A sweet #SmallBiz discovery from @westernuniversity: Chemist innovates with local spa company in London, Ontario.
For centuries, women have battled the fight against unwanted body hair. Hot waxes and lotions, razors and threads — you name it, most women have tried it. But one lesser-known method of hair removal is fast becoming a mainstream beauty regimen. Body sugaring has been used for hair removal by Middle Eastern women for centuries and is now gaining popularity in North America — the best part It’s all natural.
Created by heating a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, and water, sugar pastes are then cooled to a putty-like consistency. The mixture is non-toxic and used at room temperature without requiring any special solvents for cleaning.
Noticing the lack of consistent-quality sugaring pastes as its popularity rose, Sara Pauli, owner of @sugarcocanada wanted to use chemistry to develop a superior product for this type of hair removal — one that could be easily reproduced. Sara enlisted the support of PhD researcher Joanne Curiel Tejeda at Western University through the Mitacs Accelerate program for the task. “When it comes to homemade sugaring pastes, the current chemical knowledge is more oral tradition than science, which lacks reproducibility,” says Joanne, an organic chemist who joined the project. “The texture of an ideal sugaring paste is important — if the paste is too runny, the technique will not work.” Joanne’s research focused on looking at the molecular structure of the three main components of sugaring paste: sugar, lemon juice, and water, and determining how to manipulate these structures to get the desired results and consistency from every batch. “After a lot of trial and error, we were finally able to take our small batches and produce them at a much larger scale, while maintaining the high quality and integrity of the paste so they could be sold wholesale to spas,” says Joanne.

🇺🇸 Is chemistry the most important stage of love 🧐
During my visit to @lovevibenyc , a pop up store located on Soho that shows the stages of love. I posted this question and 100% of the people said YES. Here is a sneak peak of the room.
And you What do you think Is it the most important or not
🇧🇷 A química é o estágio mais importante do amor 🧐

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within and relating to living organisms.
In medicine, biochemists investigate the causes and cures of diseases. In nutrition, they study how to maintain health wellness and study the effects of nutritional deficiencies. In agriculture, biochemists investigate soil and fertilizers, and try to discover ways to improve crop cultivation, crop storage and pest control.
Biochemistry Degree focuses on the scientific study of the chemistry of living systems, their fundamental chemical substances and reactions, and their chemical pathways and information transfer systems, with particular reference to carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.
Jobs in Biochemistry: analytical chemist, biomedical scientist, healthcare scientist, clinical research associate, forensic scientist, research scientist, scientific laboratory technician.

To kickstart our Tutor Tuesdays Special, meet our very own Rochelle Bryson! She currently tutors Chemistry and Biology at CSEC, CAPE, IGCSE and IB levels. Rochelle is currently a third year medical student who wants to gear her focus in the field of women’s health! She’s a lover of all things sand and sea, and often picture herself relaxing on the breezy beaches of Rio de Janiero 🙂🐚🌊
“My favourite thing about tutoring is being able to make a positive impact on each student’s life - both academically and emotionally. I love to help them become the best version of themselves!” - Rochelle #GetThere #jamaicantutors #yourtutors #chemistry #biology #physics #math #languages #SAT #SSAT #ACT #IB #IGCSE #CSEC #CAPE #committedtoexcellence #committedtoyoursuccess #committedtoyou 💯💯💯
