Summer School in chemistry and formulation for cosmetics

Three main topics in chemistry and formulation for cosmetics

Summer School: Chemistry and formulation for cosmetics from June 19th to July 7th, 2023

ESCOM Chimie benefits from a well-established expertise and network in chemistry and cosmetics.

Summer school programme is fully delivered in English and intends to provide you with complementary knowledge and skills in formulation and cosmetics science over three main topics :

  1. Formulation and cosmetics applications
  2. Perfumes, fragrances & flavours
  3. Encapsulation, active delivery & skin care

Lectures are delivered either by ESCOM academics and researchers or by speakers from the industry. During the past editions, we were glad to have companies such as L’Oréal, Chanel, Solvay, LVMH, Givaudan among our partners.

Each week includes lectures, practice in lab, visits of international companies and a taste of the French culture thanks to discovery French language courses and cultural activities and outgoings (visits of heritage sites, gastronomy, cooking…).

The provisional programme for 2023 is available here. You can have an overview of the past editions in video :
