It’s Nobel Prize Week, and while there’s no official category for beauty, if there were, our nomination would go to 3Lab co-founder Erica Chung.

Chung has rooted her skincare business in the integrity of science. Each powerful anti-aging ingredient found in her popular products has an impressive (and usually patented) pedigree. Take for example, X-50, the complex at the core of the news-making moisturizer, Super Cream; it was developed using apple stem cell technology. Impressed? So are we.

Chung is a believer in research, and the beauty world has in turn become a believer in Chung.

We visited 3Lab headquarters to speak to the woman behind this game-changing collection.

Intrigued? Erica Chung will be at our Madison Avenue flagship on October 11 from 3 to 6pm. Drop by!
