Lipid Chemistry bubbles

Introduction to Lipid Chemistry

Learn how to avoid expensive formulation mistakes through a better understanding of lipid chemistry. This session will show you how focusing on interactions rather than the behaviors of individual ingredients will achieve superior results every time


Processing naturals for optimized functionality and performance

Learn how ingredients that appear similar can have very different quality, stability, and cosmetic usability. This session demonstrates how expert processing optimizes the functionality and performance of naturals and shows you how to select the best solution for your needs.

Oxidative stable oils bubbles

High oxidative stable oils and bio-active ingredients

Learn how to optimize the shelf life, safety, and performance of your natural-based formulations. This session will show how the composition of fatty acids and naturally occurring tocopherols can impact stability and functionality and demonstrate how a high-quality oil phase can protect the skin barrier against environmental stressors.


Crystallization and impact on stability and texture transformations

Learn how to use crystallization to achieve the right texture, consistency, and sensory appeal for your formulation. This session explains how ingredient composition, melting profile, compatibility, polymorphism, and processing all impact the crystallization process and shows you how to overcome stability challenges.

Melting profile

An in-depth look at the melting profile

Learn everything you need to know about the melting profile. What it is, how it is determined, and how you can use it as a tool to predict ingredient behavior in a cosmetic formulation. The session balances in-depth theory with advice on putting your newfound knowledge to practical use in the laboratory.
