Recently, the Bella Aurora team had an enriching experience, exchanging viewpoints and know-how with the students in the Cosmetic and Dermopharmacy Master at the Centre of Superior Studies in the Pharmaceutical Industry (CESIF) in Barcelona, Spain.
The students had a firsthand look at the laboratory’s structure and operation model and discovered the magic of a brand that has united various generations of women since 1890.
“The idea of bringing new generations into the heart of a brand that has been uniting generations of women for over 100 years is fascinating. In addition, we feel that as a laboratory, we can teach and learn a lot from these students who are focused on cosmetics and dermopharmacy,” asserts Josep Maria Ribes Martinez, CEO of Bella Aurora Labs.
After having breakfast with the Bella Aurora team, the students sat down to listen to a few words from team members.
Josep Maria Martinez Ribes took advantage of the occasion to highlight the importance of values in organisations and the relevance of innovation in a company specialised in cosmetic treatments. “Innovation and ongoing research are determining factors in placing Bella Aurora in the number one position, when it comes to depigmenting products, in pharmacies and perfume shops in Spain,” he confirmed.
Jordi Segura, Director of R+D at Bella Aurora Labs, gave an interesting talk about the changes that have affected over the last few decades the work of laboratory professionals dedicated to the research and development of cosmetics.
Formulators Anna Farré and Susanna Roca gave an in-depth explanation of all the steps in the R&D process from the conception of an idea to the creation of the final product.
Sergi Hernández, Fundamental Research Manager, gave his point of view as a “concerned young scientist” emphasising that despite his young age, he found in the labour market an opportunity to grow personally and professionally.
When bidding farewell to the students, Josep Maria Martinez Ribes concluded “that this event was much more than just a mere visit. It was an encounter between the past, the present and the future of cosmetics.”
