Alice Ball / Chaulmoogra Seed Enamel Pin

Alice Ball, pioneering chemist and developer of the first effective treatment for leprosy, is celebrated in our new hard enamel pin, the first in our Women in Science series.

Alice Ball developed a method for isolating the beneficial compounds from the oil of the chaulmoogra seed (pictured in this pin), creating an extract that became the preferred method for treating leprosy.

This pin comes with a fold-out card with Alice's story.

Alice Ball pin

I am a chemist, but had not heard of Alice Ball until a friend sent me info on the pin. The pin is an excellent starter for a conversation on encouraging young women to consider STEM fields.

Beautiful tribute to an important African-American woman in science

I bought this pin mainly .to help spread the word about the history of women in science. Alice Ball's story is especially worth highlighting. It's a beautiful pin and I plan to give it to a young woman of color who is interested in health care for the elderly.
