So why would you want to make your own per-
sonal care or cosmec products anyway?
To tailor the product(s) to your requirements
and control what actually goes into them is
probably the biggest reason.
To formulate products from the ground up to
be therapeuc in nature - where every ingre-
dient is there for a specic reason & purpose.
These cosmoceucal products can be very
powerful therapeuc agents, parcularly when
tailor made for an individuals needs, rather
than for the very typical mass market/lowest
cost scenario, where ingredients are in the for-
mula at less than ideal levels to make what are
called label claims.
To cost eecvely prepare products for end cli-
ent treatments at a fracon of the cost of simi-
lar or oen lower quality commercial products.
To gain enjoyment from the formulaon and
manufacturing of products for clients, family &
Workshop Content:
Cosmec Chemistry 101 - Learn about the
dierent classes of ingredients generally
found within each type of cosmec or per-
sonal care product and how they aect the
appearance, texture and skin feel of these
types of products.
Therapeuc formulaon - Learn how to for-
mulate cosmoceucal products and make
appropriate selecons of ingredients that t
the required therapeuc outcome, product
look and feel and client requirements.
Emulsions - Since 80% of all cosmecs are
emulsion based we will spend some me
looking at the basic types of emulsions, the
history and developmental chemistry behind
how emulsions science has developed over
the years. From Cold Cream to the latest
polymer based high end products.
Balms & Ointments - Learn when a balm or
ointment is the beer choice as a delivery
vehicle compared to other external dose
forms. Discover just how simple (or com-
plex) these products can be and the best and
quickest methods for manufacture.
Spritzs - Oen mes a liquid based spray-
able soluon is the most appropriate deliv-
ery method, a good example is an aer sun
(sunburn) cooling & hydrang mist. In this
secon we will look at the types of surfac-
tants & emulsiers suitable for this type of
product, the uses for spritz based products
and some sample formula.
Gels & Serums - Another important class of
cosmec ingredients are the hydrocolloids.
These substances act as thickening or gelling
agents and viscosity modiers. We will look
at a variety of naturally derived and man-
made hydrocolloids and see when each is
appropriate across a variety of applicaons
and uses.
Preservaon - Dealing with microbial con-
taminaon and product stability are key
points to address within formulaon. We
will look at the opons available.
By the end of this workshop you should feel
competent to:
Understand the various types of chemi-
cal components found within a variety of
cosmec & personal care products.
Understand the therapeuc formulaon
technique & apply it to the formulaon
of external dose forms.
Discover when each external dose form
is appropriate and for what type of dis-
eases or condions each is best suited.
