Subject Title
Formulation I

Subject Description
The physical properties of cosmetic emulsions are strongly influenced by the basic principles of surface science ie the interaction of different phases at a boundary.  Students will explore the theoretical and practical aspects of emulsions and factors affecting emulsion stability in a variety of product types:  creams, lotions, gels and aerosols.

Credit Status
One credit towards the Cosmetic Science Ontario Graduate Certificate Program.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

  1. Use principles of colloid and surface science to manufacture cosmetic bases.
  2. Evaluate the character of cosmetic bases through assessments of physical and organoleptic properties.
  3. Utilize the charge on an surfactant to formulate a product with specific functional characteristics.
  4. Discuss the factors affecting emulsion instability to be able to identify strategies to stabilize emulsions
  5. Modify the emulsifier chemistry to be able to create different organoleptic properties in an emulsion.
