Chemistry and personal care products

February 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Presented by Emma Davy.

The word chemical is often misused and misunderstood. Everything is made of chemicals, but as we become more aware of “chemicals” in society (those that are harmful and toxic), consumers are moving towards natural and plant-based personal care products. In this presentation, I will highlight the work done by myself and independent study students at Quest University outlining the history of perfumes of cosmetics. I will pay particular attention to understanding the evolution of ingredients, formulation, and the development of new products. Students will bring samples of personal care products that they prepared from plant-based ingredients.
