BBC’s Dr Zoe Laughlin describes BioMin as the ‘Magic Ingredient’.
Dr Zoe Laughlin, co-founder and director of the Institute of Making at University College London, is an artist, designer, maker and materials engineer. An infectiously enthusiastic presenter, she has made a variety of TV programmes about materials and describes her role as ‘explaining the art, craft, science and engineering of STUFF.’
As part of her investigation into what ingredients should be included in an ideal toothpaste, Zoe visited Professor Robert Hill in his labs to learn about the groundbreaking technology behind BioMin. Although BioMin could not be mentioned by name on the programme, Zoe said that there was only one brand which used the bioglass technology, and she was extremely excited by its innovation and its potential.
