The 1st Hong Kong Secondary School Cosmetic Formulation Competition
Four F.5 students, Aneesa, Claudia, Ilana, and Zoey, entered the 1st Hong Kong Secondary School Cosmetic Formulation Competition organized by the City University of Hong Kong (Department of Chemistry) and Hong Kong Society of Cosmetic Chemists (HKSCC) and gained valuable learning experience.
Through applying the Chemistry knowledge and based on a set of complimentary cosmetic ingredients provided, the team spent a lot of time in the summer holidays designing cosmetic formulations and fabricating each of the cosmetic product including lipstick, face cream & face cleanser. Although the team did not manage to go into the final round, their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication to the cosmetic project are highly appreciated. It is definitely a valuable experience for students to apply their Chemistry knowledge to daily-life and develop their sense of scientific inquiry, collaboration, and problem-solving skills.
