Beauty is engineering

Creating colours, scents, and getting textures right are all ways that engineering can play a role in beauty. Engineers make sure the ingredients are sourced sustainably, and they're vital for production and packaging too, making sure thousands of quality products get onto shop shelves. From perfumes to nail varnish, moisturisers to mascara - the cosmetic industry needs engineers, to create the products that let you express yourself.

Olivia has always been passionate about the environment, so she decided that being an engineer was the best way to make an impact. Working for Lush and sourcing and creating their chemicals in a sustainable way has given Olivia the power to make a difference.
