LabMuffin Beauty Science Blog

This informative and often amusing blog is the brainchild of Michelle Wong, a chemist and science educator from Sydney, Australia. Using a mix of text, photos, videos, and even the occasional slideshow, Wong explains the science behind cosmetics and sorts fact from fiction. With a variety of topics covered, from sunscreen and vitamin C, to misinformation and marketing, viewers will be sure to find great content to enjoy. Blog posts on the site are organized by keyword, with some posts more heavily science-focused, while others are sorted according to specific cosmetics brands. Visitors can see the most recent posts on the page linked above or click "Browse" to access the full archive. Wong is a qualified cosmetic chemist with a PhD in organic medicinal chemistry and ample experience in science education and communication. This site would be helpful in a number of settings, offering a particularly good way to help students see the direct link between science and the products that many use on a daily basis. Wong cites and links to relevant scientific literature in her posts, encouraging users to take a deeper dive.
