Lipids in Personal Care and Cosmetics

Instructor: Benjamin Schwartz, Senior Personal Care Application Specialist, AAK USA Inc.

Format: On-Demand
This on-demand training is designed to fit into your busy schedule. On-demand access includes access to recordings, slides, and course materials for 30 days.

Course Summary: This course includes 8.5 hours of recorded lectures, instructor slides as well as a full transcript.

This course provides a detailed look into the roles that plant-based lipids can play in personal care and cosmetic formulations. Particular focus is placed 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. We 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.

This course is a collaboration with the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC). SCC members receive member pricing via a discount code provided by SCC. Please contact SCC if you have not received your code.
