Why should you attend?

Currently there is a lack of truly "natural" sunscreen actives (i.e. UV filters). This means that you'll need to rely on naturally sourced inorganic-only sunscreens for your formulations (good news is that COSMOS has approved  number of inorganic sunscreen materials). But, this brings with it another set of challenges (limited choice within other ingredients, compatibility issues...). Overcome them today by joining this course! You will:

  1. Identify the right ingredients (UV filters, emulsifiers, emollients, water-resistant agents...) that are suitable for your natural formulations

  2. Formulate natural sun care products with appealing organoleptic properties with expert tips

  3. Know the differences between different certification guidelines (ECOCERT, COSMOS) for natural, and how these apply to sunscreen products
