Skin care ingredients are a passion that includes three areas of endeavor. First, to keep searching the world for interesting (sustainable) ingredients that can positively impact all skin issues. Second, to participate in the development of new high-tech ingredients for aging skin. And third, to provide tools to skin professionals that can help them gain a sense of power and order around the massive amounts of skin care ingredients they're confronted with.
