Hello, I’m Laura Lam-Phaure!
As a published scientist and creative problem-solver with analytical laboratory and manufacturing experience, my current role as SOS Beauty’s R&D Innovation Manager allows me to exercise my expertise in formulation design, product innovation, and lab management.
These aspects of my career have enabled me to build strong client relationships by acting as a technical consultant to meet client needs and creating a dynamic lab experience to enhance overall performance and efficiency.
Additionally, my role as Technical Writer at Cosmetic and Toiletries, allows me to showcase my creative and literary pursuits, where I curate content for the “Formulating on Trend” column to help educate readers and scientists about new innovative products and ingredients.
