Ann, what does ‘Science for Good’ mean to you?
“I like to think of it as “doing good science for good.” Good science is repeatable, defensible, and logical. That’s the way we design studies for our sponsors who are developing new and innovative personal care products. Good, solid science in the lab keeps consumers safe.”
