Mark Chandler has founded ACT Solutions Corp (Adaptive Cosmetic Technology Solutions), a consultancy focusing on speeding development of cosmetic products with the goal of enhanced aesthetic appeal and efficacy.

The hope for Adaptive Cosmetic Technology Solutions is to carry on the legacy of the late Dr. Johann Wiechers,, a longtime friend and colleague with whom I shared a common zeal for science, the cosmetic industry, creative approaches to problems, and Christian faith.
