My name is Ryan from U.S.A. I’ve been creating my own formulas since 2012. I started with cold process soap, then moved to lotions, shave soaps, pre-shaves, then aftershaves. I was directed to this forum while watching Perry’s videos. My formulating started by reading and learning all about the ingredients. My interests continue, so I can look forward to formulating different types of products.
My name is Vera. I am working for pharmaceutical company in position Coordinator. My task is to find producer of reference standard of
cocamidopropyl-dimethylamine for the determination of cocamidopropyl-betaine by
thin layer chromatography.In the absence of a "reference standard" quality, the normal
raw material cocamidopropyl-dimethylamine will be sufficient.
Could you please help us in this matter or refer us to another source? I am clueless.
Thank you very much, I appreciate your time.
I'm Kate, and I'm a cosmetic chemist based in the UK working for a chemical manufacturer/supplier. I graduated from a degree in Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Science in summer 2018, and have a total of 2.5 years of formulation behind me (one year was halfway through my degree). The two jobs I have worked in have focused on cosmetic aerosols and silicones, so those are my two main areas of knowledge.
I chose this industry because as a girly teenager I loved nail art and makeup. I am fairly creative but easily put off when something doesn't go the way I want it to, so art you can easily wipe away is ideal. I was also fairly good at chemistry, so combined the two. And what a great choice that was!
I'm not sure exactly what I'm trying to accomplish! At this early stage, I'm just happy to be having a play around creating in the lab. We are a fairly niche industry so I'm looking forward to learning and helping others through their formulation problems where I can. Here's to creativity!
