Samantha Parrott and Sienna Gerdeman, P2 students in the Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design program, attended the In-Cosmetics North America Tradeshow on New York City’s Pier 36. The trade show consists of about 148 different booths of different supplier companies, including Wacker, Sensient, Ashland, Actives, AkzoNobel, Nexeo, and KOBO. They visited each booth at the event, making contacts and networking for jobs in cosmetic science. They were also able to share information about the the Cosmetic Science and Formulation Design at UT with companies looking for new talent.

Ms. Parrott and Ms. Gerdeman learned about the latest innovations in the industry by talking one on one to those in the industry. They were amazed by the latest technologies that were entering the market, such as color-changing lipstick and new methods of quality testing.

The water-based nail polish and skin softening shower gel that Ms. Gerdeman had made during her summer internship at Wacker Chemical Corporation were also featured at the tradeshow. The students also met with Mark Chandler of ACT Solutions, Inc., and he tried Ms. Gerdeman’s nail polish.
