Colin’s Problem Page


Do you have a problem that might have a scientific solution?  Colin’s Problem Page is here to help.

It doesn’t necessarily have to have anything to do with cosmetic science.  Personal care problems are my speciality but I’ll have a go at any problem I think I have something to contribute to.

Let me know and I’ll do my best to come up with a solution to your problem.   You can get in touch via the form below.  I’ll be posting top solutions on the blog.  There is a list of my best problem page answers further down.
