Sunscreens: Science, Technology and Product Development

 
  June 28, 2017  
     
 
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
September 28, 2017


Who Should Attend?
This course is designed for professionals in the personal care, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries who are engaged in sunscreen product development, including those in:

  • Research & Development
  • Technology
  • Marketing & Technical Sales
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • QA & QC
  • Business Decision Making
  • Formulation & Product Development

Course Description
To formulate a successful sunscreen product for topical application requires a multidisciplinary approach. Factors that need to be taken into consideration include the identification of the UV absorbing material within the skin, scientific learning on skin photo-biochemistry and function, UV-interacting chemistry and science, and appropriate delivery systems for optimal effectiveness and safety. 

This course will provide an overview of ultraviolet mechanism to damage and sunscreen technologies that enable the participants to design proper strategies for successful product development and marketing. In addition, small group discussion/workshops on real-life case studies will be conducted throughout the course to familiarize the participants with the complex physical-chemical framework.
