Clara Challoner Walker will share how, using her knowledge of chemistry and cell biology, she created a range of personal care products.

About this event

Clara Challoner Walker, a graduate chemist and associate of the Royal College of Science started The Cosy Cottage Soap Company in 2015. Clara will share how, using her knowledge of chemistry and cell biology, she created a range of personal care products which avoided the use of environmentally damaging ingredients alongside potentially harmful chemicals including parabens, SLS, and synthetic limonoids. She will also talk to us about how, with the help of Biovale, she established her first manufacturing operation in 2016, in premises at the University of York Science Park and how she has grown the company into a thriving business, now based in two manufacturing units in Malton, North Yorkshire and a retail store which opened in Autumn 2020.
