NutraWomen Wednesday: Karin Hermoni, PhD, Global Head of Science and Product at Lycored
The Global Head of Science and Product at Lycored credits her enthusiasm for skin health and molecular nutrition journey to two very important mentors who altered the trajectory of her life.
“Professor Joseph Levi and Professor Yoav Sharoni introduced me to this colorful world of phytonutrients and it was through their eyes and through the interaction with them that I actually fell in love with the topic of molecular nutrition. They taught me not only about the science of nutrition, but even more so they were inspiration for life and they taught me about friendship. They were best friends working together for many years and they were the true model for synergy, a living model for synergy and so it was only natural that they also taught me about synergy on the molecular level between nutrients.”
Hermoni said while some seek work-life balance, she enjoys work-life synergy. “I get to bring that know-how every day with me to dinner and know that I'm doing something good for my health, for the health of my family, my kids, my friends and I just love that.”
For Hermoni, beauty goes beyond what can be seen with the naked eye. She said she enjoys volunteering for the Global Wellness Institute, an initiative where beauty meets wellness.
“But at the end of the day, it's not only about big initiatives, it's about everyday life. It's about being kind and compassionate in small acts of kindness, in smiling to someone that needs it and just helping ourselves and the people around us.”
