Blackberry and oats are being put to good use in skin care applications at Johnson & Johnson Consumer Health; the former, for anti-aging and the latter, to alleviate discomfort associated with cancer treatments.
Simarna Kaur, Ph.D., platform leader and R&D fellow for translational science at J&J, explained, in this Cosmetics R&D Vlog entry. Kaur was recently honored by the company with a medal for “uncovering the power of naturals to holistically elevate skin health.”
