Adding or swapping a single ingredient often is not the answer to tailoring a formulation to a specific market and application. The formulator must lay out a plan, knowing how to change the variable most important to adapting the aesthetics for a particular audience.

On Wednesday, May 23, 2018 (3:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT), the SCC will live stream the Principles of Emulsion Aesthetic Design and will be instructed by Mark Chandler; President of ACT Solutions Corp.
