Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company LLC has launched a virtual Cosmetics Science Center offering free, video-on-demand, cosmetic science training modules.
The new cosmetic science training website is designed for new formulators, experienced formulators desiring a refresher, and marketing or sales professionals working in the industry who would like some basic technical training in the area of cosmetics science.
Irwin Palefsky, president of Cosmetech Laboratories and knowledgeable consultant in the cosmetics and personal care industry, is the speaker for the six introductory modules. Topics include “Introduction to Formulation Basics,” “Emulsifiers,” “Viscosity, Rheology and Preservation,” “Producing Emulsions,” and “Shampoo Formulation & Other Surfactant Systems.” Additional modules will be produced for the website over the next few months and presented by other industry consultants.
“The presentations were intended to provide a basic understanding of the chemistry and functionality of the ingredients used in topical personal care formulations,” said Irwin Palefsky, president of Cosmetech Laboratories. “The more we know about this, the more effective we can be in developing successful, safe, and functional skin care products.”
“We are excited to sponsor this free educational tool for the cosmetics and personal care industry,” commented Rose Durham, marketing manager for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products. “We have been very successful in promoting our Zemea® propanediol in the cosmetics and personal care market for the last eight years and wanted to provide an educational resource to the industry. This provides another avenue to reach out to the cosmetic science community.”
The Cosmetics Science Center will be launched on May 13, 2014, at the New York Society of Cosmetics Chemists Supplier’s Day show, being held in Edison, NJ. Users can register for the website at http://www.CosmeticsScienceCenter.com.
