Skin Measurement Workshop

Skin Measurement Workshop
A collaboration between the SCC and TRI Princeton

May 6, 2019 (9:00am – 5:00pm)
Javits – Level 1 Meeting Rooms

Skin care continues to be a vibrant and fast-growing sector in the cosmetics industry.  Strong consumer demand is driving cosmetic scientists to develop ever more sophisticated test methods for product testing and claim substantiation.

The Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) & TRI Princeton have designed this workshop to take the participants through the basic science behind key skin measurements, and to update them on the latest developments in the field. If you are new to skin measurements, or just interested in keeping up to date with the latest methods, this is the workshop for you.

Presentations to include:

  • Principles of Skin Moisture and Barrier Function Measurements – Paul Cornwell, PhD – TRI Princeton
  • Latest Developments in Skin Surface Moisture Imaging – Bob Imhof – Biox Systems Ltd
  • Spectroscopy Measurements on Skin – Samuel Gourion-Arsiquaud, PhD – TRI Princeton
  • Recent Advances in Submicron IR Spectroscopy and Imaging of Skin – Curtis Marcott, PhD – Light Light Solutions, LLC
  • UV protection of Skin – Qihong Zhang, PhD – The Estée Lauder Companies
  • Effects of UV and Ozone on Skin as Determined by Spectroscopy – Samuel Gourion-Arsiquaud, PhD – TRI Princeton
  • Measuring Skin Micro-Relief and Wrinkles – Roger McMullen, PhD – Ashland

Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Product Development

Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Product Development
May 6, 2019 (9:00am – 5:00pm)
Javits – Level 1 Meeting Rooms

Course Summary

This course will cover the entire process of how a new product gets created in the cosmetic industry. After taking the course you will know details of the three main phases of product development from idea creation, prototype development and commercialization.

Who Should Attend

This course will be useful for scientists, sales people and cosmetic marketers alike.  This includes formulators, quality control chemists, regulatory scientists and product development professionals. Raw material sales people will also benefit from learning all the development issues facing cosmetic formulators.

In addition, small business owners, and those developing their own cosmetics and personal care products, will gain valuable knowledge and insight concerning the complete life cycle of product development in the industry.

Note: this is an SCC NEXTGEN course.  Courses marked NEXTGEN are primarily geared toward young professionals, students and those who are new to or looking for a refresher on certain topics.

Course Outline

This course is divided into three primary segments:

1. Ideation – In this section you will learn various ways in which ideas for new products are generated and how they are converted to descriptions used by Research and Development for turning them into real world products.

This section will cover:

  • Market research
  • Consumer research and insights
  • Idea synthesis
  • Using open innovation to find solutions
  • Technology transfer from universities
  • Partnering with suppliers
  • How ideas are filtered & refined

2. Development – In this section you will learn how to convert ideas into working prototypes, the types of tests needed to demonstrate safety and effectiveness, and everything involved with realizing a commercial prototype.

Specific topics covered will be:

  • Developing a product description from an idea
  • Generating & Finding starting formulas
  • Techniques for creating prototypes
  • How to test and refine prototypes
  • Working with different packing materials
  • Steps involved in developing product claims

3. Commercialization – In this section you will discover how lab formulations are turned into full production scale batches and how to deal with the challenges that may develop. Also, the required paperwork you need to generate will be described.

This section will cover:

  • Process engineering and formula scale up
  • Dealing with issues that arise during production
  • Setting product specifications
  • Regulatory issues and developing product dossiers

Lipids in Personal Care

Lipids in Personal Care
Benjamin Schwartz, AAK

May 6, 2019 (9:00am – 5:00pm)
Javits – Level 1 Meeting Rooms

Course Summary

This course is a detailed look into the roles that plant-based lipids play in personal care and cosmetics formulations.  Particular focus will be put on how the structure of fatty acids found in plant-based lipids, and more importantly the triglycerides and wax esters that contain them, determine the interdependent properties of oxidative stability, compatibility, solid fat content, and crystallization types of various oils, fats, and waxes.  Further, we will examine how these properties can inform our choices of oils, fats, waxes, and their derivatives within different personal care and cosmetic products, including anhydrous and emulsion-based products.  Finally, we will review some of the scientific literature describing the potential therapeutic benefits of different components of plant-based oils and fats.

Who Should Attend

This will be a fairly technical course, best-suited for professionals with at least some basic knowledge of lipid chemistry and personal care/cosmetic formulation.  However, in addition to formulators, quality control chemists, regulatory scientists, and product development professionals will find many new insights within the course materials.  As well, any sales and marketing professionals who have a scientific background should find the course beneficial to their current positions.

Course Outline

Brief review of vegetable oil lipids, their molecular structures, biological roles, and naming conventions.  With focus on: Triglycerides, Sterols, Waxes, Tocopherols.

Oxidative stability of fatty acids and triglycerides review:

  • How fatty acid degrees of unsaturation determine oil and fat stability.
  • Oxidative stability testing (OSI), determination of relative stability of oils/fats, use of testing for determining stability of finished products.
  • Focus on antioxidant mechanisms of preventing degradation and rancidity, with comparison of native antioxidants and added antioxidants.
  • Formulation strategies for antioxidant additives in skin care and cosmetics, comparing functional levels of inclusion, synergies of antioxidant combinations.

Triglyceride composition, fat composition, and functionality in applications:

  • Introduction of Solid Fat Content concepts, specifically for anhydrous applications.
  • How individual fatty acid melt points combine to create unique SFC curves of triglycerides.
  • How the composition of triglycerides found in vegetable fats then determine the unique SFC profiles of those fats.
  • Examples of how counter-intuitive differences in SFC curves impacts different fats in different applications.

Crystallization and the molecular structure of triglycerides and waxes:

  • Molecular structure of various fat and wax crystals, polymorphic behavior, x-ray crystallography analysis
  • Incompatibility of fats due to unique triglyceride compositions.
  • Eutectics, how incompatibility can alter the final melt point of a fat/oil blend.
  • Blending fats and oils in anhydrous and emulsions, formulation strategies.
  • Waxes as structuring agents in anhydrous products, compatibility with different fats and oils.

Vegetable oils/fats, waxes, emulsifiers and their roles in skin care formulations:

  • Brief review of native skin lipid composition, epidermis, sebaceous gland, and stratum corneum structure.
  • Similarities and dissimilarities of vegetable oil composition compared to native skin lipids.
  • Emulsions and natural oils, advantages and disadvantages, formulations strategies, updating legacy formulas that contain synthetics.
  • Sterols and waxes as emulsion stabilizers.
  • Vegetable oil derived fatty acid-based emulsifiers, how their structure determines functionality, molecular structure and the HLB system.

Brief review of dermatological research studying efficacy of treatment with vegetable oils and their derivatives, proposed mechanisms:

  • Sterols and Triterpene Esters
  • Omega 3 and 6 fatty acid dominant oils
  • Antioxidants
  • Polyphenols, phospholipids, glycolipids
