What makes Autumn Harp special?
Autumn Harp is a USA-based contract manufacturer of personal care products. We work with global personal care customers, small and large. It comes as a surprise to some that we do this from the mostly rural state of Vermont. We are known for our collaborative, Scrum-style project approach, our ability to cleverly overcome hurdles and our aptitude for natural formulations. We have a very “can do” approach to everything involved in developing and manufacturing products.
R&D Formulation Team Manager
How your studies have helped you progress:
I was hired about a year ago to lead the formulation team at Autumn Harp. I have had a scientific career in the food world, but no experience specific to personal care formulation. I pursued the Certificate in Advanced Cosmetic Science this past year to help gain the necessary skills to be a formulator and to successfully lead other formulators. I selected the course specifically because it is solid on the basics, incorporates hands-on practicums and is comprehensive in theory. I have already been applying acquired learning to help solve formulation stability and product scale-up problems. I am confidently able to “teach forward” what I have learned to new chemists.
