Part of the “NextGen” initiative, the Society of Cosmetic Chemists will hold a Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Product Development CEP course on Sept. 20 at its New York City HQ office. 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 and 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.
Early bird registration fees are: non-SCC members-$490; SCC members-$360; and SCC student members-$210; after Sept. 5 prices are $540, $410 and $235, respectively.
