      Thanks so much for the information!

    Great work Perry. I listen to your podcast daily, very informative. I have a question regarding this podcast, I want to further educate myself however I am interested in earning certification. Could you recommend any certification programs in terms of formulations or management in personal care industry? Do they help in advancing knowledge and career? Do personal care industry care about certifications?


    1. Perry Romanowski

      Hello Sumit – As far as certification programs go there really aren’t any “official” certification programs in cosmetic formulating. The university programs I talked about in the show are accredited but it’s not a certification. The course we teach provides you with a certificate of completion but that only holds weight with people who are familiar with the course or me (which is a large segment of the cosmetic industry). Other programs have “certificates” or “diplomas” but they don’t really mean much beyond being proof that you took a course. Certification is just not an important thing for cosmetic formulators.
