Engineer me beautiful – Engineering and Make-up


 Is it safe to use? How long will it last? Will it dry out or become unusable? Is the environment harmed while making it?


One of the jobs that a chemical engineer can do is work with make- up or cosmetics. There are many different aspects to this job including understanding how chemicals react and how safe they are for people. Working with chemicals is only one part of the job of a chemical engineering. They will also be involved in designing new products – a new range of make up for example. How will these be formulated in a way that uses chemicals in a new way?


Chemical engineers may also be involved in how the manufacturing plant makes the product. Chemical engineers also work with other experts such as lab chemists who test the chemicals, and marketing professionals who want to know more about the properties of the make-up so they can advertise it.
