The fast-evolving environment of the Beauty Industry is driving personal care companies to re-evaluate and redesign their portfolio strategies to meet the demand for personalized and highly efficacious products. From private label corporations or contract manufacturing companies to revolutionary independent brands, innovative concepts, and effective business solutions must be introduced to facilitate the industry’s response to current demands. As such, it is necessary to have interdisciplinary skills that allow scientists and product developers to balance innovation, technical knowledge, creativity, and efficiency for the development of contemporary cosmetics.

This intensive, accredited training course, is designed to introduce winning strategies to develop cosmetic products that will meet the high quality and safety standards expected by today’s consumers. This course will present unique tools and strategies that can be used from the early phases of formulation and product design, all the way through testing, claims design, and scale-up stages.

During the class, participants will learn about the chemistry of cosmetics, understand how to design, and formulate cosmetic products, recognize contemporary consumer trends, learn to formulate marketing claims, and learn about testing protocols that confirm final product quality. Valuable strategies will be presented allowing participants to form skills they can use in R&D/Quality/Technical Marketing/Testing settings.
