A year of growth on Chemists Corner

2012 was a pretty good year for Chemists Corner.  We launched a new program (How to start a cosmetic line), wrote more than ever, and even started a video series.  We didn’t do as many as I would have liked but we have a good system to ensure we do better next year.

For the curious, here are the most read posts from 2012.

1.  How to become a cosmetic chemist.

2. The 20 biggest cosmetic companies in the world

3. Cosmetic science training programs around the world

4. HLB – the easiest way to create emulsions

5. Top 10 cosmetic science books

6. Could you start your own cosmetic business?

7. Where to find free cosmetic formulas

8. How to stability test a cosmetic formula

9. A cosmetic market overview for cosmetic chemists

10. What are the start-up costs for a cosmetic business?

Of course, it didn’t make the top 10 but my favorite post to write this year was a piece reflecting on how I became a cosmetic chemist.  You can read the Perry Romanowski cosmetic chemist story here.


And there has been a great amount of activity in the cosmetic science forum.  Be sure to check it out!
