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.
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.
End date for applications is 25 July 2017. The Club opens on 1 August 2017 and closes on 31 July 2018. This is a trial period and if deemed successful will be reopened for another period.
Introductory price: US$70 for admission to the Club until 31 July 2018 (no price discount for late joiners). (Applications received after the closing date of 25 July will be considered every two months).
