    Basic Training Course 1 (POE Type Surfactant Course)
    Basic Training Course 2 (Food additives and natural surfactants)
    Basic Training Course 3 (Pre-mixed Emulsifying Complexes)
    Application Training Course  (Emulsion Technology)
  • Duration: Each course is designed for five (5) days, but several courses may be combined for a longer period of 10, 15, or 20 days.
  • Professional Feedback: Meetings and discussions are conducted regarding your specific development topics. Our specialists will be happy to offer advice and solutions to your current problems and issues. It is also possible to combine the basic training course with a personalized, specific project.
  • Marketing Trends: On the final day of the course, an optional program is offered where you can learn about recent trends in cosmetic market and make prototype formulations to match existing market products.
