New Course on Gums, Thickeners, Rheology Modifiers is July 23-24

June 7, 2013

• The Society of Cosmetic Chemists has added a new course on “Gums, Thickeners and Rheology Modifiers,” which will be held July 23-24 at the Doubletree Newark Airport Hilton, Newark, NJ. The course instructor is Dr. Robert Lochhead.

The rheology of cosmetics and personal care products must be controlled to control the delivery of the product to the skin and hair and to provide important cues to the consumer.

In this course, the rheological characteristics and formulation considerations will be introduced for the major classes of gums and thickeners. The course is well suited for formulators, marketers and salespersons of cosmetic and personal care products as well as upstream scientists and engineers.

Dr. Lochhead serves as a professor at the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at the University of Southern Mississippi, and he has been director of that school for the past 20 years.

Prior to joining academia, the first 25 years of his career were spent in industrial research that ranged from polymer and silicone synthesis to colloid and surface science and to the management of a large hydrophilic polymers’ research group. Dr. Lochhead is the author of more than 100 scientific papers and reviews, and a named inventor on 22 patents. The polymers that he has invented have enabled new and better technologies with beneficial societal and environmental impact.

The two-day course is $550 for SCC members, $275 for student members and $675 for non-members before July 9. Fees after that date are $600, $300 and $725, respectively.
