Why should you view this course?

In search for multi-functional ingredients, the cosmetic industry has turned to polymers, especially those that are sourced sustainably. Due to the perceived reduction of skin penetration and general safety, global registration regulations favor their use in today’s personal care products. And thanks to evolving technology & controlled processing, you can find more focused multi-functional polymers (styling, conditioning, thickening, emulsification…) to achieve specific needs in hair care, skin care, underarm applications, cleansers…

Need help selecting the right polymeric ingredient for your formulation? Join the course and:

  1. Understand how, why & when to select the right polymeric active from the diverse options available today

  2. Reduce trial & error and simplify your selection process by learning how to utilize INCI as a selection tool, what questions to ask of polymer vendors…

  3. Better design multi-functional & regulation-friendly formulations with practical tips from Eric Abrutyn.
