Course Description

This 3-day intensive course will enable the participant to get a look into the design of cosmetic products for both skin and hair. This course will review the methodologies used to develop the major types of cosmetic and toiletries products. Idea generation, formulation development, manufacturing considerations and stability testing will be discussed for each product type. The basis in the development of stable emulsions will also be discussed.

Among the product types to be reviewed will be: creams, lotions, hair products (including shampoos, conditioners, waving products and grooming products), makeup products, shaving products, soaps and related washing products. Particular attention will be given to critical problem areas which can affect the development process as well as the effects of specific ingredients on product performance, stability and product scale-up. Further, there will be discussions on formulation optimization and meeting the challenges of ever-changing consumer tastes.

“The course exceeded expectation. I came with general and working knowledge of emulsions and processing, but this added a lot of information I would have come across and had to troubleshoot. I am better prepared to assist colleagues and customers with their formulation/processing woes. I would recommend this courses, [it is a] great supplement to what I already knew and opened my view for how to formulate and fix our current formulas that are troubling in production. “ M.S., Process Engineer, KDC ONE / KOLMAR

“This is the first time I took a course as a virtual attendee and It was a very nice experience. The information was very clear and interesting. Thank you!”
