a one year course which can be deferred to a second year

Whether you are employed in the cosmetics and toiletries industry or in a related area and seeking to enter the field, the SCS Diploma Course will give you an industry recognised qualification in the essentials of cosmetic science.

The course is in a modular format with units written and assessed by experts in the industry. The material can be accessed from www.scsdlc.com once a student is enrolled on the course.  For some units, specially designed practical activity kits are available to enable you to undertake important practical work in your own home - or wherever you choose to do it.  

Distance learning is a system of study which you can use without having to attend a series of lessons or lectures given in the traditional way at a college or training centre. It is a system which you can study on your own, at your own pace and at a time and place of your choice.

Topics covered include:

  • The foundations in chemistry, physiology, biochemistry and microbiology
  • The key functional roles of development, production, packaging and marketing
  • Vital auxiliary services such as stability testing, microbial preservation, quality assurance, legislation, safety assessment, performance evaluation and market research
  • Specific product categories such as hair, skin and oral care, colour cosmetics, aerosols and perfumes
