The power of R & D in Taiwan once again becomes an international focus! Professor §d¯\Þ± Wu Pei-Hsuan, Assistant Professor of Cosmetics Science at Providence University, won three medals in the International Invention Exhibition in South Korea. She invented the "Miraculous Tearing Eyeliner" which won the gold medal for the People's Livelihood Class among 296 inventions in 25 countries in the “2016 South Korea Seoul International Invention Award.” Her other innovation products won the silver, bronze and other awards. She won three medals in this International Invention competition making many Korean cosmetics companies fight for the products’ copywright.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs recognizes ‘South Korea Seoul International Invention Award Exhibition’ as the world's top ten invention awards. It has a total of 10 categories including mechanical, electronics, design, people's livelihood and other categories of supplies. In addition to the gold medal in the ‘Miraculous Tearing Eyeliner’, she also won the silver medal in ‘Anti-Fog Haze Sunscreen’ and won the bronze medal for her ‘Miracle Moisturizer’.
Realizing that women have difficulty removing makeup when they have lashes extension, Prof. Wu thought about developing this product. After trying 80 kinds of ingredients, at last, she invented tear-able eyeliner which is water-soluble, non-irritating, and easy to set formula. While attending exhibition in Seoul, there are more than five Korean cosmetics companies trying to be authorized agents. Eventually, Prof. Wu decided to transfer the products’ technology and authorization to local Taiwan cosmetics company, Professors (ªiµá¸Ö¬ü§©), and will soon be available for sale.
Professor Wu points out that the market value of cosmetics products creates tens of billions of dollars every year. And 10% of the cosmetic market are eye makeup products. She also hopes that these products can once again help the economy in Taiwan.
What a great feat, Prof. Wu! You brought such a great pride to all of us in PU. A million congratulations to you!!!
