OVERVIEW

Cosmetic Products is divided into two parts, one purely chemical, technological and formulative, the second is concerning all regulatory aspects, with particular attention to the European Cosmetic Regulation 1223/09. This second part is treated in collaboration with a professional figure with extensive expertise, to give a more practical vision of the cosmetic supply chain, and of related problems. The final aim is to bring the students as close as possible to the cosmetic world  to measure their skills.

The course is carried out through frontal teaching. Students are provided with the slides presented and explained, to be integrated with their notes. Textbooks are recommended but not required.

At the end of the program there will be a session of exam simulations and team work with case studies
