Not many beauty brands have their black-tie launch parties covered by Vogue. Then again, it's not every day that one integrates the work of a Nobel Laureate, either. New luxury skincare brand Noble Panacea has accomplished both feats — sitting squarely in a space almost completely its own as of its Oct. 23 debut. But before there was Noble Panacea, there was Sir Fraser Stoddart.
"Sir Fraser Stoddart won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 2016 for the design and synthesis of molecular machines. Imagine the smallest possible machine where the components are molecules and those components are able to move, relative to each other," Céline Talabaza, CEO of Noble Panacea, tells The Zoe Report in an email. "Sir Fraser has expanded our understanding of chemistry at the fundamental, molecular level — through his study of molecular machines, as well as several other important discoveries, including Organic Molecular Vessels™ which have been integrated into skin care by Noble Panacea."
"Sir Fraser continues to oversee one of the top chemistry labs in the world at Northwestern University. Although his priority is the mentorship of students and furthering scientific research, it was his dream to see one of his discoveries be implemented into a product that could impact so many," Talabaza continues.
