Improving Cosmetic Education
I am a Pharmacy graduate. I have some experience with formulating cosmetic after completing my course and also working at my home lab. I recently noticed that many graduates want to pursue a career in cosmetics after graduation, but the education system offered to us make it difficult to learn proper basics.
I want to start a startup to solve the problem. I am hoping to organize one day cosmetic workshops for students at their college itself, to get them interested in learning about cosmetics and to also provide the basics of creating a particular type of formula like cream, or lotion. I am currently experimenting and trying to create a base formula, and then teach them what they can change inorder to alter the texture and how to add extracts.
I want to make sure I am able to provide the highest quality workshops. I am looking for ways I can learn good formulation skills that I can teach, and will make it easier for students to get started. I know there are many online courses, but most students including me are unable to afford them.
I would be very thankful if someone can suggest some good resources. Also, I am open to hearing any suggestions you have about this idea of mine.
