  •  Anybody know, which course give a professional diploma of personal care formulation.? Which gives a real qualification, and not only an  online course and does not accept any company neither that paper. ( I found an online course (not SCS) . This course give a diploma of personal care formulation. These courses are recognised, 1 year long ,  but i don't know this diploma is a really national professional training which accept any personal care company or just an online expensive course?)

    I'm not sure where you live, but in the UK most development chemists have science degrees and then take the SCS exams.  So, the SCS Dip. is a recognised qualification by employers.

    There really is no officially recognized national professional training in the cosmetic industry. Really, if you have a college degree in chemistry you can get a job in the cosmetic industry.

    But here is a list of all the programs around the world that I could find. https://chemistscorner.com/cosmetic-science-programs-around-the-world/

    Certainly if you get a Masters degree from a university then that will look better on a resume than any of the online courses you can take. That doesn't mean you'll learn more and in fact, the online courses are probably better if you are looking for practical information.
  • Thank you for your help!
    Maybe I can write you pm Perry and Jane?
