Leicester Chemist Launches Natural Cosmetics Company

Chemistry Research Associate, Dr Alvaro Garcia Cruz, alongside Immunology PhD student, Katrin Scionti, has recently co-founded a skincare company with the support of the Leicester Innovation Hub.

Alvaro and Katrin have used the lock-down period as an opportunity to realise their dream of establishing a natural cosmetic company, Gamanity Cosmetics. The past few months have seen the pair register the company and have their products certified, while also building an international following on social media. Gamanity Cosmetics products are environmentally friendly as they are made from organic and natural ingredients, and the packaging is fully recyclable and plastic-free. Some of the company’s best-selling products are their Natural Deodorant and Lip Balm.

The company has also begun the process of establishing a worldwide Gamanity community with the aim of keeping people informed about healthy and safe skincare products and practice, as well as providing a platform to exchange ideas and promote important issues. Gamanity is dedicated to actively supporting women’s empowerment. The company plan to organise monthly webinars featuring talks by inspirational women and have future plans to support charities dedicated to women’s employment.
Alvaro and Katrin are very proud of the progress they have made and are excited to develop their company further. They would like to say a huge thank you to their mentors at the Leicester Innovation Hub for their help and support.
