Antiperspirant and Deodorant Technology: Science, Functional Ingredients, Market Benefits, Practical Application

  January 24, 2019  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, New Brunswick, NJ or Virtually
June 4-5, 2019

Who Should Attend?
The course should be of value to those working with cosmetic/toiletry products focused on antiperspirants and deodorant applications, as well as to those in industry and research laboratories interested in a basic understanding of the technologies, clinical aspects, and application of these products.

The course is intended for entry and mid level development technologists, and up-to-date refresher for experienced individuals. Chemists, microbiologists, analytical scientists, and process engineers from the field of cosmetics, toiletries, pharmaceuticals, bioengineering, and food industries will also benefit from the opportunity to understand more about regulations, formulations, and process parameters for an FDA regulated product.

Course Description
Underarm actives and consumer products continue to evolve as consumer grooming habits change, global regulations impact what can be sold to consumers, and changing emotive perceptions of safety and acceptable actives tied in with new scientific information about safety are documented. This was demonstrated in the 1970’s with the banning of fluorocarbons, perception about absorption of aluminum into the blood stream in the 1980-1990’s morphed underarm grooming from antiperspirants to deodorants, and now the global restrictions being placed upon volatile cyclosiloxanes such as D4 and D5.

This 2-day intensive course is intended to provide a comprehensive review of the fundamental aspects of antiperspirants and deodorants. We will explore the anatomy of the underarm axilla and how antiperspirant actives impact wetness control and effective deodorants ingredient’s impact odor control. Understanding chemistry of sweat reducing actives and odor pathway disruption will improve success in developing more efficient delivery of this actives and ingredients to the axilla area. 

Additionally, we will explore what are acceptable protocols and statistics for measuring clinical efficacy of these actives, basic parameters for developing functional antiperspirant and deodorant actives and consumer products that match consumer needs, and technology and market trends. Though the course will be structured, there will be opportunity for open discussion about specific problems and needs of participants.
