UC’s Online Cosmetic Science program has been growing at a rapid rate.

The UC online cosmetic science program has been growing at a rapid rate over the past few years. One area that is not covered under the original program is the manufacturing aspects of cosmetic products. The Hygienic Manufacturing of Cosmetic Products Graduate Certificate fills that gap and helps address an unmet need in cosmetic science education.

Why Study Cosmetic Science?

Earning a Cosmetic Science Degree is a great career choice for those interested in the science behind creating personal care and beauty products. Many students come from large cosmetic companies with chemistry or engineering degrees. Other students come from non-science majors such as business and marketing who are interested in learning more about the science behind the products.

A graduate degree in Cosmetic Science can help those looking to advance or grow their careers in cosmetics and personal care.
