Personal care is a diverse sector with products ranging from; personal hygiene (toiletries, oral care, liquid soaps), cosmetics (make-up, moisturisers), skincare (sun preparations, body creams and lotions) and wellbeing (nutraceuticals).

This is a great opportunity to gain a better understanding of how to successfully create new products in personal care, and their legislative requirements.

The workshop will include presentations, discussions and lab tours and cover topics such as; sourcing and choosing the right ingredients, formulation, product stability and shelf life, production process, packaging, life cycle analysis, legislation and scale up.

The workshop, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF, through the PROSPECT programme, is free to eligible SMEs located within the North-East LEP area (Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham) and will be delivered by CPI’s technical experts, from our facility in Sedgefield.
