As the Chair Education Committee of the IFSCC, I would like to encourage all SCC and AOCS members to attend a unique joint education event presented by the Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SCC) and the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS) taking place in New York City at the Sheraton Times Square:
Monday, December 10, 2018 at the SCC Annual Scientific Meeting & Technology Showcase
- Analysis & Cosmetic Use of Natural Oils (8:30am-12:30pm EST)
- GMO: A Primer for the Personal Care Industry (1:30pm-5:30pm EST)
These two programs will provide information presented by the best technical minds available in both societies on these critical topics. Natural products are becoming more and more important in the cosmetic industry replacing synthetic, non-biodegradable or non-sustainable raw materials. With a great deal of confusion on these topics, these two programs will address the critical details. The full program information is available here.
While neither SCC nor AOCS has an opinion on these topics, we are pleased to provide the latest information in an open platform to address the best science on these topics.
AOCS is the premier non-profit providing education and analytical methods on many natural products, including natural oils. SCC is the oldest and largest non-profit providing education to the cosmetics and personal care industry. Together, we will provide a wide range of technical information and, through a panel format, have dialogue on all sides of the controversial topic.
I encourage you to register today for the Society of Cosmetic Chemists’ 72nd Annual Scientific Meeting & Technology Showcase where 35+ knowledge experts will convene to share the tools you need to enhance your professional development. These knowledge experts include: Robert Bianchini (Rodan + Fields), Jason Harcup (Unilever), Sarah Jindal (Mintel), Paul Jones (Mary Kay), Taiwo Koyejo (Fragrance Creators Association), and many others.
I look forward to seeing you at these programs.
