No, we won't. Our courses teach you how to become an organic skincare or haircare formulator and entrepreneur, but we don't teach in-depth cosmetic chemistry in our courses.
In our experience, you do not need to be a chemist to be a formulator and to run a successful organic beauty business. You will however need to learn how your ingredients work, you will need to experiment with ingredients in your artisan skincare lab and you will need to trial different formulation skills and techniques.
If you want to receive a formal qualification in Cosmetic Chemistry, we recommend checking out the University degree programmes in your country. It is worth noting that most (if not all) cosmetic chemistry degrees will not teach you how to specialise in natural/organic ingredients and will not teach you how to start your own business.
