Words From Our Chemist

When I was 5 years old my aunt fed my makeup fascination. With each visit, my aunt would offer me one of her old lipsticks. I started a collection of my aunt’s half-used lipsticks, but I only put them on occasionally, because they were “real” lipsticks unlike my Toys-R-Us makeup set and stuff like that was hard to come by as a 5-year old; it had to be savored. As I individually cherished each lipstick I came to appreciate makeup. I started spending time at my bathroom sink in hopes of creating a beauty product masterpiece. I combined lotions and creams and conditioners and pieces from my Toys-R-Us makeup set. None of my childhood mixtures made big in the beauty industry, but this experience was the beginning of my love for chemistry.

I decided to major in chemistry at Brigham Young University. I hadn’t taken chemistry since I was a sophomore in high school, but I liked the idea of chemistry and maybe memories of my bathroom-made-beauty-lab were floating through my mind. Chemistry was hard though – most of my classmates were the born-to-be-chemists-or-die type of students, and I didn’t even know where to find carbon on the periodic table. My first year was a struggle, and I vowed to quit science, but then I didn’t. I took more chemistry classes the next year and even more the next year and the next. I started really liking chemistry. It was hard, but it was rewarding, and I was in a much better environment for chemistry experimentation than my bathroom.

I continued this love for “bathroom beauty chemistry”. In my analytical chemistry class I created my own project to evaluate the alcohol content of high-end perfumes and analyzed trends between alcohol content and price. I reported on the mechanics of sunscreen. And just this summer I interned at Endocyte, a cancer-research company as a discovery chemist. I would create and purify anticipated cancer-targeting drugs. Currently I teach chemistry and work for Borboleta Beauty. I love what I do. As a chemist I analyze the world around me and as a teacher I care about other’s understanding. As I write each post I will strive to do both. I will explain the chemistry of Borboleta to help you better care for your adhesive and your clients to make the most out of your Borboleta experience. I am so excited to be here and am grateful for all of you. I hope you check in frequently.
