Scrub Up On Science Challenge 2019

Are your students budding cosmetic scientists? Have they got the scientific skills, knowledge and creativity required to create a stand-out bath bomb or bubble bath mixture?

Graphic Bath

Now in its fifth successful year, the Scrub up on Science competition is once again open! We are asking students all around the UK to think about the chemical processes involved in creating cosmetics and personal care products and put their own skills to the test.

We want your budding chemists to enter for the chance for their team to win the title of Young Cosmetic Scientists of the Year, 2019. To win this prestigious title, they will have to:

  • test a hypothesis while creating a bubble bath or bath bomb (you can request FREE surfactant from us!)
  • add an element of their own research
  • submit evidence of their experiment in a film or presentation for judging.

The chosen finalists will go on to compete against each other and recreate their product for the judges at London Zoo on 18 June 2019 and be in with a chance of being crowned 2019’s winners.
