No idea. that's why we've invited. Dr michelle wong. Better known on the internet as lab muffin beauty science to break down a lot of the recent headlines. We've been seeing on this topic today. And michelle is a content creator and a science educator. She has a phd in chemistry and is based in sydney australia. So she started loud muffin about ten years ago. Now and i think her whole impetus for starting. It was that she was frustrated.
