The Society of Cosmetic Scientists promotes education, research and collaboration to advance the science of cosmetics.

The SCS Diploma in Cosmetic Science allows you to study without having to attend lessons or lectures at a college or training centre. The course is usually studied over one year, starting in September each year but can be deferred to a second year.

The SCS Distance Learning Course is the A to Z of cosmetic science.  From feasibility to product launch; it provides all the guidance and skill sets needed for a cosmetic organisation.

I would highly recommend this course to anybody with an interest in developing their career within the cosmetics industry.  The content is interesting, challenging, incredibly varied and it is of relevance to a wide number of roles within the industry.

Having this industry recognised qualification has allowed me to demonstrate that I am eager to continue my professional development in my own time and I feel this will continue to benefit my career in this industry.
