    Hi, Perry.
    I’m a cosmetics manufacturer from Latvia and I’m interested in your natural cosmetics formulation course to expand my product list, but I’m a bit concerned, if the ingredients used in formulations and examples will suit for me. I mean – if they will be the usual ones, that are widely used and available in Europe or if they will be just from one or two suppliers and available just in USA. Also, do you provide consultations afterwards about the formulas already made by me?
    Thank you!

      You will be able to get chemicals in the EU that qualify as natural. These would be COSMOS certified. Yes, for people in the course I answer formulation questions & give advice.

    Does the course include natural formulations and organic formulations? Will it be useful, if I want to focus on organic formulations only?. Thanks.

        where can you take a standard formulation course? I have my degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I just completed a cosmetology 1000 hour certification and I want to transition from vaccine research to Cosmetic Formulation

    Hi Perry. Can i study the practical cosmetic formulating even if i want to formulate only natural products in the future?

      Yes. I think once you learn more about formulating your views on what “natural products” means will change.

      Hello Diana,

      It sounds like you would be best served by working with a contract manufacturer or a cosmetic formulation consultant. I’d suggest you see our forum for a consultant who specializes in natural formulations.

    The video is very informative and easy to understand. I am a fresh undergraduate in Biotechnology. I am interested to work in an industry that is producing skin care, hair care, etc. products. Is the course recognized and appreciated to pen it down on the resume to enter into an industry? Thank You.

    I am interested in formulating natural/organic body care lotions just for myself.
    Do you offer any sessions that are not as detailed as your 3 videos?

    By the way, I enjoyed watching your presentations even though you talked a little too fast for me to absorb all of the information.

    Hello Perry,
    I am a pharmacist interested in making cosmetics as natural as possible without sensitizers/irritants.
    Both practical cosmetic formulation and formulating natural cosmetics program you offer sounds good… BUT I would like to start with one program at a time.
    Which one would you recommend for someone with science background who is just starting to explore cosmetic formulation? Will I be able to start either courses immediately?
    Thank you 🙂

      I would recommend you start with the Practical Cosmetic Formulating course. https://chemistscorner.com/members This gives you a better background of all formulating than the Natural course. Yes you can start immediately.

    Hello,
    We have already formulated and manufactured excellent 100% natural skin care products. We just need to have help marketing these products. They also contain many organic ingredients. They have been laboratory tested for stability and sensitivity. Could you please advise how we may get our products marketed right away. We are a very small company and have limited funds, but our products are very competitive in quality with any well-known company.

    Are you able personally to help us get in touch with consumers who would appreciate these products, and/or do you know anyone who could help us? Thank you for any help you can give us.

      Hello Gloria,

      You’ve stumbled on the greatest challenge of any beauty brand…marketing. Anyone can make good products. Selling them is a lot harder. You could look to Elance.com and see if there are any freelance marketers who would help you. I can’t personally help at the moment as I’m not currently in this line of work.

    Good Morning Perry,
    I missed signing up for your Natural Formulating Course by one day. Is it too late to sign up & is the discounted price still available? I am extremely interested in this course. I have actually started formulating bases for Ethnic Hair & wanted to learn about more natural alternatives that can be used in these bases.

      You can still sign up for the course through the end of the month but the price has increased. At the end of the month we will be closing down the course to new registrations.

    I love that you compare different brands for different degrees of “natural”. What about Lush?

      Perry Romanowski

      Thanks! Lush uses many of the same standard ingredients as the big cosmetic corporations. They go for a “home made” / natural story but they are mostly greenwashing.

    Hi Perry, if I was to sign up for the ‘Practical Cosmetic Formulating course’ so that I can better prepare myself as you suggested in the video – not sure if I have enough time to do this before 17th Feb… What do you recommend, do the course concurrently? Any discount if one was to sign up for PCF course plus this natural edition at the same time? Many thanks!

      Perry Romanowski

      Hello Tomoka – I would recommend doing the PCF course first. You can sign up for it and I will hold open a spot in the natural’s course for all PCF students.

    Hi Perry,
    I am in the process of formulating natural cosmetics, so your course would be perfect, but I was wondering if I have questions a while after the completion of the course (when I will be formulating for real and finishing my products 🙂 ), will you still answer them?
    And how long will this course last?
    Thanks!

      Perry Romanowski

      Hello Ivo – Yes, I’ll continue to answer your questions. You can just email me. The course will be 6 modules taken over the course of 12 weeks. But you’ll have access to the information for as long as you need it. And you can continue to ask me questions you might have.

      There will be a list of resources related to the course but there is nothing more required for finishing the course. It really depends on what formulas you want to make and what kind of testing you want to do.

    Really glad to see this type of course being offered by an experience cosmetic chemist. I believe there is a huge untapped market of people that would like to learn to make and sell natural products. I am a bit busy right now preparing for a new business launch, but would like to take this course at some point in the future.

      Thanks for the kind words William. If you’re intending to take the course later, you could still sign up now and get the savings. You can complete the course whenever you like as your login never expires.

    Hi Perry,
    Just pre- registered for the course. My goal is to launch natural product line in next two years . I have stumbled upon few road blocks like the viscosity of the shampoo using natural ingredients so this course will be perfect for me. I am going to follow through this course very closely. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

      Perry Romanowski

      Hello Vibha – Welcome to the class! We will certainly cover information about shampoo viscosity. If there is any questions that you still have after going through a lesson I’ll also be available to answer those.

    Hi Perry,

    I just pre-registered for the course and quite excited to get started, learn as much every inch of the way. Though I didn’t take the 1st formulating course, I am sure I’ll get my way around with a good teacher and coach.
    I just hope I’d find the materials and chemicals that’s gonna be covered in the course as I live in the Philippines. There are a few suppliers here and there but some chemicals need sourcing out.
    Looking forward!
