Chemical, Natural and Healthcare Product Formulation
Chemical, biological, pharmaceutical, food, nutraceutical and personal care products are not comprised only of the main active ingredient(s) but must be formulated in a way that enables their practical use.
For example, a moisturising skin lotion must not only contain moistening agents but also the components required to create a stable colloidal suspension with suitable viscosity, skin feel and fragrance to make it an attractive product for the consumer, with antimicrobial agents and a suitably long shelf life.
- Product design process
- Physical properties of formulated products
- Chemical properties of formulated products
- Functional properties of formulated products
- Methods of analysis
- Commercial production
- Process economics
This degree promotes interdisciplinary innovation. For example, Chemical, Natural and Healthcare Product Formulation combined with electives from Biochemistry will create more natural products.
