Beauty industry gives back

The beauty industry was in Panama from February 8-13 to work with dozens of local women to provide service and education on personal care product development, hygiene and wellness and technology.

The group teamed up with the Center for Panamanian Women (CEMP), which works with lowincome women located in indigenous areas to improve their quality of life by strengthening their leadership skills, promoting the formation and strengthening of grassroots women’s organizations for community management and political advocacy, and enhancing skill sets to help provide women with a trade. 

The Panama Beauty Project has been developed by Chris Humberstone of Humberstone International. Acme-Hardesty is the primary sponsor, along with support from Chemyunion and Croda. In addition, representatives from Ashland, Gourmet Body Pastries, Happi, the International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists (IFSCC), Melaleuca and the New York Chapter of the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (NYSCC) have assisted the project

During the week, the beauty industry executives provided hands-on practical demonstrations including mixing coconut oil with fragrance, cold blending of ingredients, makeup and hair styling sessions, internal beauty and hygiene discussions and soap-making.
