Thirty-year industry veteran and award-winning chemist Yolanda (“Yoly”) Laboy has joined the Research and Development Department at Private Label Skin, Inc. as its Formulation Chemist. Laboy brings with her extensive knowledge in the formulation, manufacturing and quality control of cosmetics across various categories, including color cosmetics, fragrance, skin, sun, hair and personal care products.
Most recently as Executive Director of Research and Development for Universal Beauty Products, Inc., Laboy has made a global impact on the cosmetics industry with positions at several high-profile brands, including Mary Kay, Revlon, L’Oreal, Estée Lauder, Neutrogena and BASF.
