About the programme
The Master's degree in Advanced Cosmetic Sciences (ACS) forms chemists that can operate in cosmetic companies in the design, production, analysis, and certification of cosmetic products.
This Second Cycle Degree Program trains professionals able to grasp the emerging challenges arising from the current international regulations and aimed at the production of more effective and intrinsically safer cosmetics with reference to their entire life cycle.
ACS has an interdisciplinary spirit, aimed at providing a theoretical and practical training on the scientific and technological aspects of cosmetic products. The program is characterized by theoretical-practical courses related to the study of natural substances and of bioactive molecules used in cosmetics, to the chemistry and to the formulation of cosmetics, to the ingredients and formulations analysis. The anatomy, physiology and pathology of the skin will also be studied, together with the microbiological, functional and toxicological control of cosmetic products.
