Journal of Cosmetic Science

The Journal publishes technical papers on topics of interest to cosmetic scientists and is distributed six times per year, accessed exclusively by SCC Members and Journal Subscribers. Yearly Membership in the Society of Cosmetic Chemists includes printed volumes of the Journal of Cosmetic Science. In addition, members have access to the online Journal and Journal archives (Please note: Members can log-in to the online Journal with the email address the National Office has on record as well as membership ID number, which serves as password). Annual dues in the Society is currently $140. If you wish to subscribe to the Journal, you may do so without becoming a member of the Society. The price for 2017 is $250 (after January 31, 2017 there is a $25 late fee applied to the Journal price). The SCC accepts Visa, Mastercard and American Express. All checks must be drawn on a U.S. bank. Agency discounts are not accepted.

If you’re an overseas subscriber, you will be required to provide an email address where we’ll send the log-in information for 2017 only. You may enroll with a subscription service within the United States if you would also like a print version.
