A passionate Cosmetic Scientist, Fran is one of the Formulators at Neal’s Yard Remedies, working in the Research & Development laboratory in Dorset. She is responsible for developing new products from shampoos to foot creams, and researching new raw materials, combining the best that nature has to offer with the latest technologies to create effective products with the least environmental impact possible.
Her particular interests lie in working with essential oils, creating natural fragrances and enjoying the challenge and limitations that using only essential oils can bring. Working closely with fragrances that have therapeutic benefits inspired Fran to extend her interest into further education, Fran completed the Neal’s Yard Remedies, Aromatherapy & Essential Oil Science Diploma course and is now a practicing Aromatherapist in her spare time, giving her relationship with essential oils an extra dimension.
