CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, East Brunswick, NJ
August 1-2, 2013

Who Should Attend
This course is intended for beginner formulators or marketing personnel and those with some experience who have the desire to quickly widen their level of knowledge and become familiar with the marketing, technical and claim substantiation issues related to hair product development such as:

  • Analytical chemists 
  • Microbiologists
  • Scientists 
  • Technicians

Personnel in research and development, sales, marketing and labeling will find this course very valuable.

This course provides a review of the main marketing trends in hair care, followed by an analysis of the fundamental properties of human hair as related to cosmetic treatments. A thorough review of the foremost raw materials presently used in the industry will be discussed so that the formulators and marketing professionals will quickly become familiar with the products, properties and raw material supplied to the hair care area of the cosmetic industry. In addition, the main technologies and challenges relevant to product development in the areas of shampoos, conditioners, styling products, hair colorants, relaxers, etc., will be explained. A critical analysis of the methodology used for claim substantiation in hair care will also be addressed. An all-participants interactive session has been developed that is dedicated to the design of typical hair care products from the knowledge gained within the course.
