Why should you attend?

The trouble of not understanding which functional siloxane to choose to meet formulation compatibility, delivered benefits, and how to formulate or cooperate into the formula is not a surprise to cosmetics formulators. While the struggles with siloxane chemistry still persist, the market is already talking about ‘non-siloxane’ formulation due to environmental issues and consumer perception.

Join this course to excel the understanding of present siloxane chemistry and technology and be future ready. Learn to:

Get in-depth understanding of all types of functional siloxanes, from volatile cyclics to simple linear, to added functionality utilizing amino, alkoxy, alkyl, phenyl, and fluoro chemistry
Improve cosmetic performance with clear insights into the unique physical properties and how they affect functionality and performance
Find adequate replacements for functional siloxanes that have unique property functionality without sacrificing performance and functionality
Siloxane ingredients/technology

Who should attend?

Formulating chemist who are looking to enhance their current formulations.
Marketing, ingredient suppliers who want to better position their siloxane containing cosmetic products.
