L’Oréal continues to be about more than just selling makeup and moisturizer. The latest move as it supports women in science is the company’s recognition of Dr. Zhenan Bao as a For Women in Science Laureate.
Bao is being honored for her work as a U.S. female scientist by the 2017 L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards. She is one of five global scientists feted this year as part of the For Women in Science program. Bao, who is working on electronic skin to help people with prosthetics regain a sense of touch, will receive a €100,000 prize for her significant contributions to science. She is a chemical engineering professor at Stanford University who created artificial skin that stretches, self-repairs and senses touch. The innovation has potential to help prosthesis users, burn victims and patients with alopecia or severe scarring.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
