Luisa Fanzani Cosmetic chemist

Luisa Fanzani

Brescia – Italy

Hi there! I’m Luisa.

with clinically proven benefits

LI’m the founder of LFCLab (Luisa Fanzani Cosmetics Lab) where we create custom skincare formulations for people who want to start a cosmetic line.

I was born in a small town of Italy called Brescia

Before I moved to the U.S, I had never thought of starting a business nor known anyone who did it. Yet, here I am 😉

I had never even imagined of creating a product with a purpose and sell it to people who share your same mission.

Instead, I did everything I was “supposed” to, even though something inside me was making much sense. On my first day of work, I vividly remember thinking “Okay, so am I supposed to this everyday for the next 40/50 years”?

I still 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 work ethic was horrible, but somehow it put me on the right path. I started working as a freelancer during working hours for this company. I was creating formulations for people who wanted to start selling beauty products.

Helping people launching their first line gave me the enthusiasm I needed, and the variety of tasks I was looking for.

THE END OF THE STORY
I left the corporate world with no regrets. Today I assist my clients full time AND I sell some of my products. Having clients that succeed in the beauty industry gives me profound satisfaction, even if the products don’t bear my name. The same satisfaction that I feel when I have the chance to interact with people and vilify some skincare products that are 100% marketing and 0% efficacy.

When I am not working, I am exercising, reading, taking photos, or answering skincare questions on Quora.

“Do or do not. There’s no try.”

  • My family and my health are my priority.

“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!)
