Health is the future of Beauty

Giulia Ubertallo, Senior Manager of Product Development and Innovation at L'Oreal 

Science is the backbone of L’Oreal Active Cosmetics Division - one of the four massive entities that group together the L’Oreal brands – and science sparks so many opportunities in the world of healthy beauty. 

The job of the teams working on product development and innovation is to pair science with creativity and analytical thinking, to stir the ingredients together in a powerful mix, and to create the next L’Oreal products that will be filling homes, purses, doctors’ offices, and more.

Drawing from the latest innovations in packaging, formulation and innovative technologies, product developers at L’Oreal Active Cosmetics constantly innovate, talk with healthcare professionals, listen to consumers and hope that their products will help create a better life for men, women, children and babies.

There cannot be beauty without health, and this mantra guides every step of the development process, from strict formulation charters to ultra-safe packaging.

Teaching Undergraduates: Different Pathways to Working with Students 

Bettie Davis and  Matthew Fisher,  Saint Vincent College

While the two of us have spent several decades teaching undergraduates at various institutions of higher education, we followed very different pathways to get to our final positions. Our experiences included working as academic staff, an adjunct instructor, and a tenure-track/tenured faculty position. One of us has taught entirely at small four year undergraduate colleges, the other has taught at large universities and community colleges as well as small undergraduate institutions. We’ll share our experiences over the past 30 years as well as some things to keep in mind for individuals interested in pursuing a teaching career after graduate school.
