    Melaleuca, a $1.75B CPG company, is seeking a highly-motivated, creative Senior Scientist to lead innovation in Skin-Care and provide technical support for the line. The position requires strong formulation skills in skin-care technology, including emulsions, gels, and cleansers as well as familiarity with the polymers, surfactants, emollients, active ingredients, and other raw materials used in the cosmetic industry. An understanding of skin physiology and product assessment techniques is desirable. In addition, responsibilities extend to managing external relationships with vendor partners as well as identifying and implementing new technologies and product improvement opportunities from outside sources.


    Minimum BS degree in chemistry, biochemistry, or related scientific field. An advanced technical degree is desirable.

    5 – 10 years of previous industrial experience in formulation development of skin-care leave-on and rinse-off products. Laboratory skills in conducting stability studies and product assessment are essential. Supervisory experience is desirable.

    Experience in scale-up from laboratory to manufacturing.

    A track record of driving innovation; New product introductions, Novel product claims, Patents, or Publications.

    Strong team player with excellent communication skills, flexibility, and the ability to multitask.

    Just as important as your experience and skills will be the following characteristics and competencies:

    A natural orientation for continuous improvement and problem solving.

    A collaborative approach and willingness to engage in an environment of active idea sharing.

    Strong organizational skills and the ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment.

    The ability to produce consistent quality under deadline pressure while paying careful attention to detail.
