Online Conference Programme

  • The theme for the in-cosmetics Formulation Summit 2020 is "Formulation in the climate change age".

    This years’ Formulation Summit will be coming to you in a new online format and will explore how cosmetic scientists in general, and cosmetic formulators in particular, can play a positive role.

    Our online programme will delve into the various aspects of “good” science that can enable formulators to create products that are fantastic for both consumers and the planet well beyond such stereotyped concepts as sustainable, natural and organic.

    Theme: Formulation Techniques
    The idea of this session is to share techniques that can help formulators develop products more efficiently and in a shorter time, thus decreasing the impact on the environment of R&D operations. In particular, the use of multivariate techniques for the development of formula prototypes and the use of rheology to speed up testing of such prototypes will be presented.
