This course will review the methodologies used to develop the major types of cosmetic and toiletries products. Idea generation, formulation development, manufacturing considerations and stability testing will be discussed for each product type. The basis in the development of stable emulsions will also be discussed. Among the product types to be reviewed will be: creams, lotions, hair products (including shampoos, conditioners, waving products and grooming products), makeup products, shaving products, soaps and related washing products. Particular attention will be given to critical problem areas which can affect the development process as well as the effects of specific ingredients on product performance, stability and product scale-up.
