In Memorium

Ralph Akyuz
Founder - Rafaello Research Labs

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ralph Akyuz on April 6, 2018 .Ma ny of us were touched and blessed by knowing Ralph. A brilliant chemist, he was the creative force behind countless successful products, and worked behind the scenes tobuild many leading brands in the industry. After distinguishing himself at companies such as Clairol, Revlon, Avon, and Jhirmack, Ralph went on to found Raffaello Research Labs in 1983. He was a remarkable and inspiring man who left his mark in so many ways, and he will be deeply missed by his loving family and those people in our industry who were fortunate enough to know him.

Ralph Akyuz was to receive The Legend of the Year award at BIW's May meeting.  His family will accept the award on his behalf.
