Formulation Challenge

  • Formulation Challenge (17 Oct)

    The Formulation Challenge is a practical activity (think Master-Chef but for cosmetics) that will take place at in-cosmetics North America (in association with, and judged by, the Institute of Personal Care Science and Mintel).

    Winners will receive a prize, recognition and media coverage at the Awards Ceremony.

    2017 competitors included Colgate-Palmolive, Unilever, Estee Lauder and Shiseido.


    About the Challenge:

    A mystery box containing multiple personal care ingredients is provided. Teams then have 90 minutes to analyse and assemble a creation.

    Highly skilled professionals then displayed the precision of surgeons, the knowledge of chemists and the creativity of artists to prove they created the best formulation.

    In the end Colgate Palmolive claimed the 2017 title and created the winning formula.
