Cosmetic Science Internship Programs

On a few occasions we’ve been asked here at Chemists Corner about whether we know of any internship programs in the cosmetic industry.

While many are not advertised, we searched our list of contacts and got the following leads. This is by no means all of the cosmetic science internships available but they were the ones we could find.

Cosmetic Manufacturers


Other options

To be sure, this list is not complete and there may be many unadvertised cosmetic science positions that you can get if you know the right person. The biggest companies often have the most positions available so investigate the top twenty beauty industry companies as they might have unadvertised opportunities.

Small, entrepreneurial companies also have intern positions available but they are much more difficult to find.

Finally, see this website about finding internships for some basic advice like writing resumes, writing cover letters, and how to interview.

Do you know of any cosmetic science internship opportunities that we didn’t mention? Leave a comment below.
