Paolo Camattari – Biography

Research, Development and Innovation Manager – Lynoslife

After obtaining a bachelor degree in Chemistry at the “Universita degli Studi” (Milano, Italy), Paolo’s career in cosmetics started by working as formulation chemist in a lab at an Italian ingredient distributor, who was also acting as subcontractor for skincare, hair and personal care for private brands. After gaining knowledge in skincare formulations, Paolo continued his career in the hair bleaching department of another Italian contract manufacturer, adding expertise in hair products for professionals, and in specific, from a technical perspective, in making powder products from formulation design to the manufacturing scale.
Paolo’s cosmetic formation was completed when he joined Oriflame in 2007 as Raw Material Investigation chemist in the colour team, allowing him to increase his knowledge in pigmented emulsions, hot-pour and mascaras. Paolo’s career progression continued by moving into the skincare team, first in the technology department, then into New Product Development.

In November 2019 Paolo joined Cosmetic Creations in Cork (now Lynoslife) in his current role of RDI Manager, managing a team of 3 formulators and 1 regulatory officer. The role is central in the interactions between departments, and key in the whole journey of product development, from concept to industrialisation.

Shannon ABC has worked with SMEs based in the cosmetics sector for 10 years, assisting them with product development, ingredient selection and screening, access to funding and strategic development. As a Technology Gateway, we are aware of the cosmetics ecosystem and challenges that cosmetics companies face, in particular small companies who base their products on natural extracts. We will use our cosmetic sector expertise alongside our track record of working with companies, to identify and address the industrial needs of rurally based cosmetic companies in both Ireland and Finland. 

It can be challenging for small companies to have expertise at all stages of the cosmetic development process; therefore the delivery of the NACO project by Shannon ABC will help SMEs to navigate and access the support that they require at all stages of the process.

The NACO project will offer cosmetics companies the opportunity to take part in networking events, training programs and innovation support activities. Events will focus on areas such as research and development, funding opportunities, formulation and regulation. Companies will also be offered the opportunity to access facilities and expertise in the University of Oulu, in addition to the available expertise in Shannon ABC in MTU Kerry, which includes cell culture and efficacy testing.
