Wendy Lim, Director, SWMCC International Pte Ltd

STAR for Formulation Science of Cosmetics course has helped my company adopt the technology on skincare cleanser and serum in powder form. It is an advanced technology that promotes sustainability through water conservation. This excites our company as Singapore is now focusing on Green Economy.

The course is also tailored and customised for our company. I am delighted by how the trainer planned the program to cater to my business needs. It is also interactive as I can communicate directly with the trainer. The hands-on practical session is very fun too. I get to experience the process of formulating skincare products and understand the ingredients used. I gained so much knowledge on formulation of skincare products and also understand the science behind the products. I am better equipped with the knowledge on how to develop and launch a new product to the market.

The mentoring sessions also helped me to formulate and develop the product. They have gone beyond training to share with us how I can proceed further to commercialise the product. As an SME, I am very grateful for the selfless help from the trainers. They are the very expert in the area and have certainly helped to clarify my doubts.
