  • What governs the delivery of an active ingredient into the skin (solubility & diffusion) and how you can adjust it
  • How to have greater effect using lower loadings of actives by addressing delivery specific to the cosmetic active ingredients
  • After focusing on purely efficacy factors, understand how to balance the sensorial-to-use aspects
