    I left a message here about the content of the training course and waited for answer. It suddenly disappeared. Did I do something wrong?

      No, you didn’t do anything wrong. All comments have to be manually approved. I just didn’t get around to reading it until just now. Thanks for the comments!

    I am more interested in the nail polish formulation. I want to custom blended nail polish color one bottle at a time. We have the equipment. I need magenta, cyan, yellow and black color only. These 4 colors’ value have to be exact and be consistent. Would your training course show us where to find the ingredients suppliers or finished product for the nail polish? Do you have the formula to mix the colorant and the base?

      Our training course is more focused on the overall job of being a cosmetic chemist. So we don’t specifically dive deep into formulating nail polish. We do have a section on it but it is a small part of the overall course.

        Where can I find nail polish supplier in US. All I need is magenta, yellow, cyan and black. I’ll take red, green, blue and white if the first choice is not available. I try to skip the mixing process.

    I am very much interested in knowing how to formulate my own products, but at this time will not be able to move in this direction. I am very interested in finding a person or persons who can help up market out products. They are 100% natural with both natural and organic ingredients. If you know of such a person who does excellent work or is very knowledgeable in this area, please let me know.

    How talk to a biochemist about making a formula foundation?

      Perry Romanowski

      Biochemists typically don’t do formulations. you need to speak with a cosmetic chemist about that.

      Hello Opal – The course begins when you sign up. After you register you will get an email telling you how to access the first module. Then you will get a new module every 2 weeks until you’ve gotten all 9 modules. You can study at your own pace.

    Loved the video. I wish i could do the course but I can’t afford it right now.

    I intend to start my own product line some day when I have a good understanding of how to go about it.

    Thanks for the information.

    You also need to know which class your product is aimed at, and who the class leader are and why. So that you can formulate at least with this class leader so that you can at least give your best shot!!

    Hello Perry, thanks again for a very interesting film. This comes at a very good moment when I have been making a few products with advise of a more skilled formulator, but indeed I have been looking for a good book that helps me to understand better the basics of formulating. In my search for this kind of formulating, I have already been spending too much monney on trash information. I will definitely order your basic book. In your film I recognise a lot: I am a scientist and struggling on finding my way in the cosmetics world. Kind regards! Marleen
