mountains (Dharug and Gundungurra) home or pretending to be a farmer at our family's off-grid woodland retreat in NSW's central west. Wiradjuri country.
