Students are supported by experienced scientists and formulation tutors who have wide-ranging cosmetic formulation experience. Many of our tutors have experience in formulating for cosmetic brands (both small and large brands) so they have taken products from concept to shelf. You can learn more about our tutors here:

When you sign up to a course you can join our private online student community (hosted on Facebook) to meet and discuss with other students who have lots of knowledge, expertise and ideas to share. Our student community is lively and supportive; a great way to connect with students all over the world, as well as networking with skincare formulators and entrepreneurs in your own country.

In the group there is also a weekly or twice-weekly Q&A with a tutor to help answer any questions you have. You can leave your questions on the Q&A post and a tutor will reply within a couple of days. This system also allows you to learn from the questions other students are asking too! 

It is worth noting that our courses are primarily designed as self-study courses. They take a very thorough step-by-step approach and each module builds on the next. Therefore as you progress through the course you will gain the skills and knowledge needed to become an expert formulator, with a tutor available to answer occasional questions that may arise rather than our courses being fully tutored courses.
