The course addresses eight distinct yet interrelated topics, which are based on trends in cosmetic product formulation. The topics range from identifying advance technology-driven processes and raw materials to quality assurance and preservation. Formulating products with ingredients of natural origin are discussed while considering matauranga Maori (traditional knowledge) around rongoa (native flora herbal preparations). Additionally, the development of sustainable cosmetic formulations are addressed aligning to the values of kaitiakitanga. The content continues with other important aspects including; product evaluation, claims substantiation and safety assessment.
