For chemists and other scientists coming out of college, one area in which you will likely be deficient in knowledge is skin biology. But if you are working on any skin care formulations, it is critical that you understand how the skin works, how compounds will affect skin, and how the skin ages.
This is why we worked with Cosmetics and Toiletries and Dr Zoe Draelos to develop a course that teaches you everything you need to know about the skin.
Skin Physiology course
Zoe Diana Draelos, MD is a board certified dermatologist with than 25 years experience. In this course she presents an exclusive look at how cosmetic scientists, when armed with the medical knowledge of how and why the skin functions and what really makes it beautiful, can also apply their cosmetic science knowledge to proper product development in order to make the best and safest products possible.
The course is presented in 8 lessons including:
- Lesson 1: Skin Biology and Evaluation
- Lesson 2: Skin Aging
- Lesson 3: Acne
- Lesson 4: Skin Disease and Skin Cancer
- Lesson 5: Skin Care
- Lesson 6: Cosmeceutical Ingredients
- Lesson 7: Cosmetic Dermatology Procedures
- Lesson 8: Skin Physiology and Topical Skin Lightening
