    A cold process primer to prep your Haute look

    Today’s urban millennial consumer wants to be environmentally-conscious without sacrificing performance for skincare products.

    Our cold process formula is sustainable and energy-conserving, plus uses a carefully chosen balance of safe synthetic technologies and natural ingredients.

    This lightweight primer provides matte moisture and a soft focus effect, with a powdery after feel.

    Natural antioxidants and extracts also reduce the appearance of fine lines and provide protection from urban pollution and blue light.

    Day 2

     12:15pm - 1:15pm

    Formulating with great aesthetics, stability and efficacy

    There is no one aesthetic that is right for every occasion. Aesthetics must connect with the target audience and occasion whilst translating a marketing idea into a finished product can be challenging. Also, serums and other low viscosity systems can be difficult to produce and aesthetics must fit with active and aroma (and audience).

    In this workshop - led by out official technical advisor - you will learn how to formulate whilst seeking aesthetics, stability, and efficacy (looking good, keeping it together, and working – just like in relationships!).

    Speaker: Mark Chandler, President, ACT Solutions Corp
