Chemists & Scientists work together to bring to the world what people require for household or office purposes. Consumer scientists manufacture & develop a product and test it in laboratories with specialized equivalents. People, business & organizations require cleaning, personal hygiene products that are necessary and which we are very dependent on. These include soaps, detergents, and cleaners, as well as toiletries and cosmetics. While consumer chemistry are an established segment of the industry, technological innovation and product development are important due to short product life cycles. Consumer Chemicals represented 13.6% of total EU chemical sales.
