P1 students from the Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design major had the privilege of going to the Society of Cosmetic Chemist Michigan Chapter meeting in Big Rapids, Michigan at Ferris State University. We arrived to the university’s campus early afternoon to attend a presentation given by the executive board of the chapter. The presentation was about careers in the cosmetic industry and why making cosmetics is a science. After the talk, we had the opportunity to display posters and to network with major cosmetic companies such as Dow Corning and Amway before the meeting officially started.

There were two lectures given by guest speakers that day entitled, “Green Fragrance Solubilizers” and “Exopolysaccharides – EPS.” They were both very interesting and educational and gave us all an insight into the science of formulation. After the talks, we were able to continue networking over a lovely meal catered by the university. As a class, we graciously appreciate the funding from the dean’s office that made this trip a success. None of the students that went had ever been to a SCC meeting before, and we were very excited that we had the opportunity to go thanks to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. We gained so much knowledge on the industry and the science behind formulating.
