Introduction

There is a big gap from graduating from a cosmetic science or chemistry degree to knowing how to formulate in the real world.  And also a big gap between formulating in homecrafter fashion to formulating commercially.  Most formulators attempt to close these gaps by learning through a combination of receiving on the job knowledge and experience under the Chemist they work for and attending formulation workshops run by major manufacturers, such as Evonik, BASF, Seppic, Dow Corning, Croda, Univar who carry ingredients essential to formulating at a professional level. The Advanced Cosmetic Formulators Club aims to bring another way to close the gap by providing a global knowledge sharing platform for experienced formulators.

Who Can Join?

  • lab/R&D technicians, cosmetic scientists; or
  • those with or without science qualifications who already have essential key (scientific) formulation skills and formulate (or aim to formulate) for brands/manufacturers.

Important: The Club is unsuitable for those who formulate for natural brand(s) on a small scale as the formulations/information in the Club are advanced, using some ingredients not sold by DIY suppliers, and some synthetics.
