29th Congress of the IFSCC – 2016

What an event! The 29th IFSCC Congress was a phenomenal experience. With over 1300+ industry professionals in attendance, IFSCC2016 was a Cosmetics and Personal Care Educational Extravaganza!

The US Society would like to thank everyone who was able to attend and we hope you had a wonderful and exhilarating experience!

The scientific program provided the latest breakthroughs in Cosmetic Science that allowed us to go“Beyond Dreams into New Frontiers”. Inviting the opportunity to “Innovate” new ideas that will “Inspire” us to “Imagine” all the opportunities available to us.

We would like to thank the Committee on Scientific Affairs (COSA) who had the difficult task of selecting 74 podium presentations and 300+ poster presentations from 450 submissions. We would also like to thank our incredible 8 keynote speakers, who provided a thought proving address to our Congress attendees.

“The IFSCC is the only global organization dedicated to the science and scientists of cosmetics…nowhere else will you find the breadth, depth and quality of science presented as IFSCC Congresses and Conferences,” – rallied IFSCC President 2015-2016, Philipe Auderset.

In addition to the General Sessions, we are also very proud of the attendance experienced at the Exhibitors and Poster Presentations. And our first ever InnoTech/Connect Zone, where podium presenters and Universities discussed emerging technology transfer, was a hit! Read more about it from this Cosmetics & Toiletries article.

And, of course, how can we forget the Social Events. Congress attendees thoroughly enjoyed themselves in Orlando, FL. From the Opening Ceremony, to the Closing Gala Banquet which was followed by Club IFSCC.
