Developing Skin Care Products
September 22-24, 2014
Princeton, NJ

Who Should Attend
The course is designed for individuals who are engaged in the personal care, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It is intended for individuals who work in the development of raw materials, delivery systems and finished formulations, including:

  • Research and Development
  • Technical Sales
  • Formulations Development
  • Marketing

The design of topically applied formulation combines scientific knowledge in physical- chemistry and biochemistry.

Throughout the design, one must become familiar with the fundamentals of skin physiology, structure, renewal, aging process, UV response and the like, and with the possible delivery approaches, to identify those physiological steps, which are accessible to topically applied substances. Becoming familiar with these subjects will allow one to envision the possible interactions between a topically applied formulation and the skin as a viable organ. This can allow for optimization of development.

This course will provide participants with elements leading to the understanding that topical applications can measurably, visibly and quickly affect the skin. To achieve this result a formula has to be “built” around the active to be delivered, by avoiding those ingredients, which might interfere with the proper delivery.
