Learn About Making Stable Emulsions in this Online Course

Specialchem4cosmetics.com has an upcoming online course on emulsions. I’m going to do a review after I take the course but if you are interested in signing up, here is the information. It promises to be a useful course for any cosmetic chemist.

This week there is an the upcoming e-Training Course on Emulsion Stability in Practice. Register now!

Attend this online course to better understand emulsion science and how ingredients impact product stability. It will enable you to implement effective prevention measures and solve faster instability issues (flocculation, Ostwald ripening, coalescence…).
Practical case studies on silicone emulsions and double emulsions will also be presented.

Course Objective:
Help experienced formulators strengthen their ability to develop faster stable emulsions.

In the light of every day practice, the following will be discussed:
- Emulsion science in very accessible terms
- Major instability factors
- Impact of ingredients on overall stability
