Alice Ball / Chaulmoogra Seed Enamel Pin

5

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.

50% of profits from this pin go to:

This pin has two clasps to keep it in place. This pin has small parts and is not made for children!

Love this!

I try to be a conscious consumer, and I love that part of the profits go to support the ideals I believe in. It also gives my adornments purpose and meaning, which makes me more likely to wear them!

Who knew?

I have two RBG puns which I love. She is a rock star. I'd never heard of Alice Bell and her miraculous discovery. Now I know so I need to honor her too.

I love all of your pins!

These pins are a beautiful way to show your passion for women's rights and science. I bought the Alice Ball pin for a friend as a gift. She is a brilliant woman that is passionate about STEM and when I saw this pin, I knew it would be a great thinking of you moment. So as I do not have this pin myself, I know that it is valued.
