Intermountain West Society of Cosmetic Chemists

Personal Care Truth is pleased to announce that our very own Cindy Jones, Ph.D., is speaking at the Intermountain West Society of Cosmetic Chemists, November 14, 2012, in Salt Lake City.

After earning a Ph.D. in biochemistry, Dr. Jones did medical research and medical writing before her interest in cosmetics developed. With a love of all things herbal and natural she found her passion with cosmetics by combining a knowledge of chemistry, natural products and herbalism. She now owns Sagescript Institute, a farm based cosmetic science company.

Cindy’s topic of discussion is, “Biochemistry 101 for Formulators”:

Biochemistry is the chemistry of life or more specifically the study of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. Most cosmetic ingredients fall into the first three of these categories of biochemicals. We’ll examine the basics of these molecules and how they relate to cosmetic ingredients.
