Hi there! I'm Luisa.
I'm a cosmetic chemist L.A based.
I was born in Brescia, Italy.
My life had been pretty ordinary; I did everything I was "supposed" to do. I graduated from college and was pursuing my PhD in medicinal chemistry while working as a pharmacist.
When I was 28, I left everything I knew and moved to the U.S. With my degree, I found a job in a cosmetic company as a chemist.
I quickly gained new skills and business insights. In a few months, I ended up supervising the bulk production and finally became head chemist for the same company.
I was unsatisfied, though.
Meaningless meetings and working "emergencies" were depleting my energies and motivation. My days looked all the same. I hated not to have a flexible schedule, and not being able to do things MY WAY.
My personality pushed me to challenge myself once again. I started working as a freelancer in my spare time. Helping people launching their first line gave me the enthusiasm I needed and the variety of tasks I was looking for. Their success was mine, too!
THE END OF THE STORY
I left the corporate world with no regrets and today I assist my clients full time. When I am not working, I am learning something new or working out.
My core values
"Do or do not. There's no try."
My family and my health are my priority.
I do my best to preserve this Earth.
I believe in simplicity and I am a minimalist.
I love my job, but I also enjoy other 10,000 things. I am not a workaholic!
Launch a NEW Line
I will assist you in creating and launching your first cosmetic line. I have successfully formulated different cosmetic products ranging from make-up (liquid lipsticks/lip balms) to skincare (body scrubs, lotions, serums, detergents, masks). I am completely comfortable working with both natural or synthetic ingredients.
Discover my detailed step-by-step process.
GMP, FDA regulations, EU regulations,stability tests, labels and everything in between.
Before you start selling your products, I highly recommend to consult with an expert about different regulations you might not be aware of.
You don't want to receive a warning letter from the FDA!
If you already have a formula but it doesn't perform or it's not stable, we can review it together.
If you're looking for a particular ingredient or trying to change an ingredient, I can help you finding the right solutions.
Ready to export your business to other countries? Let me take care of the paperwork so you can focus on the important stuff.
Exporting cosmetics requires some mandatory documents you cannot possibly prepare all by yourself.
What are people saying about me?
Luisa is awesome she can really can make your vision come true! I will be going through Luisa again for other cosmetics as well. Thank you for making Her Majesty a reality!
I worked with Luisa on a custom formula and was very impressed with her work. Not only did my cream come out flawless; Luisa was incredibly professional. She took my direction and vision, made recommends and created exactly what I was looking for. I could not say enough good things about her. I will definitely be working with her again.
Luisa was extremely professional and paid attention to detail when it came to developing our formula. She was able to create a formula for us that fit our criteria... and... she was able to troubleshoot any problems we encountered along the way. She will help you get a winning formula and goes the extra mile to get it done (Extremely quickly, too!)
