Course Overview

With the increasingly competitive nature of the cosmetics industry, there is an urgent need to create truly differentiated products, and formulators are being asked to do so with ever more novel, sustainable/greener ingredients.

This two day course (mixing classroom instruction with hands-on lab work), will instruct participants on the principles and practices of high throughput (automated) formulation, along with advanced prototype testing (stability, particle sizing, rheology, tribology, surface tension, etc.). The aim is to give the cosmetic formulator a competitive advantage in creating high quality, unique products (both functionally and sensorially), while also maintaining awareness as to sustainability.
