Cosmetic Formulation Design 2018 : Advances in Cosmetic Formulation Design
Call For Papers
Cosmetic formulation design is a multidisciplinary and challenging area of focus for the cosmetic industry. It involves not only the incorporation of scientific understanding from colloidal science and complex fluids to generate products with good stability profiles and effective active delivery but also needs to take into account and engineer-in the correct rheological, tribological and surface/interfacial properties to ensure delightful sensory responses.
Current challenges in creating truly differentiated products in a highly competitive landscape and the new social and regulatory pressures to move towards greener and more sustainable solutions have created new advances in cosmetic formulation design incorporating both academic and industrial research advances in green chemistry, biosurfactants, advanced characterization etc. This conference for the first time will bring together leading industrial and academic research groups working in this area to highlight some of these key advances. The conference will be global in nature and will allow effective networking amongst industrial and academic scientists to further promote collaboration to further advance this highly applied research area.
Specific topics that will be covered include:
Green & Novel Biosurfactants & Biopolymers for Cosmetics
Rheology, Tribology & Sensory Linkages in Cosmetic Applications
Enhanced Deposition & Complex Coacervation
Stimuli Responsive or Smart Complex Fluids & Gels
Advances in Characterization
Microparticles, Nanoparticles and Nanomaterials in Cosmetic Formulations: Safety, Regulatory & Environmental Issues
Meeting will cover:
Theory & Modeling
Synthesis,formulation & manufacture
Characterization & Novel Experimental Techniques-microstructure, interactions, rheology
Dr. Samiul Amin, L’Oreal Research and Innovation
Prof. P. (Som) Somasundaran, Columbia University
One-page abstracts should be submitted as soon as possible and no later than the deadlines noted below. The abstract should include both the significance of the research as well as results that will be discussed to allow a scientific assessment of the work by the organizers. Please indicate if the abstract is for an oral or poster presentation. Only a limited number of oral presentation slots are available. Thus all submissions for oral presentations will be considered for both oral and poster.
Deadline for abstracts for oral presentations: March 15, 2018
Deadline for abstracts for poster presentations: March 15, 2018
All abstracts should be submitted electronically (https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/cosmetic/) and submissions must follow the template.
