Developing Skin Care Products

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,
• Research and Development
• Technical Sales
• Formulations Development
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
