In this episode, I spoke with Belinda Carli, an international speaker on cosmetic science and director of the Australian Institute of Personal Care Sciences. She’s definitely a role model in the industry, winning the 2013 Annual Industry Award from CHC Australia for her contributions to research and training. This conversation was focused on fear mongering in the industry, why that’s probably not the best approach, especially considering new regulations coming into place by the end of 2019 in the EU, misinformation and steps moving forward. Have you been told that 80-100% of your cosmetic products penetrate your skin? That the cosmetic industry is completely unregulated? Or that natural will always be better, both for us and the environment? You’ll want to tune into this conversation! PS, this will be the first of many conversations with Belinda for our podcast. Stay tuned for more!
