Here’s a pretty good video in which a high school student describes what it’s like to be a cosmetic chemist.  She got to visit Estee Lauder in Toronto.

Also, if you are curious about what a cosmetic chemist does, see this list of cosmetic chemist tasks.

      Hello – well, a masters degree in cosmetic science might help. But continuing to apply for chemists jobs (if you have a chemistry degree) could also work. If you don’t have a chemistry degree then you’ll probably need more schooling to get a formulation job.

    Hi i am finishing my BPharm degree and I’m interested in this. Is it possible for me to specialise into cosmetics and if possible how? (What course do i need to pursue further?)

      You could look into the Masters degree program at University of Cincinnati or Fairleigh Dickenson
