This is a very special year for the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) as the organization continues to celebrate its Diamond Jubilee. Founded in 1945, the SCC is the oldest and largest membership organization focused exclusively on cosmetic science education.

After 75 years, the Society boasts one of the biggest footprints in the cosmetics and personal care industry. With our international, national and local events, we are proud to represent the industry and the greater scientific community as a well-respected organization that has never strayed from its mission: to advance cosmetic science.
