About LAURA

freelance CHEMIST

freelance cosmetic formulation chemist

Dr Laura McArdle is a professional natural product chemist based in the United Kingdom. Specialising in the fermentation and isolation of novel natural compounds from biological sources.

She was first exposed to the fermentation and isolation of natural products in 2008 as a postgraduate at The University of Manchester. One aspect of natural products research she appreciates the most, is the diverse nature of the projects encountered.

Through this field of organic chemistry, she further explored her passion for natural products by studying botany and marine natural chemistry.

She is now on a mission to help people live a more sustainable life. She grows and distils various plant sources to create hydrosols and loves using natural ingredient extracts in products.

Natural product research is a creative outlet for Laura and she loves formulating new and unique formulas.

Through her business The Formulator® she collaborates with a wide range of specialised ‘green’ formulators and farmers to support small artisan companies to large scale manufacturing for retail on the global market. 

She is passionate about natural products and provides everything you need to take your product idea and turn it into a reality. 

Her aim is simple: cut through the clutter and provide access to the tools and expertise entrepreneurs, leaders, researchers and academic institutions need to develop eco-friendly products. 

With Laura's extensive connections and familiarity with detailed laboratory and manufacturer profiles, contact data and more, she can help point you in the right direction.

Laura is also a keen investor in life science biotech companies, founded on strong sustainable science with the potential to improve the lives of people. Focusing on growing a positive impact on health, science, society and the environment.

A member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Society of Cosmetic Scientists and the Society of Cosmetic Chemists.
