Upcoming Continuing Education Opportunities

If you are looking for some live courses in cosmetic science, the National SCC is sponsoring a number of them coming up this year. In fact, yours truly will be teaching 4 courses this year. Here is the information about some of the upcoming courses.

  • Basic Hair Science
    May 18, 2017 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) at the National Office

Instructed by Dr. Roger McMullen – Principal Scientist at Ashland Specialty Ingredients
This course will be beneficial to anyone interested in learning more about hair science and hair care technology and how they relate to problems facing cosmetic scientists. After attending this course, attendees will be able to better understand the fine structure of hair and how it relates to its mechanical and surface properties. In addition, the basics of hair will be explored allowing for attendees to create better formulations.

  • Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Product Development
    September 20, 2017 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) at the National Office

Instructed by Perry Romanowski – Vice President of Brains Publishing
Covering the basic process of generating ideas for new cosmetics, developing them into functional products and scaling them up to be sold commercially; this class would be useful for cosmetic formulators, quality control scientists, regulatory scientists, marketing and product development professionals and others who are interested in the process of taking an idea from a brainstorm session to a store shelf. This class will cover Technology Transfer and Market & Consumer Research. Attendees will learn how to start formulas, create prototypes and understand the process for engineering and scale up, production batching and Regulatory issues.

1st Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence Conference
June 18-20, 2017 at the Stresa Convention Centre in Stresa, Italy

A new conference launched in partnership by the SCC and the Italian Society of Chemistry and Cosmetological Sciences (SICC), with the endorsement of the Japanese Society, will come together on the beautiful Lake Maggiore (Italy) at the Stresa Convention Center to open a wide window on the Cosmetic Science & Technology World for the first ever Intercontinental Personal Care Excellence Conference! Invited scientists will showcase their cutting-edge research on three main personal care disciplines: Makeup, Skin Care and Sun Care. 

Two main courses will be at the center of this event, with the aim of training attendees on emerging scientific disciplines of interest to Cosmetologists.

  • Molecular Biology and Gene Expression for the Cosmetic Chemists
    Instructed by Howard. Epstein Ph.D.
    This course is designed for the cosmetic chemist to help them understand the very basic principles  behind molecular biology, specifically selected biological markers, gene expression and relevance to cosmetic science. 
  • Skin Lipids: Essential Role of Lipids on Skin Health
    Instructed by previous Henry Maso Keynote Award Lecturer for the 2015 Annual Meeting, Apostolos Pappas, Ph.D.
    The workshop will summarize and review the studies, ideas, and research that link lipid metabolism to the largest organ of our body, the skin.  From the fundamental biology of the skin to the major involvement of lipid synthesis and the bioactive lipids in this intriguing organ. All layers of skin will be discussed as well as their relevant lipids from the epidermis to dermis and even to the hypodermis. 

    The use of lipids in the cosmetic industry will be emphasized, and last but not least the involvement of lipids in the clinical setting will also be discussed. 

Increase your knowledge on three main personal care disciplines of most interest to Cosmetic Chemists: Makeup, Skin Care and Sun Care. SCC Members can register at a special discounted rate! >>>>> REGISTER HERE

Cosmetic Science Programs Around the World

A list of cosmetic science schools and other programs that teach you how to create your own cosmetic formulas and beauty products. If you are truly interested in making products like it is done in the cosmetic industry or in getting a job as a cosmetic chemist, the following courses are legitimate programs recognized by people and companies in the cosmetic industry.

How to Become a Cosmetic Chemist

The job of a cosmetic chemist, or as they call it in the UK a cosmetic scientist, requires you to do a wide variety of things both in and out of the lab. Your main responsibility will be that of a formulator. This means you mix raw materials together to create cosmetic products like lipstick, nail polish, skin lotions, shampoos, toothpaste and any other type of personal care product.
