    You have a very good lecture series on how to become a cosmetic formulator. It is a reflection of your rich experience in the cosmetic industry. Day 20 (Dissecting an Ingredient List) and Day 22 (Using Patents To Find Test Methods) would give a breakthrough in cosmetic formulation and ideas about production processes.
