Outstanding female Palestinian student invents skin cream from a rare plant in Lebanon


Palestinian student, Batoul Mohamad Khudr, 25, resident of Burj Chemali refugee camp in South Lebanon, earned an honorable mention in her master’s degree in pharmaceutical sciences from the Near East University in Cyprus. Speaking to Al Mustaqbal newspaper, Batoul said the title of her dissertation was, ‘The tender cream: from Krameria Triandra’, which is a plant grown in Latin America. Lucky to find the plant in Lebanon, Batoul explained, she used it to make a cream to treat certain skin diseases. The project, Batoul maintained, included applied scientific studies and articles about the plant, in addition to the cream she invented. (Al Mustaqbal, February 7, 2019)
