Chemists Corner is dedicated to teaching you about the field of cosmetic science and how to become a cosmetic chemist. We’ve enjoyed writing blogs, discussing topics with you through the comments and doing the podcast.
Advanced Cosmetic Science Training
One of the most common questions we’re asked is whether there is some training program that people can take to help them become cosmetic scientists. For people who are looking for an advanced degree in cosmetic science, we’ve encouraged them to look into university sponsored programs like the University of Cincinnati or the Fairleigh Dickinson Program. These are excellent programs and if you can afford the time & money to attend, you should do it.
And if you are looking for additional training in specific areas of cosmetic science, you should certainly participate in some the many fine SCC continuing education programs.
Online Cosmetic Science
However, these programs are not suitable for everyone as they involve travel, years of commitment and a significant amount of money. They also cover much more material than is practically required to get started as a cosmetic chemist.
For people in this situation, we’ve created a training program called the Complete Cosmetic Chemist. It is an online course that goes over the fundamentals of cosmetic formulation. It is beginning soon and if you are interested, take a look at the course syllabus and sign up.
This promises to be a great program and we look forward to working with you.
