An Excellent Course! It gathers key information that cannot be extracted from books and magazines. I got a better understanding of skin physiology and impact / need of the different type of ingredients.

The course is excellent! Good overall summary and many ideas on the latest ideas in the field.

Michael W. , from Ponsus Pharma

Very good course that provided a good explaination of the properties of the emollients and humectants etc used to produce moisturiser products.

Tony E. , from Orica

Very good! It brought some perspective on the different mechanism used to moisturize the skin as well as the categories of ingredients that enable skin moisturizing. The testing method section was very useful as well.
