Workshops & Seminars

“Fundamentals Workshops” are held twice yearly and address both basic knowledge and new developments in applications. 

Customers can either participate in open workshops that use presentations, lab demonstrations and hands-on test series to provide insight into the latest cosmetic innovations or attend customized seminars that are tailored to the specific needs of individual customers. The topics cover a broad spectrum of customer interests, such as sunscreen & self-tanning formulations, skin care formulation concepts and color cosmetics.
