Advanced Cosmetics Formulation: Micro and Nano-emulsions, Highly Concentrated & LC Emulsions, Low Energy Preparation Methods
Most of the cosmetic formulations that are actually sold on the market are based on emulsion technology. Knowledge in colloidal science and phase diagram studies are very powerful tools that give extremely valuable help to formulate innovative formulations based on other kind of dispersions such as nano-emulsions, microemulsions, highly concentrated emulsion or liquid crystal stabilized emulsions. These dispersions can solve common macro emulsions issues such as physico-chemical stability, solubilization of higher amount of oil and preparation of sprayable and transparent formulations. Furthermore since these dispersions are based on nanostructured phased, it allows a better penetration into the skin of the actives present in the formulations and consequently a better effectiveness.
In this training we will also explore the possibility to prepare these innovative dispersions by so-called low energy methods. These methods require almost no mechanical energy since they takes advantage of the internal energy of the systems and can be divided in two approaches: PIT (Phase inversion temperature) and PIC (Phase inversion composition). Both methods allow to prepare dispersions with very fine particle size and low polidispersity. The key formulation parameters and techniques necessary to prepare and characterize advanced formulations by low energy methods will be reviewed in this training.
