Why should you view this course?

There is fast-growing consumer concern about the sweat glands' blockage by aluminium salts in deodorants leading to potential adsorption into the bloodstream. It is driving the formulators to revamp their formulations strategy to meet both the industry standards and consumers expectations. The category sees a transformation from petroleum and synthetic based chemistry to natural based, resource-renewable, and environmentally-sound technologies

But the challenge is the introduction of an antimicrobial functional ingredient from a very limited pool of natural-based ingredients to formulate aesthetically pleasing and highly performing deodorants, easily delivered to the underarm area. The movement of the consumers from chemically designed antiperspirant products to resource renewable environmentally sound plant-based deodorants is no more a trend but a reality.

  1. Understand the odor control in underarm category in depth and formulate easily natural and plant-based deodorants

  2. Learn to employ plant-based ingredients (having odor control properties, antimicrobial) in your formulation that is consumer acceptable.
