New Hands-On Color Cosmetics Trouble Shooting Course

SCC has planned a new hands-on lab experience course—“Trouble Shooting Color Cosmetics”—Aug. 16-17 at the Glenpointe Marriott in Teaneck, NJ. This course, which will be led by Nick Morante, is aimed at technicians, formulators, compounders, process engineers and even marketing people who want a better understanding of what can go wrong with a product and what to do when problems arise in the lab or in production.

This course will teach the basics of troubleshooting and problem solving in the color cosmetics category. It will review processes and principles and look at the obvious causes of some of the issues that come up with color cosmetic products and offer simple solutions to fix these problems. It will provide the basic tools necessary to spot and eliminate formulation problems, according to the SCC.

Morante has more than 35 years of experience in the formulation of decorative and color cosmetics and other makeup and emulsion-type products—all of it at the Estée Lauder Companies where he held various technical and managerial positions in R&D.
