Cosmetic Rheology Course Is Aug. 1 in Newark, NJ
• The SCC has scheduled a continuing education course on cosmetic rheology. This one-day class will be held Aug. 1 at the Doubletree Newark Airport Hotel, Newark, NJ.

The objective of this course is to help provide a practical understanding of the principles behind cosmetic flow, how it is measured and why it has become an integral part of cosmetic formulating. It will also go into detail examining rheological additives and the profiles of commercially successful products.

The instructor is Dennis Laba, director of regulatory affairs and intellectual property at Presperse. He has previously held a number of technical positions involving rheology, including global technical marketing manager for a leading supplier of rheological additives. He has 35 years of experience in the cosmetic industry, has authored a number of professional papers, edited a book on rheology in Marcel Dekker’s Cosmetic Science and Technology Series, and holds several US patents.
