Intro to Polymer Science For Cosmetic Formulators

August 2, 2013

Polymers represent one of the major classes of materials used in cosmetic formulations. There are a wide variety of polymers used in a broad range of functions and a basic understanding of polymer structure–property relationships is an essential tool for the cosmetic formulator.  To that end, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists will hold a two-day course offering introduction to polymer science and its applications in cosmetic industry this October.

The event, which will be held Oct. 23-24 at the DoubleTree Newark Airport Hotel, will be conducted by Michael Fevola , Ph.D., and Dr. Andrea V. Greyson. They will introduce formulators and suppliers to cosmetic polymers.

The course will be pragmatic, but polymer science theory will be woven into the applications, according to the SCC.

Course participants can expect to emerge from this course with knowledge of most of the polymers used in the industry, the reasons for their specific use in formulation, an introduction to the underlying theory, and information on industry trends with these materials.
