Why should you view this course?

Lack of truly "natural" sunscreen actives (i.e. UV filters) means that you need to rely only on naturally sourced inorganic sunscreens. Good news – COSMOS approves most of the inorganic sunscreen materials. Bad news – new set of challenges like limited choice within other ingredients, compatibility issues.... Learn the tricks of the trade from Julian Hewitt to:

  1. Identify the right ingredients (UV filters, emulsifiers, emollients, water-resistant agents...) that are suitable for your natural formulations

  2. Formulate natural sun care products with appealing organoleptic properties with expert tips

  3. Know the differences between different certification guidelines (ECOCERT, COSMOS) for natural, and how these apply to sunscreen products
