Professional Education
To become a professional cosmetic chemist, traditionally, you need a 4-year college or university degree typically in chemistry, chemical engineering, biology, and/or microbiology. However, large cosmetic companies with their own R&D departments are looking mostly for people who have Masters or PhD degrees in cosmetic science. Here are a few universities and organizations that offer an education in cosmetic science:
University of Cincinnati
University of Toledo
Society of Cosmetic Chemists
